Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you. Exodus 20.12 NIV
Because I'm the Mom
The song ends with "You don't need the reason why. Because I said so. I'm the mom!"
I noticed one of my Chinese students laughing.
"Did your mom say that to you?" I asked. He nodded.
Then my Saudi woman started nodding too. She confessed that not only did her mom say it, she now says it to her daughters.
Moms may speak different languages, but motherhood is international.
