MAT 18, 195J HAL i«YLrS COLUMN Mother Resting After Celebrating Her Day In Way She Wants It KANSAS err yi* _ Many an American mother today is resling •f(er the ordeal of being a mother on Mother's Day. That is the situation in our fain- For years we have tried to moth 1 - er Mom on Mother's Day. Bul Mom Is hard lo molhe'r. she is so used to pampering her five children arvl two grandchildren that it is hard <or her to relax and let them pain- per her. Somehow she has got Ihe «-hote idea of Mother's Day confused. To her it is a kind <i( test of her mettle »s a parent. Year after year the kids try to figure out a way to do something special to please her. But it always ends up with mama doing something for us. "Mow this year we are going to take you out to dinner and rele- brate," we tell her. "You never get out of (hat kitchen." "Well, that'll be real nice," says mama. And then she begins to hedge, she points out how much bother It is to go out. She Is sure the restaurants will all be loo crowded on Mother's Day anyway. "I'll tell you what." she says. •I'll fry up a couple of chickens and let's see—I guess we'll have strawberry shortcate for dessert." And she always has her way. Come Mother's Day and she slaves harder than ever over that old hoi t stove. The kids sit in the dinin" P room »nd stuff themselves like harvest hands while Mom brings in plalter after platter of friend chicken. The only help she gets— or would accents a little nssist- «nce later in drying- the dishes. Everybody then sits around gabbing and criticixinR the govern- menl. In the evening the whole family raids the icebox together, and Mom says: "Now, Isn't this better than »o- ing put?" She Is all worn out from overworking on Mother's Day. Bul she has celebrated it in the way she likes best. She has had the family together in the home, and done something for them. Most mothers are happy to, receive gifts of candy and flowers from their children. Not our Mom. 8he gets angry, she thinks that is wasteful. The only thing we can give her is some money, and all she does with the money is io stow; it away in an old sock or something lo leave to her grandchildren. Mom has spent her life doing things for her children, ami she i has never got around to Ihe thought that maybe the children ought to start mothering her. this year she will be H years old. and time and trouble have made her serene. She has no bit- tor young wives today. "They have a |ot more gadgets to help them do their housework " she said. "But somehow I don'l believe they have the feeling of security I had when I married." As Mom and Dad started housekeeping <Th »15 a week, this theory is hard for me lo accept. But she says everybody worked harder nnd felt more secure a generation ago than they do today. And probably she Is right. Mom Is the philosopher in the family, she thinks people must lead their own lives, and that it doesn't do any good to try to lead their lives for them. She gives her advice In an oblique way. I still carry in my wallet a faded newspaper clipping that Mom once mailed to me. She had underlined in ink this sentence: ! 'Child, child, don't you know j there'll be another day?" BI;ii-nr;viLT,B (AMC.) COCTITJW WRTTS Sawyer Says (7.S.
