you heard of car maintenance for sure, but what about mother’s maintinance ?
Many of us take better care of our cars than we do our mothers and yet, we only expect our care to last 5 – 6 years, but we expect our mothers to last a lifetime. Maybe we need a maintenance manual for mothers so we would know how to take care of them at least as we do our automobiles.
Here are some items that might be included in such a manual:
ENGINE: A mother’s engine is one of the most dependable kinds you can find. She can reach top speed from a prone position at a single cry from a sleeping child. But regular breaks are needed to keep up that peak performance. Mothers need a hot bath and a nap every 100 miles, a baby-sitter and a night out every 1,000 miles and a live-in baby-sitter with one week vocation every 10,000 miles.
BATTERY: Mother’s batteries should be recharged regularly. Handmade items, notes, unexpected hugs and kisses, and frequent “I love you’s” will do very well for a quick recharge.
WINDSHIELD: When a mother’s windshield floods, it should be dried of gently with Kleenex while resting on the soft shoulder of the highway of life.
BRAKES: See that she uses her brakes to slow down often and come to a full stop occasionally. (A squeaking sound indicates a need for a rest.)
FUEL: Most mothers can run indefinitely on coffee, left over and salads, but an occasional dinner for two at a nice restaurant will really add to her efficiency.
CHASSIS: Mothers run best when their bodies are properly maintained. Regular exercise should be encouraged and provided for as necessary. A change in hairdo or makeup in spring or fall are also helpful. If you notice the chassis began to sag, immediately start a program of walking, jogging, swimming or bike riding. These are most effective when done with family or friends.
TUNE-UPS: Mothers need regular tune-ups. Compliments are both the cheapest and most effective ways to keep mothers purring contentedly.
If these instructions are followed consistently, this fantastic creation and gift from God, that we call MOTHER, should last a lifetime and give good service and constant love to those who need her most.
