Mother's Day

My mother used to say: I carried you 9 months inside me!
Here in Mozambique, mothers could say: I carried you 9 months inside me and 3 years on my back!
Here in Mozambique, there is no license to rest for young mothers. From the sunrise to the sunset, they carry their babys all over the place. They go to get water and wood, they buy and they sell, they even work on the farm, and cook. Always in their child on the back.
I wonder if one day these man and woman would understand the sacrifice their mothers went through.
