RELIGION: Tell Mom how much you appreciate her

by James "Skip" French | May 12, 2021 at 5:19 a.m.

Well Mother's Day is upon us.

Are you wondering what mom should be paid for her work as mom? has valuated the "mom job" of both the working and stay-at-home moms! Based on a survey of over 6,500 mothers, determined that the time mothers spend performing 10 typical job functions would equate to an annual salary of $115,432 for a stay-at-home mom. Working moms 'at-home' salary would be $63,472; this is in addition to the salary they earn in the workplace.

The job titles that best matched a mom's definition of her work are (in order of hours spent per week): housekeeper, daycare center teacher, cook, computer operator, facilities manager, van driver, psychologist, laundry machine operator, janitor and chief executive officer.

If you can tell your mom face-to-face, be sure and let her know how much you appreciate her and all she did for you. If your mom is not still in the world today, say a prayer to the Good Lord above and thank Him for blessing you with a good mom.
