Is it overly optimistic to expect flowers from one's husband on Mother's Day?In this country, paying tribute to mothers is a very big deal – and quite rightly so. Mothers the world over, and indeed anyone who raises and supports children, deserve to be celebrated. If medals were handed out on Mother's Day (parade organizers: take note) then Lebanese mothers should be awarded one for successfully braving and navigating through the numerous and potentially explosive minefields set in the form of society's impossible demands. I marvel at how Lebanese mothers manage to meet all these expectations with grace and a nice disposition.It must be the lovely drawings made by young children and offered on Mother's Day that keep mothers motivated and inspired to do their best.... Flowers?Tanya Dernaika is a communications expert, blogger, wife and mother recently repatriated and enjoying the roller coaster that is life in Beirut.
