Retirement Resources President and Investment Advisor, Dave Boike talks about the joys and sorrows that accompany both the conventional and unconventional roles of motherhood and celebrates them all this Mother’s Day.
Auburn Hills, MI — May 31, 2019— Dave Boike, President of Retirement Resources and co-author of The Ultimate Success Guide with Brian Tracy, published a new article on the company website entitled, “Revering The Art And Every Act Of Mothering.” Mr. Boike is of the opinion that no man can fully comprehend the role of motherhood.
Boike states, “As a man, I will never know what it’s like to give birth to and mother a child.” He goes on to write, “As a father, I am humbled in the face of what my wife did to carry and give birth to our children, what she has done through the years and continues to do to create, cultivate and maintain the coherence of our extraordinarily loving family. And,” he adds, “when I think of my mother, I too am deeply grateful and humbled in the face of her strength.”
“As Mother’s Day comes around this year,” says Boike, “I feel so blessed that our family is healthy and truly loving.” He doesn’t stop there though. He adds, “However, I am well aware that not every mother’s life is filled with so much love and joy. I am also aware that whether a woman has actually given birth to her child or not, all women intuitively know how to mother.”
Boike says, “I recently came across an article at the Mom’s Choice Award website that mentions blogger, Lisa Jo Baker’s acknowledgment that, “all of us are called to mother one another.” https://www.momschoiceawards.com/blog/when-mothers-day-is-hard/ I have a feeling she means all women and not necessarily men. Though she doesn’t say anything that would exclude us!”
As Boike points out, “I’ve known plenty of men who’ve had to step into the dual role of mother and father as a result of death or divorce. I also know there are many men who valiantly take on the motherhood role in today’s diverse families.”
