As everyone has said I admire any mom. They are sent on to this earth to take care of us. I'm proud of my mom and no one can replace her to me. I strongly support women work force and I encourage the companies to provide as many benefits as poosible during their maternal leave.
Ashish, in a 1950's movie, These Wilder Years,the bartender (who, of course, knows everything) offers a similar sentiment. But the focus there is really on the father who finds out that skipping out on your obligations also deprives you of parental rights.
In the interest of equal treatment, we'll have to have a Father's Day post in appreciation of dads next month. There are fathers who feel they have no obligation to their families beyond bringing home a paycheck (I know one who doesn't even know how to dress his thee year-old son!), and then there are fathers who are really involved in their kids' lives.
First Hats off to all the moms ....mom they really mean lot to everyone and its the best phase for all the women - motherlihood.
next thanks to you AL for posting this message, definitely mom's create a spell on us we feel it especially once they are far away or no more with us. she's is the first teacher for each one of us, for what we are now she s the one completely responsible.
Hi Al, kudos to you and the Moms you mention here. I know a few of them and I, too, am amazed at how they manage their professional and personal commitments. Thanks for taking the time to write a blog to remind us of the people that make up our industry.
That's an excellent post and I'm sure your mom is proud of you. Thanks for shedding some light on the moms who not only do great jobs for their companies, but are doing great jobs in raining their families. Some would say that a working mom is the hardest worker out there, never really a time to relax and always worrying about others before themselves.
First, thank you for a thoughtful and heartfelt post. Your mom and all the other moms at Avnet who are obviously now your support system have all collectively done a great job . Your post sure honors' the terrific work each one has done in your life. Your acknowledgement of all the other mothers is greatly appreciated, belated or not.
Rating your post, I want you to know your mom did a great job with you too!

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
