Before I go on with this post, let’s just take a moment to appreciate and acknowledge everything our mothers have done for us since the day we were born.
Alright, now since you’ve reflected on the subject, I figured I should share my top reasons why you should celebrate mom this Mother’s Day.
So without further ado, here are my Top 8 Reasons to Celebrate Mom on Mother’s Day:
She willingly baked four dozen chocolate chip cookies for the bake sale you “volunteered” her for, and which you told her about at 9 pm the night before.
She is a human calendar, keeping track of all your doctor appointments, play dates, lessons, practice, parent-teacher conference, and all the silliness you applied for.
She had a knack for finding missing objects such as your blankie, pet frog, retainer, lucky marble, homework, or belly button lint collection. Unfortunately, she is still looking for the remnants of her mind, memory, and body that once fit into size 4 jeans.
She tirelessly drove you at two different places at once when you suddenly needed her to do so.
She had to put up with your constant bickering and childish behavior in the house.
She prepared your everyday meals and always left a lovely note in your lunchbox in your toddler years.
She was there for you when you were sick and for the days in which you needed her the most.
She has never had a true vacation, comp time, sick day or other “break” from motherhood, and even if she were given the opportunity for one, probably would never take one.
Remember to thank your Mom on Mother’s Day. There is no love that goes deeper or which transcends time and space more than a mother’s love. A mom is the pillar and rock of their child’s life, and know that their love for you is infinite.
Wishing all the mothers a happy Mother’s Day!
