Mother’s Day is a special day where mothers all around the world are recognized and celebrated. The celebration takes many forms from house to house, and country to country, but for the most part it is a day where mothers get the chance to put their feet up and be well and truly spoiled!
I just came from visiting my dear mom who is now 86 and so bent over and almost blind. She is still trying to be so independent and wishes she could be years younger. It is an honor to be able to take care of her as she ages.
I have learned so much from her in her later years and she is a Wonderful Mother. Tell your MOM this year how much she means to you.
If you wrote your mother a message… Would she be able to find it?
Top reasons to celebrate Mom this Mother’s Day.
She wore your macaroni necklaces with pride to work, the grocery store and the mall.
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 willingly baked five dozen cupcakes for the bake sale you “volunteered” her for, and which you told her about at 8pm the night before.
She is a human calendar, keeping track of every doctor appointment, birthday, anniversary, parent-teacher conference, field trip, play date, spelling bee contest, lesson, team practice, first word or bowel movement anyone in the family has ever had.
She put up with your “self-expression” years whereby you dyed your hair, pierced body parts, tattooed strange things upon your skin, wore strange clothing and makeup, and used the word “righteous” ad nauseam.
She sacrificed going back to work just so she’d have time to be your Girl Scout Leader, PTA president, field trip chaperone, and chauffeur to every sporting event or karate lesson you ever took.
Even when you were too upset to verbalize what was bothering you, she always knew exactly what was wrong based on the volume and urgency of your heavy sobs or the amount of boogers that ran from your nose.
She loved you even when you flushed her earrings down the toilet, set the living room rug on fire, practiced writing your letters in red marker on the living room couch, or used the contents of your diaper for wall art.
She has spent the majority of her adult years in two places: the kitchen and the laundry room.
She has never had a 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.
