What does Mother's Day mean to you? To me, it's spending the day doing anything I want - and having my family cater to my every whim.
Well, that's not what it's like in the real world. Mothers have responsibilities. Meals still need to be prepared, and the house still has to be cleaned, and believe it or not, Mother's still have to be the "Mother" to their children. So what's so special about Mother's Day?
It's one day out of the year that we take time to recognize all that our mothers have done for us. So let's take a moment and reflect. Was your mother there for you when you scraped your knee? Was your mother there for you when you received a good grade in school and wanted to show someone and help celebrate? How about when you had your first crush on a boy - and especially when that same boy broke your heart? I can happily say my mother was there for all of these things.
Growing up, my mother became my friend. Sure, there were those rotten teenage years when I thought I didn't need my parents, but I'm glad I survived without any major scrapes and injuries. Now I can say my mother is a great friend. She's someone who will listen to me when I complain, she's there to give me advice when I need it, and she is especially there to laugh with me. I've noticed we laugh a LOT together. (it must be my old age... lol) We have shared many special memories!
But I want to tell my mom - I LOVE YOU! And THANK YOU Mom for being a wonderful Mother and a great example!!!
