HAPPY MOTHER’s DAY to all MOMS out there. Over the years, I have met some pretty darn amazing MOMS!
All MOMS have something in common, and they want nothing but the best for their children! Moms would do everything possible to ensure their children are cared for and ensure they do not go without anything.
To the MOM who is always POSITIVE, I admire you because of your positive outlook on life and want to be an example for your children. The first day I meet this Mom, she was power walking, trying not to be late to work all while smiling. She was a college student, working two jobs, and recently separated/divorced. This MOM was studying to be a physical therapist, and it came with a workload of exams and practicums. I have seen this Mom worried and stressed, but she always kept a positive outlook on things, and she knew how to make the best of any situation. She was always on the go, but no matter what, she made sure she was there for her kids. Her relationship with them is lovely. She knew they were watching her, and she wanted to be the best example she could be.
To the MOM I have known my entire life, I admire you because of your ability to do whatever it takes to make sure your children do not go without anything. This Mom went from a working mom to a stay-at-home mom. She’s always there to support her children in their extracurricular activities and school work. This MOM has a house full, but she keeps things going.
To the MOM of three boys, I admire you because of the fun and loving relationship you have with your children. This Mom honestly puts her boys first. I am constantly telling her that she is a great Mom regardless of how she may feel at the time. She works a full-time job and still manages to make time for her boys. She ensures her work schedule is not too hectic, so she can attend sporting events, cub-scout events, field trips, senior night events, take her boys out to dinner, or just spend time at home playing games and cooking together. She has such a loving heart and would do anything not only for her boys but for anyone she cares deeply for.
To the MOM who has nothing but SWEET EXPRESSIONS! She made it through college as a single mom, and she is still grinding! She has an entrepreneur mindset, and she is all about empowerment. She ensures that whatever she is doing is best for her son. She is a busy Mom, but she makes time for her son by taking him on dates, staying involved in his schooling, and just talking to him about his day.
To the MOM who is Selfless, I admire you for your selfless act. This Mom made changes in her life to take care of her daughter and her granddaughter. This Mom’s youngest daughter became ill some years ago, and her mom instincts kicked in to ensure she did what was best for her daughter. She moved in with her daughter and granddaughter to ensure they had the proper help. This Mom had to make some personal life changes along this journey, but she continues to push forward.
To the MOM who raised me, I admire you for just being my Mom. Even as a grown adult, I find myself needing my Mom. Sometimes she tells me no, and sometimes she tells me, yes, but regardless of her responses, I know she means well. I have grown into the person I am today because of my MOM, and I appreciate and thank her for her care and support.
There are so many great MOMs, and I can’t name or list them all! Happy Mother’s Day to every MOM out there! Know that you are appreciated and loved by your kids because NO MATTER how old one may get, they will always need their MOM.
