Who is your biggest cheerleader? Without a doubt I can say my Mom is mine. There are times when I don’t think I tell my Mom enough – how much she means to me, how I wouldn’t be where I am today without her, how even when she is annoying me, I still love her most. There is A LOT I forget to tell my Mom and thank her for in life. Today, on her birthday, I’m sharing five things you probably forgot to tell your Mom too.
Thank you Mom for finding things I have lost.
From toys to my car keys to my mind, my Mom has helped me find more things I’ve lost than I can count. Why is it that Mom’s always remember everything?
Thank you Mom for listening to me vent.
If I had a penny for every minute my Mom has spent listening to my vent about something completely irrational and ridiculous, I’d be rich. She has the patience of a saint.
Thank you Mom for being protective.
I wholeheartedly believe in the nickname “Mama Bear” as the way to describe most of the Mothers in this world. Females (all walks of life, animals included) are born with an instinct to protect their young, even if she didn’t birth the child herself. My Mom is protective of all the people she loves and has taught me to be the same way.
Thank you Mom for keeping my secrets.
There is a chance my Mom knows more than anyone else on this Earth. I’ve confided in her about a lot and she has also kept some of my worst confessions. When I was growing up she probably should have told my Dad a lot more than she did… which I must thank her for! Moms are the best secret keepers.
Thank you for showing me unconditional love.
We have all done it – taken our anger out on Mom when she doesn’t deserve it. I’ve displaced a lot of emotion on her when I can’t actually tell whomever I’m mad at how I feel. My Mom takes it too – and usually calms me down. Thank you for not judging me when I’ve said awful things, for not turning me away when I’m mad at the world, and for showing me unconditional love even if I’m a brat towards you.
