Some of our most precious memories revolve around our mothers. They are usually our biggest fans. Their love is unconditional. Unless you really screw up, they never give up on you.
Some important facts about mothers: We all have one. No two are alike; they’re as individual as your fingerprint. They tend to be protective and territorial (frequently compared to momma bear). When there is no water available, they will clean your face with their own spit. Some of them really can’t cook. You love them anyway.
Husbands, never say this to your wife: My mother always did that for me. My mother can teach you how to cook (after eating what your wife prepared). My mother (insert anything here).
Folks tend to be protective of their moms. Like a very beefy guy on a bus once said, “You can insult me, but don’t insult my mother––or you die.”
I am thankful to be a mom. I love my sons. I have amazing daughters-in-law. And I love my precious grandchildren. I can be over-the-top silly where they are concerned. And I love Mothers Day, even though I suspect it was created to sell greeting cards, flowers, and whatnot. I love visiting my mom and wish I could spend more time with her. That’s her in the picture with me and my middle son, Matt. You can read a more poignant post about her here. Check out middle son Matt’s amazing website here.
In closing, may your Mother’s Day be blessed, whether you’re a mom or celebrating a mom. And thanks for taking a minute to read my post.

I love my mom. So glad she's still around for me 🙂
I know what you mean, Jennifer. Hope we have lots more Mother's Day celebrations with them.
Lovely post! I'm with you; I suspect it was meant to sell cards and whatnot, but I still like celebrating Mother's Day.
My Mom was my biggest fan. Although she's moved on from this earthly life, her legacy lives on in my two sisters and me, and now, in our daughters and sons as well. 🙂
Thanks for the comment, Karen. Sounds like you had a wonderful mother! My mom is also my biggest fan. I love seeing my parents in our children and grandchildren. It's a beautiful progression.
