Moms…because not all superhero’s wear capes.
Sometimes the two little words, “Thank you” seem infinitely small in comparison to the greatness that is a Mother’s love and the epic lengths they go for us to make us happy and healthy.
Moms; they allowed you to grow inside her. She trained you to eat, drink, go potty, get dressed, brush your teeth, comb your hair, everything you need to be a properly functioning human being.
She sacrificed so you could smile. She drove you to ball fields, practices, lessons, birthday parties, went to recitals and games. She stayed up way past her bedtime baking cupcakes for your birthday at school. She didn’t let you have cake for dinner; even if she thought it was a good idea because she had no energy to make you nutritious meal, she stepped right up to the stove and did it anyway.
She went without so you didn’t have too. She held her breath, gripped with fear as she let you go out on your own.
She always left the door and her heart open for to always return, she is Mom.
In honor of Her today, I put together a ‘Mom Song Playlist’ dedicated to all the Mothers of every category (and of course the Dad’s pulling double duty) as tribute to this wonderful being we wouldn’t be here without.
Natalie Merchant – Kind and Generous
Good Charlotte – Thank You Mom
Justin Bieber – Turn To You
Taylor Swift – Best Day
Boyz II Men – Song For Mama
Hope you enjoyed it! I was balling my eyes out all morning (yeah, I’m a total sap and Mama’s girl).
Don’t forget to let the person who was your Mother figure know how immeasurably much you love them, not just today, on the regular 😀
