Mothers and Their Eternal Love

“A mother’s arms are more comforting than anyone else’s.” -Diana, Princess of Wales

Mothers are the glue to a family. Not every family may have a mother, but there may be a mother figure somewhere in their lives. As kids, we don’t realize how much are mothers do for us and they do ALOT! From the small unnoticed things to helping you get ready on your wedding day, they’ll always be there for you. To mothers, you are their greatest gift and they will love you for the rest of your life. The most precious thing a mother will give their child is love. You may not see it when she’s interrogating you about not doing the one thing she told you to do two hours ago, but she still loves you even then.

Mothers will cook for you delicious meals, do your laundry, clean the house, help you with homework, take you shopping, fix your “boo-boos” and “owies,” find the things you can’t find because she knows exactly where everything is, and even buy you unnecessary clothes and toys that you constantly would bug her about getting you. And to think that’s not all they do!

For those of you who may not have your mother with you, for whatever reason it may be, you still have your grandmothers, aunts, family friends and maybe even your next-door neighbors. Mothers are all around us. Just because they aren’t your biological mother, that doesn’t mean they can’t be a mother to you. Of course, genetics is just “icing to the cake.” 

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and although it’s the national day we recognize all the mothers, we shouldn’t need a reason to spoil mothers. My grandfather used to tell me, “everyday should be mother’s day.” For everything mothers do for their families, there isn’t enough “thank you’s” in the world for them and we often take them for granted. It’s sad to think about but one day she won’t be there to help you with your problems. So remember to tell your mothers how much you love and appreciate them, especially the times when you make them mad or when you see that they’re stressed out of their minds; they will forever cherish that!
