16 Reasons Why I’m Grateful for My Mom, and Why You Should Be Too!

“A mother’s love is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, it never fails or falters, even though the heart is breaking.” – Helen Steiner Rice

It may be a cliché to say that nothing could ever replace a mother’s tender touch. Tough on the outside but soft on the inside, there is no one in this world like her. And even if you grow up and eventually neglect the fact that she would always be there for you, her love for you has and will always be unconditional. No matter how out-of-this-world irritating your mom is, you got to admit that she’s a one-of-a-kind gem. Whether you’re the high flier or the black sheep in the family, one thing is for sure—your mom can and will never abandon you. Hence, it is just right to give our wonder woman a double tap on the shoulders, right? So the next time you see your mom, try remembering these often forgotten things:

1. Do you think your mom is a superwoman? Well, I do to! With all the roles she plays in your life, it is quite amazing how a single person can be more than what she can be just for you—a guidance counselor, a preacher, a hair stylist, a make-up artist, a designer, a cook, a gardener, a nurse, a defendant, a finance and most importantly, a friend and a confidant. If you think she doesn’t deserve a cape for this one, think again!

All the times she had to double as best friend/counselor/therapist/costume designer/hair stylist/coach/all-around-solver-of-every-problem-ever.
Do you think your mom is a superwoman?

2. Remember those moments when you were drunk and you scared the hell out of her because you forgot to call? Yeah, she did forgive you for being a real bitch back then!

Forgiving us when we forget to call.

3. So, you got fired and your fiance ditched you for somebody else. Remember who listened to all of your endless dramas? Yeah, I thought so!

Listening to all our pointless dramas when we do remember.
So, you got fired and your fiance ditched you for somebody else.
