There is a relationship with your mother that resembles no other. A lot of people think it’s because your mother gave birth to you, but that’s only one part of it. Even though the message is finally catching on, I still feel like mothers are still underappreciated. We don’t recognize all the amazing things that they do for us. From day one, our mothers protect us with their life. After a while, we forget that feeling. We don’t realize how much strength it takes for someone to protect something with all their heart, for years and years to come. A mother will wake up from her five-hour sleep and one of the first things that will pop up in her morning thoughts is you. And those morning thoughts linger for years. A mother will relate anything and everything to you. She’ll find something and it will instantly remind you of her. A mother will give you a part of her head reserved for only thoughts of you, and all her heart for your loving, and will spread her arms open wide when you come running to her. All the mothers in the world are incredibly extraordinary and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Thank you, mom.
