don't give up on us
don't need our mom to be perfect; we just need her to be our best
I would like to extend sincere gratitude and appreciation to every
mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, adoptive mom and
every woman who has taken on the role of nurturing lives! As a daughter,
I am beyond thankful to have a mom who loves, believes in and cares
about my siblings and myself. I really donít want to know where we
would be without our mom. As a granddaughter and a niece, I deeply
appreciate the love my grandmas and aunts have given without
after day, moms are called to a higher standard of selfless love for
their families ó of giving their time, energy and effort to help
others live a better life. Moms face a lifetime of responsibility to set
an example for those little eyes watching them, those little ears
listening to them. Itís 24/7, 365 days a year, no turning back.
should know that whether their kids are still living with them and
depending daily on them, or are grown up and have moved away, maybe
having children of their own, your love matters so much. Momsí words,
time and efforts matter. Sometimes they haven't gotten our thanks or
appreciation, sometimes theyíve gotten a nasty response (especially in
our teenage years).
donít need our mom to be perfect; we just need her to be our best
cheerleader, our greatest encourager, our forehead-kissing superhero,
our truth-teller, the person who teaches us, loves us and believes in
us, no matter our flaws.
donít give up on us!
cannot wait to have the honor and privilege of being a mom; I am so
proud of the woman my mom is.
