10 Reasons to Thank Your Mom This Mother’s Day

1) For All the Sacrifices She Made

Being a mom is one of the greatest gifts in the world, but it’s not without its sacrifices. In order to be a good mom, you need to make changes in your life, from the career path you want to your daily schedule. This Mother’s Day, thank your mom for all of the sacrifices she made in her own life to ensure that you had a wonderful life of your own.

2) For Putting Up With You

It’s not until later in life that we all look back and realize how much of a monster we were to our parents — for some, this realization doesn’t hit until they have kids of their own. Whether it was screaming at the top of your lungs over something insignificant or yelling and slamming your door as a teen, there are many times in your life when you were a less-than-perfect child. Yet, through all of the bad times, your mom was there for you, even if she wasn’t very happy.

3) For All the Rides

Children often take for granted the number of times their parents act as chauffeur. Growing up, you most likely had a busier social calendar than your parents, but they were always there to give you a ride to and from school, to friends’ houses, to soccer practice, and so many other places — sometimes multiple times a day. Going to so many different places in one day is no easy task, yet, your mom was always there to pick you up with a smile and a snack.

4) For Being There No Matter What Time It Is

Being a parent is an around-the-clock job, and we often forget that because our parents, especially our moms, do it with such grace. This Mother’s Day, thank your mom for all the times she picked up your urgent call at 2 a.m. or came into your room when you had a bad dream. It didn’t matter how much trouble you were in or what time it was, you could always count on your mom to be there for your no matter what.

5) For Being Your Cheerleader

Moms play many different roles in your life, but one of the most important roles they play is the cheerleader. Whether you’re acting in a play, giving a speech, or playing a sport, your mom is always there to support you and cheer you on. When you win, she’s there with a hug and a congratulations, and even when you lose, she’s still there to tell you that you did your best.

6) For Cleaning Up Your Messes

There are many different types of messes, both physical and situational, and your mother is always there to help you clean them up. If you spill milk while you’re at the table, or you accidentally break a toy, your mom is there with a towel and super glue to make everything better. If you get caught cheating on a test, or you accidentally hit something with your car, you can count on your mom to help you out of a sticky situation.

7) For Providing You With Everything You Need

It’s no secret that children need countless objects to keep them happy, clothed, and well-equipped to succeed in life. Unable to fund or buy the objects yourself, the job of supplying these things falls on your mom, and she does so without a second thought. Without her, you wouldn’t have the new school supplies you need each year, the clothes on your back, or the food on your plate. Even if it means sacrificing for herself, she makes sure that you are provided with everything you need throughout your life.

8) For Giving You Tough Love When You Need It

Being a parent is about more than just unconditional love and support; there comes a time when children need to make their own mistakes so that they can learn. At the time, you may not like the tough love treatment from your mom, but once you learn the lesson, you will come to appreciate her actions. Unfortunately, we often forget to thank our mothers for the lessons we learned through acts of tough love. This Mother’s Day, make it a point to thank your mom for giving you the chance to make your own mistakes, even if it was difficult to understand her goals at the time.

9) For Being a Shoulder to Cry On

Life is hard, and as much as you try to be strong, sometimes it’s best to cry and let all of your feelings out. At times like this, some want to work through their problems alone, while others need comfort to feel better. Regardless of how you choose to overcome the challenges life gives you, you can always count on your mom to be there with a hug and a kind word. She is always there for you, even if all you need is a shoulder to cry on.

10) For Giving You Life

There are countless reasons you should thank your mom this Mother’s Day, but the number one reason she deserves your thanks is because she gave you life. Without your mom, you wouldn’t exist, and she went through a lot to make sure that you had the best life that you could have. If nothing else, give your mom a hug this Mother’s Day, and thank her for being your mom and giving you such a wonderful life.
