Happy Mother’s Day!

The longer I live the more I appreciate my mother. As a wife and mother, there have been times when I felt underappreciated, taken for granted, and felt like I’m just the fix it and clean it up person. Yeah I know, right now some of you are probably thinking… “Welcome to my world.” It’s during some of those times when I felt the most frustrated that a little voice in my head would say “This is probably how mom felt. Wow! She never let on. She did everything without complaining.” Just having that thought prevents me from having a pity party, and it is moments like that that make me appreciate her all the more. I am truly amazed by my mother. Maybe it takes being a mom to really recognize and appreciate the many, many, many things our mothers did (and maybe even still do) for us. So for mom’s everywhere, these videos are especially for your viewing pleasure:

Happy Mother’s Day!

Last year I came up with 25 Things My Mother Taught Me. This year I actually found a poem someone else wrote on things their mother taught them. I think we can all relate to a thing or two on this list.

Things My Mother Taught Me

My Mother taught me LOGIC…

“If you fall off that swing and break your neck, you can’t go to the store with me.”

My Mother taught me MEDICINE…

“If you don’t stop crossing your eyes, they’re going to freeze that way.”

My Mother taught me TO THINK AHEAD…

“If you don’t pass your spelling test, you’ll never get a good job!”

My Mother taught me ESP…

“Put your sweater on; don’t you think that I know when you’re cold?”

My Mother taught me TO MEET A CHALLENGE…

“What were you thinking? Answer me when I talk to you…Don’t talk back to me!”

My Mother taught me HUMOR…

“When that lawn mower cuts off your toes, don’t come running to me.”

My Mother taught me how to BECOME AN ADULT…

“If you don’t eat your vegetables, you’ll never grow up.

My mother taught me ABOUT SEX…

“How do you think you got here?”

My mother taught me about GENETICS…

“You are just like your father!”

My mother taught me about my ROOTS…

“Do you think you were born in a barn?”

My mother taught me about the WISDOM of AGE…

“When you get to be my age, you will understand.”

My mother taught me about ANTICIPATION…

“Just wait until your father gets home.”

My mother taught me about RECEIVING…

You are going to get it when we get home.

And my all time favorite thing-JUSTICE

“One day you will have kids, and I hope they turn out just like YOU..then you’ll see what it’s like.”

And she thought no one was listening.

Have you ever taken the time to just stop and think about the things your mother has taught you?

On Mother’s Day many people take the time to express how great their mothers are and how much they love them. I happen to feel the same way about mine — but not everyone thinks their mom is the greatest. Regardless of whether your feelings are positive or negative towards your mother, I’m sure she taught you lifeskills and things about life. In honor of my mother, here is a list of some of the things my mother has taught me:

1 – How to love – showing others you love them through your actions

2 – Be quiet and listen to others

3 – Patience with others

4 – Acceptance – how to let others be who they are

5 – Kindness – be kind to others

6 – Manners

7 – Be helpful

8 – Be supportive of others

9 – Be independent – be able to support yourself financially

10 – How to be a wife

11 – How to care for others

12 – How to put others needs first

13 – How to live a balanced life – there’s a time for work and a time for play

14 – How not to cry over spilt milk – move on, life goes on

15 – How to be angry and still do what needs to be done, or what is expected

16 – How to shop

17 – How to cook; How to cook balanced meals

18 – How to entertain – how to make others feel welcome in your home

19 – How to do what needs to be done without waiting for someone else to do it

20 – How to give good gifts – give gifts designed with the person (recipient) in mind

21 – You mess it up, you clean it up – everyone needs to pick up after themselves

22 – Communication – remain calm and talk it out, no need to shout

23 – How to work together, how to work as a team in a relationship

24 – Broaden your horizons

25 – You are responsible for your own happiness

So, in honor of your mother, please take a few minutes and think – What are some things your mother has taught you?
