Mom's Are Awesome

Mom's are awesome, there's no other way to say it. Do you know anyone else that loves you after carrying you around in their body for 9 months? Nope!

I put together a gift guide with some lovely, delicate items perfect for any type of mom or lady in your life. What I really want to talk about today is the amazing things mom's bring to our lives.

Whether you're a mom, an aunt, a daughter, or a stepmom...there's something on this list that we all have experienced at one time or another.

They love us no matter how many times we mess up
You could lie a million times over as a child and make 120 mistakes and they're still waiting to pick you up, brush you off and move on.

Mom's are our biggest fans...any time of the day
After a hard day at work sitting on the sidelines cheering us on the field, at 1 am when we went to the bathroom on the toilet for the first time, or the mid-day phone calls letting us know "You Got This" ....they never put down their pom-pom's.

Your mom always know what's best to say
They know us best. There's those times we just can't hear an "I'm sorry honey"...the right words come out of their mouth and suddenly everything is right in the world again. They know just what to say and when to say it.

A mom never gives up...especially on you
Mom's work hard to provide...whether it's all day at a 9 to 5, or helping bathe, cook, and hold up the house, their work never ends. After a hard day at the job, they are still there to help with homework, teach us how to do our laundry, paint our nails for school pictures or give us the best advice.

My mom taught me to never stop working towards my dream. I remember some of her last coherent days while she sat with me as I applied to college. She  told me that she was so proud of me, and I wasn't sure why I made her so happy sitting  at a table writing an essay. My mom wasn't there the day I got my first acceptance letter, but I can imagine what she was thinking up in heaven. She helped me achieve my goals and I still dream big. I'm pretty sure my mom instilled that way of thinking in me.

My wish for you whether you're a mom, a daughter, or someone who has an amazing role that you get the chance to let them know how much they are loved and appreciated. No bottle of perfume or bouquet of flowers means more to someone than hearing they are treasured.

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Mother's Day!!
