Today we get to think about our Moms. We get a whole twenty four hours to sit back and think of how wonderful a good mom truly is. We can even try to ponder what it would be like to have a different Mom if we want to. I’ve tired to do this. I actually have in the past. It was easier when I was a kid in trouble and unable to watch Duck Tales or Batman The Animated Series but not so much now.
When I sit back and think about it, who I am, what I’ve been able to accomplish it all goes back to Mom. I wouldn’t be the man or father I am today if she wasn’t there.
If she wasn’t a genius I’d never be smart. If she never forgave me I wouldn’t know how to forgive. If she had never shown me love, kindness, fairness & compassion I’d have no clue how to treat others. If she had actually been consumed with looks and material possessions I might be living an empty life. If she had been any different these words that I’ve written would be too.
So today when I think of my Mom & all that she does and continues to do for me I also like to remember a simple fact:
If it wasn’t for her selflessness and courage, her wit and humour, her life experience and wisdom I wouldn’t be me.
The same goes for you as well dear reader. Sit and think about it. Think about your own Mom and how wonderful she is. Feels good right? Sadly tho, your Mom can’t be the best Mom. If that were true we’d be siblings.
Happy Mother’s day.
