Mothers are the hardest working people in the world. There are no lunch breaks, no clocking out and the pay sucks. But we are the most important people in our children’s lives and no one can take our place.
My mother is amazing, (EXHIBIT A) I am beyond thankful for everything she’s done and continues to do for me and my children. Out of all the things I’ve learned from her there are two lessons that have carried me through every storm in my life.
1. Love is always the answer. I know it sounds cheesy and kumbaya-ish, but in every situation in your life, you choose to love the people around you (no matter what) YOUR life will be immeasurably better.
2. You might as well laugh. I can’t count, on all my fingers and toes, the number of times I have laughed with my mother until we cried, our bellies ached and one (or both) of us had to run to the restroom to keep from peeing our pants. My Momma’s not perfect and neither am I, but moments like those make up for all the little bumps in the road.
What did you learn from your mother that you hope to pass on to your children?
