10 REASONS WHY MOTHERS ARE THE BEST
If you were to ask your friends who their inspiration is, you are going to get a lot of them saying it is their mother. Mother's definitely play a huge part in our lives. They are the one's who brought us into this world and also see us through all the unforgiving calamities that life has to throw at us.But, we take them for granted at times and we forget to show them how much we appreciate them. If you still have no clue as to why you should give thanks to your mom.
Here are the 10 things you can start with. So, go on! Give your mom a huge hug after reading this and give thanks!
1. FOR GIVING BIRTH TO US
You will never know what it is like to carry someone for nine months, or what your mother went through before she gave birth to you.....unless you become one yourself. So for all those who will never know the pain of having go through nine hours of labour, thank your mom for that.
2. FOR PUSHING YOU TO BE THE VERY BEST
Mother's constantly encourage you to break barrier and to be extraordinary. They believe in you whole heatedly and they know you are capable of achieving greater things. They never fail to make you feel you are super special, even if sometimes you doubt whether that is the case. In her eyes, you are the superstar and she will never stop pushing you until you believe you are one.
3. FOR COOKING YOUR FAVOURITE MEALS
Nothing beats home cooked food especially if it is your favourite dish. If you could remember, most of you when you were still a kid, your mom want you to eat your favourite food, she gets the ingredients from the market to chopping vegetables and risking getting scalded by the piping hot oil. By the time she was done, she will be completely exhausted. I have no idea how mother's manage to do it every single day without complaining. On top of that, they still wash the dishes, wash and iron your clothes and do everything else. Superwoman indeed!
4. FOR KILLING THE COCKROACH FOR YOU
How many of you have screamed when there is a cockroach in your bathroom or bedroom? I have, countless times. Like a hero, my mom will come running in with a shieldtox or a slippers to fend off the pest
5. FOR TOLERATING ALL YOUR DIFFERENT PHASES IN LIFE
They loved us as an innocent child and they love us during our akward teenage phase. They loved us when we were rebels and they will love us at times and vice versa. You know that they will always be there for you, they are the ones who have tolerated us since birth and they correct our mistakes.
6. FOR ALL THE SUPPORTS SHE HAS GIVEN
Mother's are undoubtedly our biggest supporters and our number one fans. They will be there to cheer us up when we win and comfort us when we don't. No matter what, they will always be there by our side even when we push them away, they will still be lingering near us, ready to jump in when we need a shoulder to cry on other that extra helping hands
7. FOR ALL THE SACRIFICES SHE MADE
We never truly know all the sacrifices that our mother's have made just to keep us going. Like that day when she had to take no - pay leave so she could take you to the doctor or attend your graduation or that time when she risked being scolded by her husband because she was too busy defending you. Mother's sacrifices a lot for their children, your mom has sacrificed so much for you, I think they deserve at least a thank you for that.
8. FOR FORCING YOU TO STUDY
Common admit it. If your mom didn't nag at you to do your homework or scold you for failing your exam, you would not be where you are today. When you are still a teenager, you will think your mom is forcing you to study but when you grow older, you realised that without the constant scoldings, you would probably have procrastinated and not graduated at all.
9. FOR LOVING YOU
A mother loves unconditionally, that's a fact. Our joy is their joy, our sadness is their grieve. There is nothing like a mother's love for her child. To quote, " A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all the things and crushes down remorselessly all the stand in it's path". There is nothing like knowing your mother still loves you despite all that you have done to her. It is nice to know that at least someone cares
10. FOR BEING PATIENT WITH YOU
Mother's have such a high level of patience, it is unbelievable when we do something wrong and they will be there to guide us on the right path. They may scold you at times but at the end of the day, they meant well. From those times, they have always put up with our antics especially with how we don't bother cleaning our room every single day.
TIME TO BE THANKFUL
So there you have it, 10 things you should thank your mom for! This list is definitely not exhaustive and I am sure there are loads of other reasons. You should thank your mom, she has done so much for us, the least we should do is to remind them that we appreciate them.
