Moms really are what make the world go round. They give us life, love us, and send us out into the world, always ready to be there for us at a moment’s notice. A mother’s job certainly doesn’t end when her child grows up. The job just evolves.
I spent my early childhood trying to emulate my mom and then as a teenager, I was always trying to escape her. Obviously during those tumultuous teenage years, I knew everything and didn’t need to listen to the archaic advice from my mother. Surely my friends were better judges of life than my mom. (I laugh at the thought now) These days, I can look back fondly at the lessons she taught me, spoken and unspoken, when she thought I wasn’t even paying attention.
I can almost hear the unified sigh from all of us who wish we’d given our mother’s more credit for the advice they were trying to freely give. So, what is the best lesson your mom taught you? Post a comment below and share the best advice or most valuable lesson that you learned from your mom and you’ll be entered in GiftTree’s Mother’s Day contest.
