WHY I LOVE MOM
   Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, "I'm tired, and it's getting
late. I think I'll go to bed."
She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches.
Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the
following evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container,
put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for brewing
the next morning.
  She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into
the washer, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button She picked up the
game pieces left on the table, put the phone back on the charger and put
the telephone book into the drawer.
She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung up a towel to
dry She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom.
  She stopped by the desk and wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some
cash for the field trip, and pulled a text book out from hiding under the chair.
She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelope
and wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her purse. 
   Mom then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night solution &
age fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed her nails.
   Dad called out, "I thought you were going to bed."
   "I'm on my way," she said.
   She put some water into the dog's dish and put the cat outside, then made
sure the doors were locked and the patio light was on. She looked in on each
of the kids and turned out their bedside lamps and TV's , hung up a shir t, threw
some dirty socks into the hamper, and had a brief conversation with the one up
still doing homework.
   In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next day,
straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her 6 most important
things to do list. She said her prayers, and visualized the accomplishment of her
goals.
   About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in particular.
  "I'm going to bed."
And he did...without another thought.

Someone sent this to me today and I thought it was worth sharing with all of you moms out here on FanIQ. I know I don't go through near the ritual this poor woman does, but some of it applies. I hope all of you have a great mommy day, filled with lots of smiles and wonderful memories!

All you moms - share your favorite thing about being a mom.
Everyone else (and even moms) - share your favorite thing or memory about your mom.

I love how no matter what my moms does, she always does it to benefit me, my sister, my brother, and my dad.  She is an amazing woman, and I would be lost without her.

I love a lot of things, but one of the best things about being a mom of a 5-yr-old is seeing things again for the very first time, and reliving the enthusiasm of new discoveries.

I love that even though I said I never would... I do things just about exactly the way my own mom did. And that I know that no matter what else life throws at me, there are 2 girls out there who love me unconditionally.

I am deeply thankful that I am able to experience the full depth and wonder of how much love the human heart can hold.  I've always believed that a mother's love is the closest thing on earth to God's love for all mankind.  No matter how your child acts, no matter what your child may say, no matter how imperfect your child may seem to the world, they have your unconditional love and nothing can ever change it.  I love that after I had my first child, I could look at my mother with new eyes and have first hand knowledge of the amazing love in her heart.  I love that one day when my daughter holds her child for the first time, that she will look at me with new eyes too.  I love that my children know that no matter what they may face in life...they have someone who loves them unconditionally.

I find myself doing many of the things with my children that I found irritating when my mom did them.  Being a parent is not always easy, but my mom always made sure she did what was best for us.
