10 Reasons To Appreciate Your Mother (Even After Mother’s Day)

My mother used to say “There is no one in this world like your mother.” As I got older, I agree with this wholeheartedly.
While Mother’s Day is a wonderful time to appreciate and embrace your mother, it should not be the only time. No matter how close or distant you are to your mother, at least one of these reason will resonate with you. Here are 10 reasons why your mother rocks.
1. She literally “gives you life”
Ok. Simple biology. Every human being came from a woman. That woman carried you in her womb for nine months. She consciously made the effort to give birth to you. She went through a journey to bring you into the world. No matter how annoying or awful you may think your mother is, for that reason alone, you should appreciate her.
2. You can count on her for advice
Have you ever heard of the saying “Mother knows best.” In most cases, this saying is correct. Your mother has been living on this earth significantly longer than you. She has accumulated a wealth of wisdom and knowledge that she just wants to pass down to you. Every now and then, take heed to what she is saying.
3. She will protect you
You may be to old for her to scare away the “monsters” under your bed. You may be to old for her to kiss your boo-boos. But that doesn’t stop her from defending your honor and pride. A mother will almost always be there to try to help you out of dangerous and compromising situations. If someone is talking bad about you, you better believe that the mama bear instincts inside of her, will protect you from their hurtful words.
4. She is literally super woman
Have you ever wondered how some moms are able to wake up at the crack of dawn, prepare breakfast, take you to school, go to work, come home, cook, clean, and have dinner ready before you know it? Let me tell you, it’s the super woman in her. Mothers seem to possess an instinctive supernatural power that allows them to multitask, and be everyone’s personal helper and guide. It’s quite an amazing feat.
5. She knows you better than…you
Maybe it was the nine months of bonding in the womb, or the fact that she raised you, but sometimes it seems that your mother knows you from the inside out. Your mother can tell when you are sad, angry, confused, or genuinely happy. She can call you out on your bluff. For some, this can be irritating. But, sometimes you need that extra push to reveal your true emotions.
6. She gave you your values
Mama didn’t raise no fool. The home training, manners, and etiquette that you learned from your mother are apart of what makes you who you are. Be grateful that your mother told you to say please and thank you. It shows that you were not “raised in a barn.”
7. She is a shoulder to cry on
Bad breakup? Call your mom. Failed an exam? Call your mom? Lost your job? Call your mom. I could go on and on with various scenarios where your mother’s support is necessary. It is her maternal instinct, to fix your discomfort and negative emotions. I can almost guarantee that she wants to know what is wrong, so she can give you support.
8. She wants the best for you
Mothers want to see their children succeed in life. They give you the support you need and will push you for excellence. All they really want to say in life is “That’s my baby,” when they see you doing something good.
9. She gives you the tough love
Leave it to your mother to tell you how it is. At the moment, the truth might burn. However, know that it is for the best.
