Hugging your kids whenever they are are sad or afraid.
Always being there for them, even when you yourself aren't well.
Illnesses are tenderly cared for, no matter the time of day or night.
Laughing with your kids a lot, all the time, for the silliest of reasons.
Mopping up a lot of messes...
And helping them make those messes to begin with.
Realizing for the first time how amazing your own mother is, and finally understanding the sacrifices she made for you.
Yearning for the time when your kids used to nestle quietly in your arms, while feeling proud they have come as far as they have.
Happy Mother's Day to all you Mamas out there... we know how hard you work.
Enjoy your day!
