Thank You Mom!

Today is Mother’s Day! This whole week we have focused on all things motherhood with our little ones, but we thought it would be nice to talk about our amazing mothers!

Emily:

If there’s one person that I am most thankful for it’s my mom.  She is always there for me, whether I call because I’m sick, or something more serious.  There are no questions asked.  I joke with her that she makes the “grandchildren circuit” visiting us, my sister in NYC and then my sister in Virginia, but she is a lifesaver.  Baby is sick and need a last minute babysitter? Call mom.  Daycare is closed for a week and I can’t take the week off of work? Call mom.  Need a pedicure and just need to get out of the house? Call mom.  Even though my parents moved to Buffalo last year, my relationship with my mom has only gotten stronger.  I talk to her at least twice a day (on a busy day) and wouldn’t have it any other way! I can’t imagine not having her around just to talk to, get advice from, and just spend time with.  Particularly with Mike being gone, my mom has been my rock, my other hand, my sounding board, my shoulder to cry on, my everything. The only thing that I think is better than having my mom as my mom, is Madeline getting to have her as her Grandma.  Maybe it’s because she raised three girls, but my mom gets Madeline laughing, she soothes her, and she is the best playmate (just ask my niece and nephew who keep her locked in their rooms with them for hours!).  I tend to think it’s because she’s just such a genuinely nice and caring person.  My mom is the best role model, and I really hope that I’m half the mom to Madeline that she is to my sisters and I!  Thank you Mom, for always being there for me! I know I call in quite a few favors, but you never say no and I really appreciate that. I love you, Happy Mother’s Day!

Sherrie: 

My best friend in this whole world would be my mom. She is truly one of a kind. She is not just my mom though – she is everyone’s mom! I always say she is basically everyone’s second mother. She will take the shirt off her back for anyone in need especially her 3 kids. I can count on her for anything at anytime, no matter the circumstance. I can’t think of anyone I talk to more than my mom. My morning, afternoon nor evening feels right unless I talk to her on the phone. I even call her throughout the day when she’s at my house watching Logan. Did I mention she travels 3 hours one way to watch Logan 4 days a week?! While she is there she also helps us out with cleaning and cooking. She is truly a rock star! I know the day she became a grandma was one of the best days of her life. Seeing her love Logan melts my heart! She’s now not only the best mom but the best grandma ever!!! Now that I am a mom I can understand the unconditional love you have for a child so I know how much she really loves all of her kids and Logan. Mom, you’re my best friend and I would be lost without you. You’re always there for me and can’t thank you enough for all you do – which is like a million things each week! Logan, Matt and I love you past the moon and the stars! Happy Mother’s Day!

To all the moms out there – Happy Mother’s Day from us at Forever Young Moms! We hope you take the time you deserve today to doing something nice for yourself. Enjoy!

Sherrie & Emily

    This is so sweet! I’ve heard 1000 times that you don’t appreciate your mom until you are one yourself. It is true! My mom has been the best support for my family. 🙂

    I love this! I always envy relationships like these. Growing up not having a mom or being an adult now and not having that comforting, nurturing, unconditional love to see you through even with just the smallest gesture or a hello from her that would make every bit of terrible seem so easy to conquer. Thank you for sharing this! It’s beautiful, to have this kind of love in this life time. While I may not have had it, or ever get in this life time.. I’m certain that I’m every bit of the mom, I hope and more for my kids. I love them with all of me, and to love them so sincerely in my own way, is one thing I would never trade for anything else in this world. xo Maria | https://imommy.co

    Beautiful posts. It’s something that we should acknowledge more often, but at least there’s a specific day that we can tell our moms how much they mean to us.

    I really love being a single mother to the FAB Five… we may have had our ups and downs… but we always bounce back and are stronger than ever! I truly am blessed that ALLAH blessed me with my babies… I am such a proud momma… Happy Mother’s Day Ladies… Stay blessed ~ejnosillA
