As we head into mom's week, I'm reminded of the hard work and love
that my mother puts into our family, like the late nights of caring for us
when we're sick, or making our meals - both for dinner and for lunch the next day.
Not to mention the super knowledge that my mom has in knowing where everything I misplaced is.
Then you've got the awareness of knowing when the deadlines for my dentist appointments are,
the attention and loving ability to listen when we need it most, when we're at our lowest,
contrasted by the proud acknowledgement when we excitedly tell her about our personal bests.
Then I think about all the patience my mom has in putting up with my random ventures or my quirky pet peeves,
and the trust and faith she has when I tell her I'm going to do something new.
For all the moms in my sales area,
I want you to know that I appreciate the fact that being a mom is the hardest job in the world,
because I've experienced first hand seeing my mom work her BUTT off EVERYDAY
for me and my brother and never expecting a thing in return.
I want to thank you for doing an amazing job,
because even though you may not be acknowledged every day for it, we love and appreciate you.
You are the reason we are the people we are, because it's either good genes or good parenting, and both ways, that's a role you've played!
This week, I will treat every mom I meet as my very own, because I know my mom will be proud that I did.
To all the moms, thank you for doing what you do.
To my mom, this week is for you.
from me and SWCalgary
