Default Share this if you love your mom



Ur mom carried u in her womb for 9 months.
She felt sick 4 months with nausea.
She watched her feet swell & her skin
stretch & tear. She struggled 2 climb
stairs, she got breathless quick,...She
suffered many sleepless nights. She
then went through excruciating pain 2
bring u into this world.
Then, she became ur nurse, ur chef, ur
maid, ur chauffeur, ur biggest fan, ur
teacher, & ur best friend.
She's struggled 4 u, cried over u,
hoped d best 4 u, & prayed 4 u.
Most of us take our mom 4 granted.
But there r people who have lost or
never even seen theirs.
If you have a loving Mother who did all
of this for you, you are very lucky,
never devalue her worth because one
day, you'll wish you hadn't!.
To every women who is a mother, and
to every other women who is going to
be one day...

I notice it doesn't thank mothers for teaching their kids grammar and spelling.

Pregnancy doesn't affect every woman the same way, either. I was never really nauseated, while other women are sick all day every day for months. I could jog up a flight of stairs at full term, while other women can barely walk or are on bed rest.

And I've never heard of pregnancy causing skin to tear. Delivery, yes.

And you can't even bother to take the time to spell out the word "your"? Color me underwhelmed.

That's OK, it only applies to 'every women who is a mother, and to every other women who is going to be one day'. As a confirmed spinster, I'm exempt.

What a contrast. Amazing illustration and awful text.

I guess it's one way to deal with the "should I use 'your' or 'you're'?" problem, J. G.

I don't want to be my kids' best friend, tyvm.

and if any of my 3 would even think of re-posting this kind of thing, I'd be very upset...I'd rather they showed their love for me in less self-involved ways.

It's a different dynamic when there's only one kid, and pretty much only one parent. But being DD's parent always came ahead of being her friend, at least when she was still a child.

I know that very well..

I was the daughter to the single mother and more so when my sister left home. My mother keeps pushing the idea we should be friends even though I have made it clear I don't want that kind of relationship with her.

She's not the kind of person I want as a friend. I don't have a problem with her being my mother though.

My daughter and I just happen to be compatible as friends. Good thing, really, since things have just worked out so that we're thrown together a lot.

My mother and I are friends, but the dynamic is different than a typical friendship. But then I'm weird, I never went through that "embarrassed to be with you" phase. She did have to learn that taking me bra shopping does not cheer me up.

That was my first thought. We need to start a campaign. Any glurge that ends with that claim is to be deleted on sight, and the author hunted down and slapped.

My mother is an Honours English major. She is also on one of my Facebook accounts. If I shared this she would be horrified.

If my son ever shares this sort of pish, he's getting books on spelling, grammar and proper use of language for his next 30 birthdays.

My stretch marks from the first pregnancy sometimes bled during my second pregnancy. Maybe my skin didn't "tear" per se, but it was stretched to a point of such tenderness that little abuses like scratching or tight elastic would open little tears.

I was afraid to sneeze.
