Thanks Mum!

When you came into the world, she held you in her arms. You thanked her by wailing like a banshee.
When you were 1, she fed you and bathed you. You thanked her by crying all night long.

When you were 2, she taught you to walk. You thanked her by running away when she called.

When you were 3, she made all your meals with love. You thanked her by tossing your plate on the floor.

When you were 5, she walked you to school. You thanked her by screaming, “I’M NOT GOING!”

When you were 9, she paid for piano lessons. You thanked her by never bothering to practice.

When you were 11, she took you and your friends to the movies. You thanked her by asking to sit in a different row.

When you were 15, she came to you, looking for a hug. You thanked her by having your bedroom door locked.

When you were 17, she was expecting an important call. You thanked her by being on the phone all night.

When you were 19, she paid for your college tuition, drove you to campus, carried your bags. You thanked her by saying good-bye outside the dorm so you wouldn’t be embarrassed in front of your friends.

OUCH!! We won’t go on! This humorous account of being a mum simply highlights all the things our mothers do for us (and that we do for our own children) that often go un-noticed. It truly is a role worthy of appreciation!
