5 Reasons Why You Should Appreciate Your Mom

The older I get, the more I come to appreciate my mother and understand that all she did for me when I was younger was for my own good. It ultimately shaped me into the woman I am today and I have been making a point to show her that. Since Mother's Day is coming up, I figured that there is no time better than the present to refresh on all the reasons moms are really the best kind of people. 

1. They Know You Better Than Anyone Else

Since they have the benefit of watching you grow up, they know exactly how your mind works. 

2. They Are Always On Your Side

No matter what life throws at you, moms are always there to defend you.

3. They Are Excellent Listeners

Sometimes your girlfriends can't put their phone away long enough to listen to you talk about your dreadful math grade, but mothers always have a listening ear and the best part is, they actually care. 

4. You Feel Comforted By Their Presence

Mothers are the ultimate safety blankets. 

5. No Matter How Much Crap You Put Them Through, They Still Love You

During your bratty teen years while you hung out with that boy; when you went to college and never visited; and basically your whole life; your mother has loved you unconditionally.
