Happy Mother's Day

(If you're here because my Goodreads review of Tangled Tides by Karen A Hooper said that I was going to review it, sorry. When I said that, I forgot it was Mother's Day. So, come back on Wednesday, May 16 and check out the review. :D  ) (AND everyone visiting, my awesome giveaway is going on-now until Friday-check it out here.)

Okay, moving on...

To all the mom's out there- HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!! I hope you have/are having a fantastic day. My kids may drive me crazy. Like PLEASE put me in a padded room, far far away from them, crazy. But I really don't mean that. I love my babies and I would be nothing without them. I'm a mom, and proud of it.

But I'm not going to talk about me, because there are moms who are so much more important than me. I say that because for one, I don't like to focus in on myself too much and for two, today is MotherS day, plural. It's a day for everyone in this world who is or has ever been a mom. It's for that woman with six kids, busting her ass at two jobs and still finding time to love all six of them with every bit of her heart. It's for that mom who knows what it feels to carry a life inside of her body. For the woman who was pregnant but unfortunately lost her baby. Or even the woman who gave birth to a baby, only to lose them after a few months. For the moms who play BOTH roles (mother and father). For the moms who get pregnant and then give their baby away (or have them taken by the state/a family member) because they don't want to be moms....guess what? You're still a mom, whether you like it or not.

My mom works hard every day, and when my sister and I were little, she busted her ass to be the best mom she could. And she's AWESOME. My sister and I are moms who play both roles. It's hard, but we manage. We make mistakes, but we do things right too. I've watched my niece and nephew turn into awesome teenagers (with minimal issues) and it was my sister who raised them that way. She's AWESOME. My Grandma on my dad's side raised 3 boys and 2 girls, mostly alone, and while working 2-3 jobs. Yet, she did it. My dad is the best man I've ever known. And it's thanks to his mom for raising him to be that way. She's AWESOME. My Grandma on my mom's side past away in 2008, but she raised 4 wonderful children. She was AWESOME, all three women she raised are AWESOME moms and the one boy is the second best man I know.

If you're a mom who is a loving, giving, caring, hard working, etc. kind of mom-HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, you're AWESOME!

If you're a mom who hates her kids for ever being born, TOO BAD, you did it, you brought them here, get over it and love them. You are a mother, no matter how you feel about it. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

And to every mom in-between, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Oh and I know there are dads out there who have to play both roles, so HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to you as well.

Moms are AWESOME, take a moment to thank all the moms in your life and wish them a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Happy Sunday to everyone reading this who is not a mom and Happy Mother's Day to everyone who is :D

Yes, get over it!
Not a mom or a parent, but I do have a wonderful mother.
Happy Mother's Day to you, Kela.
