“Mother, the female parent, most likely the one who gave birth to you, and nurtured you”. Some people who a mother is will give that response. If you ask me, I’ll probably say that and add a few extra’s (a lot of extra’s actually). My mother is the female parent who carried me in her womb, went through hours of labor, had a lot of sleepless nights all because of me, my number one fan, my partner in everything good, the woman who always worries about me, can give out her arm to make me happy, etc and a whole lot of other things.
From the time we were little, until our current age, there has been one woman totally invested in our happiness, our mothers. Truth is, there are horrible mothers out there but we still have amazing mothers. The average person will say his/her mother is the best in the world; well she is the best mother for you. All a good mother wants is to provide for you, protect you and love you during your best and worst times. A mother’s love is the best example of love at first sight (well, she actually fell in love with you the moment she found out she was pregnant).
Where can you find someone who will appreciate your humor and remind you not to bite your nails? Who will do things for you without any benefit for herself? Where can one find such a selfless, genuinely kind person? Home. There are so many reasons why we love our mothers, here are 25 reasons your mum will be your best friend for life.
