Reading Time: 4 minutes

It’s no secret that our awesome mums are the greatest and they make the biggest difference in our lives. 

The “Mum” is often used as a synonym for “the most important person in your life” and we all know how it feels to be a kid and grow up without one.

So why don’t we acknowledge them more? They do so much more than us. And yet, we often put them down when they’re being nice to us or giving us gifts, or just making us laugh.

Well, here are 8 things that we should acknowledge.

1. They give us unconditional love

You know that feeling of love you get when you look at your mom and it just makes you feel warm inside? 

It may sound cheesy, but I can tell you from experience that there is nothing better than having someone who loves you unconditionally, who will always be there for you and make sure you have everything you need to live a happy life. 

They improve our lives because they love us for who we are. 

2. They teach us how to respect ourselves

The way we treat others is often a reflection of how we respect ourselves, and our moms do a great job of helping us to learn how to treat ourselves well. 

It’s often the small things they do that teach us to be more gentle with ourselves and treat ourselves better. 

And sometimes, when we feel a little down, it’s just the encouragement we need to feel good about ourselves again. 

3. They show us how to forgive and forget easily

There are some things in life that you just can’t get over, and for some people, those are mistakes or hurts from their childhoods. 

It can be really hard to let go of the past, but our awesome mums make it easier for us by showing us how important it is to forgive others for their mistakes and how much happier we can be if we let go of what has happened in the past. 

They show us that it’s OK not to like someone, but not being able to hold a grudge against them is better than hating them because they did something wrong. 

4. They teach us how important family is (not just blood)

There are a lot of families out there that are like families in the movies. But most of us don’t have one of those, and we need to learn how to love our family unconditionally and be there for them. 

We often get taught how to treat our family members by the way our parents treated each other, so we need to learn from them as well. 

5. They give us the gift of imagination and creativity

Some people are more creative than others, but everyone has the potential to be creative, even if they don’t think they do. 

We all know that it’s not just what you say or do that makes a difference, but also how you say it or do it. 

And having a creative mom is one of the best ways for kids to develop their imagination and creativity.

6. They teach us about time management and personal development (by example)

Our awesome mums can sometimes be over-protective or over-controlling, but this is usually because they want us to grow up and become independent people who can take care of themselves. 

And we need to learn how to be self-sufficient so that we can take care of ourselves when we grow up. 

And we need to learn how to handle time well so that we can have more time for ourselves. 

7. They show us how to make the most of our lives

Sometimes, even though we know it’s wrong, we might feel a little bad about ourselves because we don’t have the things other people have or because other people have more than us. 

But our moms show us that there is always something you can do to make the most of your life, and they teach us how to see things from a different perspective and do things differently so that we can feel better about ourselves. 

8. They give us an understanding of family dynamics

We’re all familiar with the phrase “It takes a village to raise a child”, but what our awesome mums teach us is that it takes an entire family to raise a child. 

We need to learn how to love each other and appreciate each other, even if we have differences of opinion or different ideas about how things should be done. 

And this understanding of family dynamics is one thing that makes life easier and more enjoyable for everyone.

So let’s give our awesome mums a little more credit and appreciation, shall we?
