Happy Mother's Day, Mom

 
She's the one who carried you in her womb for nine long months.
And even though she knew she'd have morning sickness, stretch marks and hours of hard labor, she couldn't wait to hold you in her arms.
 
She's the one who got up with you every two hours through the night, and rocked you to sleep when you were teething or sick.
 
She's the one who wiped your nose, wore baby spit-up as perfume, and worried about you all night if she ever got a chance to go out and leave you with a baby-sitter.
 
She's the one who stayed up late helping you with your homework, and spent a few weekends helping you finish your class projects.
She's the one who baked cupcakes for the school bazaar and sewed your costume for the class play.
 
She's the one who ran around out front taking pictures of you and your date on Prom Night and spent half the night worrying about you afterwards.
 
She was at most of your games cheering for you, and never forgave herself for missing the others.
She picked you up after practice, and stayed in the background so she wouldn't embarrass you.
 
She's the one who always told you that you were beautiful, and the one who still loved you when you told her you couldn't wait to move out and be on your own.
 
She's the one who cried at your wedding, and held your hand when you were having your own baby.
She's the one person who loves your kids as much as you do.
 
You know who she is.
 
I hope you called her today and wished her a Happy Mother's Day.
 
If you didn't... it's not too late.
She's still waiting for you to call.
 
I wish I could call my Mom.
 
Happy Mother's Day, Mom.
