A Mother is…selfless in every way.

A Mother is someone who lets you cry in her arms after your boyfriend dumps you and tells you that you don’t need a boy to be fabulous. You already are.

A Mother is someone who gets up early to make your lunch for school and sneaks in a written note to say she loves you.

A Mother is someone who can rock an 80’s perm like nobody’s business.

She can also style a mean side pony when she has to.

A Mother is someone who cuts the crusts off your bread even though she doesn’t have time to butter her own.

A Mother is someone who communicates well. When she calls you by your first, middle, and last name you know you are in deep trouble.

A Mother is also someone who is a master of non-verbal communication. With just one look, you know she knows what you did…and that’s never good.

A Mother is someone who writes Operation Beautiful notes and leaves them wherever she travels.

A Mother is someone who defies the aging process because she radiates love and beauty.

A Mother is someone who supports your love of singing, tutus, furry pets, and rollerskates.

A Mother is someone with patience. She understands that your terrible twos and troublesome teenage years will pass. And when they do, she misses them.

A Mother is someone who teaches you the power of the written word.

A Mother is someone who is awake at night worrying when you are going through a tough time. Whether you are a toddler with a bad cold, a 16 year old girl with a broken heart, or a 25 year old woman struggling with a career decision. She’s used to not getting much sleep.

A Mother is someone who cries when she reads your cards.

A Mother is someone who misses you when you are not around. She reads your blog, calls you, and emails you. She even learns how to use Twitter and Skype just so she can be more connected. (still working on the texting, but we’ll get there!)

A Mother is someone who takes a picture of a recipe that she made because she knows you will be proud.

A Mother is someone who gives you the last piece of cake and exclaims that she ‘isn’t hungry’ after all.

A Daughter is someone who thinks her Mom deserves to eat more cake.

Thankfully, Mother’s are forgiving because this recipe I planned to share with you yesterday did not taste good!

I have a feeling that if I could be with my mom today, she would love this cake anyways.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers who make this world go round. wlEmoticon redheart   A Mother Is…

Loved this post Angela — especially the little part about your mom joining Twitter and suck to stay better connected. That made me smile :)

Aweeee Ange, you made me tear up!!! Mothers are ALL of those things, and so much more. During my terrible teenage years, I never understood the love of a mother until the time came for me to realize that I will be leaving in the fall. Even through everyday fights, it is not easy to see how much love we have for one another, but today especially I am trying to show her that<3

Soo lovely post Angela! Your mother is such a pretty lady :) I was the same as Katelyn stated above – in my teenage years, I was kind of a brat who never really understood how important the mother-daughter relationship was! Fortunetelly I am much clever now:)

Hi Angela,

Been reading your blog for a while and loving it! But this post was the first one that made me cry…The way you describe your mum is beautiful and reminds me of my own mum. Unfortunately she isn’t amongst us anymore but i’m sure my loving memory of her will never be gone. Thanks for your beautiful post :)

Okay I cried. I mean I cried like cartoons when tears come flying out their eyes from left to right. Now I miss my mommy. I will have to call her today.

To think I just came here to see the latest recipe or news about your deck and instead you moved me to my core. Thanks Ang.
Sabs.

Oh Angela…what a beautiful post!

Not sure if you’re ever thinking of becoming a mother but if you are, omg lookout, you are going to be amazing.

That pic of you and your mom is just…beautiful. I only hope one day that my daughter loves me the way you love your mom.

She IS the child of a food blogger tho b/c she asked hubs to dictate a mother’s day card for me that I just opened and it thanked me for always making her yummy yummy snacks and that makes me an awesome mom. She’s 4. And it’s all about the yummy snacks apparently :)

The cake. I bet it tastes great! It looks like it does!

Oh this brought tears to my eyes – what a beautiful post Angela.

I did LOL at the bad 80′s perm reference, as my mom definitely had her share. You didn’t mention mom jeans though…..

Happy mother’s day to all the wonderful women who make this world go round!

p.s. I can recognize you in your kid photos by your smile!

I have tears in my eyes! I just sent this to my mother – I am far away from her in France and your words expressed exactly how I feel! I am also finishing off a huge plate of your tahini avocado chickpea salad which may just possibly be the greatest lunch ever invented in history. So merci beaucoup! Wishing you and your Mom a fabulous Mother’s Day!
