One of the most challenging and gratifying relationships is between a mother and her kid. As any parent will tell you, raising a kid is an extraordinarily difficult task, and moms deserve our gratitude and admiration.

While one day out of the year isn't enough to show her how much you care, Mother's Day is a fantastic start. In celebration of all moms, it's vital to recognize all of the tremendous sacrifices they've had to make for the benefit of their children.

Thank her for turning her nights into sleepless ones
Our mothers never took "time off," whether it was rocking us back to sleep as newborns or soothing us during a terrifying rainstorm. Of course, knowing that they would be there for us anytime we needed them makes us all feel protected. While we may never be able to repay our mothers for all of the late hours they spent with us, we can certainly express our gratitude.

Thank her for feeding us and keeping us nourished
Our mothers always believed that a cheerful tummy was full. This may have meant excellent dinners at home or perhaps eating out on occasion. Even if they were still hungry, our mothers would occasionally let us take the last bite. So, it's probably time to give our mums a huge hug and say "Thank you" for keeping us nourished for so long.

Thank her for her presence while you were sick or needy 
Even when they weren't feeling 100%, these great ladies in our life didn't get a day off from parenthood. A family with children is always a family with germs. Despite everyone's best efforts, colds and illnesses ultimately spread across the family. Our sick mothers, on the other hand, fought through sneezing and sore throats to be there for us, which deserves a huge ‘Thank you!’

A big thank you for all the precious time and moments she gave us
Our mothers were willing to sit on the sofa with us and watch an over-the-top cartoon, even if it wasn't their favorite show. Our moms also shared their passions with us, performing music for us and reading us some of their favorite novels. But, in the end, it was all about spending time with one other. We would never exchange this moment for anything else in the world.

Thank you for allowing us to be who we are
We all remember being bouncing balls of energy and vitality as kids. Our mothers had to keep up with us the entire time. They did, however, allow us to be our high-energy, creative selves, even if it cost them their sanity sometimes. Our moms nurtured and encouraged us to pursue our passions. Perhaps more than any other sacrifice, allowing us to be ourselves deserves a huge thank you.
