Grown? I Don't Think So

If you are a child who frequently becomes exasperated with your mother when she says things like:

Drive safe and call me when you get there.

Put a coat on, it's cold out there.

Save your money and stop buying so many shoes.

Don't stay up all night playing that video game -- you need more sleep.

then this is for you so you'll understand why moms do these things that irritate you so much.

In Beloved, Toni Morrison wrote: "Grown don't mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child. They get bigger, older, but grown? What's that suppose to mean? In my heart it don't mean a thing.

If you're lucky enough to still have your mother or someone who is like a mother to you, give her a call and tell her you love her.

Takeaway Truth

Happy Mother's Day to moms everywhere -- the ones who gave birth, the ones who adopted, and the ones who took on the role by marriage.
