Today is a special day.
Throughout the years, our moms and grandmoms have done so much for us that it's really impossible to ever celebrate them too much, which is why today is so amazing and so important. From changing our first dirty diaper to helping us plan our dream wedding- whether on a budget or with room to spend- our mothers have been here to guide us and encourage us.
Our moms were our best friends, our example of what a good wife looks like, our cheerleaders and main support. From killin' it on the dance floor to watching us walk down the aisle, they taught us how to be flexible in life and enjoy the moments.
So moms, today we celebrate YOU.
We celebrate your patience. Patience in pregnancy, in waiting for us. Patience in our late nights and rebellious period. Patience through the entire wedding planning process, whether it was three months or three years.
Your unconditional love amazes us. Whether or not you were a perfect mom doesn't matter - because honestly, nobody is- because you created a beautiful story. Every adult was once a child, a child that you gave life to. We are stories that our mothers influenced and shaped. What greater honor is there?
The wedding process is beautiful, yet emotional. Many of us are grateful that we had our mothers to lean on- for guidance, for a shoulder to cry on, for a second opinion. Those of us who have since lost you, dear mother, cherish these memories even more.
To some of us, though, our 'moms' aren't biological. These moms may be our adoptive mom, aunts, our childhood neighbor, a sister, or a friend's parent. The possibilities are endless! They may not have delivered you in the hospital room, but still are a crucial part in who you are today.
To all of the mothers, of every shape and kind- today, we celebrate you.
