Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom – CLOSED

Nothing could have ever prepared me for Motherhood.  There certainly are some wonderful aspects to it, while others – not so much.  I never truly appreciated my Mother until I had a child of my own.  It’s amazing the unconditional love that a parent has for their children.   It’s nearly impossible to even being to understand how a Mother feels about her children, until they have children of their own.

I recently received the book Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom.  The 101 real stories are by people like you and me (plus a few authors), and are all wonderful heart touching tales about Gratitude, Love and Good Time.  I enjoyed reading the stories just before bed (a time that I few minutes to reflect on the day and being a Mom).  The stories often bring tears to my eyes as it is amazing to see at what lengths a Mother will go for their children.   One of my favourite stories was about a young girl who’s Mother was ill so she became the “Mom” of the house as a young teenager.  Her mother taught her how to pay bills and even cook a full turkey dinner before she finished high school.  I am 30 and have yet to make a full turkey dinner for my entire family.   It just goes to show that family situations are different for everyone.  I am very thankful to have my Mother still here with us to make turkey dinner, but I think this year, I am going to pitch in more.  I just loved that, in this story, despite the Mother being very ill, she was still able to teach her daughter all the important life lessons.  Although it was a younger age then most, the young girl still had the opportunity to learn these things from her Mom.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom chapters include, Mom knows best, Making Sacrifices, Mom to the rescue, and My Mother’s Legacy – just to name a few.  Each chapter has a different theme to showcase all the wonderful things Mothers are capable of.  I am sure we all have wonderful stories about our Mothers.  They seem to be the least selfish and caring people on the earth.  Mother’s are willing to give up and give nearly everything for their children, and the stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom really display some amazing stories all about Moms.

I recently left this book out in the kitchen and even caught my Mom reading it.  Not only is my Mom a Mom, she is a daughter too, so I am sure she reflected on her Mom as she read the stories, much like I reflected on her while I read through the book.

This would make an excellent Mother’s Day gift, and a perfect gift for a new Mom too (I recently gave one as a present to an expecting Mom).  Mom’s have such an influence on children, and reading the stories that children have written really touched my heart.  I hope I can have this much of an influence in my daughter’s life (because I know my Mom has in mine).
