Moms are Important in Many Ways

I think sometimes we underestimate the total impact that mothers have. You see a lot said about moms when you go to a funeral. There’s always a lot of talk about how selfless they were and how much they gave up for their children. And I could say that you see similar things on greeting cards. 

But, being selfless and sacrificing isn’t really the core of what most mothers do. I think we need to adjust our blinders a bit here. 

There’s a ton of mothers that have really kicked some ass—they went out and made it big in business, they’re politicians, they’re broadcasters, they’re professional sports coaches (like my friend Nancy Lieberman, a proud mom breaking ground as an NBA assistant)…the old school way of thinking is that mothers are just there for their children, but that is not the case anymore. 

I think about my mother—she wasn’t there everyday when I got home giving me milk and cookies. She was working! She was owning a business, she was getting after it. And I think there’s a lot of mothers that are blazing trails across all areas today it’s important that we talk about that. 

Here are some of the things my mother taught me:

  • How to make money
  • You don’t have to agree with everyone to be right
  • Your friends will determine your future
  • Help others without asking for anything in return
  • Don’t be afraid to kick someone’s ass if need be
  • Ask nicely and say “Please” and “Thank You”
  • Be fearless.
  • Go after your dreams and don’t be afraid to fail.
  • Be spontaneous even if its 2:00am.
  • How to play poker and black jack and not to be afraid to hit on 15
  • How to fight back, but also how to fight forward.

I would like to see more cards with this stuff on there.

  • My purpose out here today is to share this article to the world about how Doctor Odunga helped me in getting back my EX-boyfriend who broke up with me 4 months ago. I tried all I could to make him see reasons with me so that we can continue our relationship but he denied me. Thank God for giving me the thought of going into the internet for help, I searched properly and I saw different reviews of Doctor Odunga and I insisted on giving it a try by contacting him via what’s app on (+2348167159012). He gave me reason to live again and he prepared a spell and told me that my Ex-boyfriend will come back to me within 28 hours. Can you believe it, my EX-boyfriend came back to me and our wedding will be held Soon. Contact him now!!! if you need any help. Email: and he does a lot of spells. Once again i want to say am very grateful for your help
