    What do you admire about your mom

    With this special day coming up, I'm wondering what you admire about your mom.

    Me: She never said, "Just wait until you're a parent."

    She has this incredible ability to make MrsBrianHos furious!

    Gotcha. My mom has only angered the wife twice in 15 years. Holy ****, I wanted to jam knitting needles in my ears.

    What I enjoy about my mom? A fridge full of beer and food when I go home. Mom and Dad usually pick up the tab at the bar too.

    Great cook. Held down the fort when my dad was off on business, and still takes care of me even though I am the bad child in the family.

    Re: What do you admire about your mom

    Unfortunately, my mom is a bad cook, ticks of my wife constantly, and never acts like she cares to spend time with her only grandchildren (my sons). Before I got married, I thought my mom was pretty decent though.

    Re: What do you admire about your mom

    1.She always found the good in people.
    2. She lived/truly lived each day of her life, never took anything for granted.
    3. I never heard her complain in 80 plus years of living.
    4. She always, always made time for her children and grandchildren.

    I could go on and on, I was very lucky.


    If you don't think every day is a good day, try missing one.
