Day 233: Because You Should Be Spending Time With Your Mom Instead [Top 5 Top 5 Sunday]

What can I say? I miss my Mom. And I’m overjoyed that I get to see her in a few days. I know a lot of people don’t have that benefit. I’m very fortunate and privileged. I feel for those people that can’t see their mother. I don’t know what I would do without her in my life. She’s the ever-comforting voice that assures me the sun will come up tomorrow. She’s my #1 fan. She’s the reason why I do half of the things I do. And I hope you feel the same way about yours. So if you’re fortunate enough to see your Mom today, make sure you cherish every goddamn moment. Because a lot of us wish we could do the same. I’ll stop wasting your time. Go see your Mom. Or call her. Or think about her. Or all three things.
Happy Mother’s Day!
