Today's Review: Mothers

Everyone loves their mother. Okay, maybe not everyone loves their mother, there could have been some disowning, abuse or other such bad juju along the line to get in the way, but the vast majority of people love their mother. Again, in the majority of cases, everyone's mother loves them.

Some mothers can be awesome, some not so awesome. There are varying degrees of mother. Your mother can be your best friend. You mother can embarrass you in front of your friends. Your mother can smother you. Your mother can let you learn from your own mistakes and be as independent as you can be. Mothers are people, and people can do all different kinds of things. Everyone will most likely have a different opinion of their mother than another person has of theirs.

But the one thing that remains constant is this: You wouldn't exist without your mother. Your mother carried you around inside her, it may have been for nine months, it may have been slightly longer, it may have been a lot less. But at the end of it all, your mother pushed you out of her vagina. And that hurts a lot. If she didn't push you out of her vagina, she got sliced open right the way through to where you were, and even when that's stitched up it can still split open. Your mother suffered to get you to where you are today. She may have had a nice pregnancy, but there's going to be some amount of suffering anyway. Perhaps your mother almost died while giving birth to you, in some sad cases maybe she did. But she did it for you. That's why mothers are awesome.

My rating: 5/5
