Dear Mum, thank you for putting up with our cruel adolescence, bad attitudes and emotional cascades. You are truly a woman of all and we cannot thank you enough. Girls I'm sure you can relate. Here are 23 Things We Should Thank Our Mothers For...

Whether we need a shoulder to cry on, a kind voice or a hand to hold we know we can always count on mum.

1. 'You're so beautiful. Did you know that?'

Thank you for being the first person to call us beautiful and making us feel like we can conquer the world.

2. Unconditional love

Thank you for falling in love with us the minute you held us in your arms.

3. Mum's cooking

Thank you for cooking the BEST home cooked meals and teaching us your most sacred family recipes.

4. Boy warnings

Thank you for warning us about boys (even though we didn't listen).

5. Mending broken hearts

Thank you for picking up the pieces and sewing them back together when our hearts got broken.

6. The family ROCK

Thank you for being the rock in the family. We couldn't function without you.

7. True love

Thank you for being the most lovable human being we know. We might have wiped away your wet kisses when we were young but we cherished them more than you thought.

8. Personal therapist

Thank you for saying 'Everything's going to be alright' when we needed to hear it the most.

9. Showing us the ropes

Thank you for introducing us to motherhood and encouraging us to be the best mum we could be even though we had no clue. Motherhood wouldn't be half as easy without you.

10. Strength

Thank you for being stronger than strength itself. How you do it all - we don't know.

11. Engouragement

Thank you for being the proudest mum a girl could as for. THAT’S MY GIRL!!!

12. No judgements

Thank you for allowing us to still be your little daughter...no matter our age or status. We can always count on you.

13. Putting up with us

Thank you for forgiving us for being a dick when we were young. Those years between the ages of 13 and 16? We've never been proud.

14. Role model

Thank for being our first role model. If we could pick our biggest role model now, it'd still be YOU.

15. Helping us grow

Thank you for letting us make our own mistakes and teaching us to be our own person.

16. Seamstress

Thank you for being our on-call seamstress and the solver-of-all.

17. BFF

Thank you for being the greatest best friend a girl could ask for.

18. Dad

Thank you for putting up with Dad. Yeah, you know.

19. Girl power

Thank you for showing us that strength comes in form of a woman. Being feminine doesn't mean you're weak.

20. Make-up artist

Thank you for being our first make up artist and teacher-of-all-things girly.

21. Birth

Thank you for giving birth to us. (Dad appreciates it too.)

22. Selflessness

Thank you for putting our needs before yours and waking us up for school, cooking us breakfast, helping us with homework, dropping us off at sports practice and driving around on a Friday night.

​Thank you for juggling 100000 things and still showing up with a SMILE.

23. Inspiration

Thank you for being the person/mother we'll ALWAYS wish we could be......but probably could never live up to. You're truly an amazing woman
