50 Reasons to Thank Mother

Updated on October 31, 2017
MsDora profile image

MsDora—parent, grandparent, Christian counselor—offers suggestions on raising confident, conscientious, responsible, productive children.

Have you ever taken the time to reflect on how good a woman your mother has been, and concluded that you haven’t thanked her enough for the many ways she has been good to you?

Knowing that some of my reasons to thank my mother will remind you of some reasons to thank yours, I invite you to read with your pen in hand and your notebook before you; you can make your list at the same time you read mine, and soon you will have documented a precious list of reasons to thank your mother.

Gifts She Gave Me

"All that I am ... I owe to my angel mother." - Abraham Lincoln

My mother was not talkative during my childhood. She never told me, but I knew she loved me because of the precious gifts she gave me, and I thank her.

  • (1) The gift of life;
  • (2) Adequate care and comfort in less than ideal circumstances;
  • (3) Good food;
  • (4) Appropriate girlish attire;
  • (5) Makeshift toys;
  • (6) The habit of worship—singing, praying, Bible reading;
  • (7) Health checkups;
  • (8) School all the way to completion;
  • (9) Bus fare always;
  • (10) Books to read;
  • (11) Necessities she bought for me when she could not afford to buy for both of us;
  • (12) Daily chores which fed my sense of responsibility;
  • (13) Safe surroundings;
  • (14) Investments of time and money toward making my life better and easier than hers;
  • (15) Protection (never leaving our island till I was old enough to leave home);
  • (16) Altogether, a happy childhood free from abuse and adult concerns.


Values She Taught Me

Spending Time Together

Funny how grateful we become for the values we've been taught when it's our turn to teach them to our children! We stop taking them for granted.

  • (17) Hard work and independence for which my mother was my first model;
  • (18) Respect for her, for myself, for everyone else and for God;
  • (19) Appreciation for family, especially on my father’s side;
  • (20) Good manners (courtesy);
  • (21) Personal hygiene;
  • (22) House cleanliness despite its size, and the quality of furniture and furnishings;
  • (23) Responsibility to share, especially with family members who had more needs than we had;
  • (24) Punctuality, which sometimes require setting out clothes and other necessities the night before the event;
  • (25) Gratitude—writing thank you letters for gifts;
  • (26) Excellence in knowing and reciting my poems;
  • (27) Resource management (like washing my white school socks on Friday night to make them ready for church the next day);
  • (28) Commitment to show up, barring illness, when and where duty calls;
  • (29) Wisdom, allowing her mother’s input in raising me;
  • (30) Kindness; (Once a week, every summer of high school vacation, she had me visit a certain neighbor to find out what I could do to help her and the children.)
  • (31) Loyalty, reminding me not to buy from the city stores what I could buy from the neighborhood store;
  • (32) Contentment, being happy with who I am and what I have.


Privileges She Denied Me

My mother's parenting during my teenage years may be considered over-protective by some standards. Still, when I see the self-defeating habits which some young people display today, I thank my mother for being the best parent she knew how to be.

Anyone could tell from the following scenarios that she had good intentions; and in retrospect, I have no complaints.

  • (33) After watching me playing with a male neighborhood friend (both of us preteen) who chased me and grabbed me in his arms, she told me never to let anyone play with me like that again.
  • (34) Another boy visited often to exchange books we both loved to read. She advised me not to allow him in the house when I was home alone.
  • (35) I would have loved to run through the sugar cane field with my friends after school; she convinced me that I would get cuts and bruises.

"Best Mother" Poll

Have you ever referred to your mother as the best mother in the world?

See results
  • (36) I bought four fashionable pairs of shoes at a great discount; she made me return them. “Don’t take more than you need,” she told me.
  • (37) I bought a slinky, straight forest green dress which I thought looked good on me. “Too revealing,” she decided. I never ever got to display that sexy look.
  • (38) She denied me the right to relax for the entire summer vacation. She had me become an apprentice to a seamstress.
  • (39) She never gave me the freedom to go where I wanted with whom I wanted, without submitting the details. This unreasonable restriction continued for as long as I lived with her.
  • (40) The greatest privilege I think she denied me was the right to argue my point when we had different opinions. I didn't even know I had that right.


Legacies She Established

In My Mother's Yard at Christmas

Source

My mother has established several beginnings on which I now build. In some instances, life would be difficult without these foundations. They are all legacies of love and I thank my mother.

  • (41) Whenever I do repairs or improvements on the house we live in, I give thanks to be able build on what my sensible, responsible mother started.
  • (42) Whenever someone reminds of how beautifully my mother kept her house and yard, I am motivated to repeat her performance.
  • (43) After being away for more than half of my life, my mother’s church affiliation and her good citizenship record influence the kind acceptance I enjoy on my return to the neighborhood. Most people only know me as her daughter.
  • (44) In my youth, my mother sent me to deliver Christmas dinners to her elderly aunts on Christmas Day; last Christmas several cousins delivered dinners to our house.
  • (45) Occasionally, I call my children to remind them that I am praying for them; my mother reminded me in her letters.


Opportunities She Still Offers

There are Many Hats to Inherit

MsDora's Photos
MsDora's Photos

My mother is now in her 80s and diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Our mother-daughter dance continues with some unique opportunities for me.

  • (46) The honor of giving personal care to the one who cared for me;
  • (47) The chance to develop the kindness, patience and compassion with which she cared for her mother;
  • (48) Witnessing the value of some basic long-term habits like seeing her never forget to wash her hands and say her grace before meals;
  • (49) Becoming her advocate, and looking after her interest, the way she once did for me;
  • (50) The chance to express my love and thanks like I should have been doing all along.

These fifty reasons may provide conversation for fifty nights—one reason at a time.

      Rajan, I'd call it a debt too, but with the knowledge that is never paid in full, like you suggested. Thanks for the feedback.

      What a fine tribute to your mom. A mother's influence on our lives is the most strong and lasting.

      A mother's debt, if it can be called one, can never be repaid.

      Teaches, good mothers are like that. Sometimes they say that they don't have money and then they discover that the child needs something and the money miraculously appears. Thank God for them and thanks to them.

      What a lovely tribute to your mother. I miss my mother but she left me many of the values you list here. You mentioned bus fare which reminded me that I never had to go without lunch money. Somehow, she always had it for me.

      Hi MsDora,

      The love and respect you have for your mother shows through in this and several of your other hubs. My natural mother died when I was four years old, but God gave me a replacement. She's in her mid-nineties now, can't see or hear very good, but she is one of God's biggest blessings in my life. There are certainly many reasons to thank her. And thank you for the reminder to do so.

      Dora, there's a way to set the most recent comments to show at the top. I see many hubbers that set the comment settings that way. However, I've not done it, so it will take some research on your part. Perhaps click on Comment? Maybe the setting is there.

      Shauna, I am so inspired by your comment, especially because your reasons show that you value your mother enough to take the time to list them. Most of your reasons I cannot attribute to my mother; a few I cannot. 'Twould be great if everyone just listed one reason to thank his or her mother. Wish there was a way to back up and write that at the top.

      Dora, these are all wonderful things your mother has taught you. Mine has taught me most of the same. I'd like to add:

      1. My mother taught me strength of character. There's nothing I can't overcome.

      2. She taught me to have dreams and strive until I achieve them.

      3. She taught me to laugh. A sense of humor is essential in life.

      4. She taught me to stand up for myself and what I believe in. Don't be taken advantage of by being a doormat.

      5. She gave me the gift of music. I played violin and piano when I was in elementary school.

      6. She gave me the gift of song. I remember her singing all the time as I was growing up. Music was always on. To this day, I sing and cannot go through a day without music.

      7. She taught me to be compassionate. Don't judge. You have no idea what anyone else is going through.

      8. She taught me to be creative. Creativity sets the soul free and allows the spirit to soar.

      9. She gave me the freedom to explore spirituality. I went to Catholic school, but I think it was more for the education than the teachings. I was given the freedom - once old enough - to seek what was comfortable for me.

      10. She's taught me to let my spirit fly and become who I want to be - not what's expected of me. As the result, I'm a multi-talented, multi-faceted individual.

      11. She taught me responsibility. Take care of your have-to's, then you have the freedom to explore your want-to's.

      12. I'll say it again because this is so important and so integral to who I am: be creative. Dance. Sing. Laugh. And most of all,

      13. Love.

      The fact that you thought of this means that she raised you right. There are many children you do not think of their caring parents in a grateful way. You are the fruit of her hard work because now God has given you back the chance to bless her in her time of need. I think it is a great blessing to be able to care for a parent who becomes dependent the way that we depended upon them when we were children. This is a great gift that God has given to you, MsDora but I think that you already know that.

      I love this Dora and the part where your mom limited you so you would be a proper, decent young lady; something I am sure few mothers today even consider. Saying no could be the most precious gift they could give their daughters or sons and they have no idea. Or simply leading them in the right directions.

      I think we had very like mothers and again seeing you there with your mom, you look exactly like my only living and favorite aunt. The smile, hair, stance; just a shade color difference and it could be her. I have always thought she was so beautiful and that smile was a big part of it. I know you both are very beautiful inside and out!

      Thank you for sharing this lovely list here about being thankful to your precious mother. I, too, had an angel of a mother in this life, and I know just how blessed I am to have the best mother on the planet ...as I always say, because in my mind, it is true!

      I've never met another person yet on this earth who is stronger, wiser, selfless or more beautiful in heart, mind and spirit than my precious mother.

      My mother went on to be with the Lord just five days before Christmas in 2012 at the age of 84.

      God bless you and your precious mother.

      Great list with great values. I like that you suggest we talk about, and give adequate time to, each one. I agree with Sally about 'the quiet dignity and calm'; she's so right.

      My mother (and father) taught me much; she was gentle, protective, kind and had a great sense of humour. She died in 2008 but lives on in the hearts of me and my children.

      Lovely idea and a great tribute to your mother, Dora.

And on the coldest days taking me out to go and learn how to ice skate on the pond and learn about ice and how fish still lived below the ice.

      Hi Dora, This is another one of your classic master pieces. I thank God that I appreciated my mom in the same way. My mom is gone and I have no regrets about my appreciation for her. You put it down awesomely. Just like God, mothers deserve love returned love because she loved her children first and showed it according to their characters and personalities. My mom never told me that she loved me. She didn't need to. She showed care in every way possible. Thank you for such an awesome article. Voted up too!

      What a fitting and beautiful list. One of the best things that my mother gave me is to value education. She particularly values reading and always spent a lot of time reading with us and playing board games like Memory and checkers and later games of strategy. When I was a teenager, both my sister and I nominated her (unbeknownst to one another) for the town's Mother of the Year contest by writing an essay. It was sponsored by the local newspaper. She won. She was so very proud and to this day references the honor. My brother didn't submit an entry but he loves her too. You know how boys can be.
