call your mother

Don’t call her an old woman, for she’s lived much longer than you with more experience at important things in life than you have yet to even consider.
Don’t call her forgetful, for she still remembers every birthday and anniversary with a handwritten card while you forget to even pick up a phone.
Don’t call her stubborn, for she’s a wealth of opinions years in the making and voiced for all the right reasons while you still worry what others think of you.
Don’t call her old-fashioned, for she can recite decades of memories by heart as if they were yesterday while you rely on Facebook photos and reminders.
This Mother’s Day, don’t call your Mom anything, but call her while you still can.
