Don’t call her an old woman,
for she’s lived longer than you with more experiences at more important things in life than you have yet to even consider.
Don’t call her forgetful,
for she still remembers every birthday, anniversary and holiday with a handwritten card while you forget to even make a phone call.
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 will think of you.
Don’t call her old-fashioned,
for she can recite decades of memories by heart as though they were yesterday while you rely on Facebook reminders and smartphone photos.
This Mother’s Day, don’t call your mom anything,
just call her.
She’s absolutely worth it… while you still can.
