12 Songs That Will Make You Want to Call Mom

Mama. More often than not, this name is a child’s first word. And how fitting, because what a tender and rightful honor it is for the woman who carried them, birthed them, fed them, comforted them, bathed them, soothed them, and loved them. The bond between a mother and her child is intrinsic, timeless, powerful, and unconditional. Here are twelve songs with lyrics that reflect the universal love for mothers that will make you want to pick up the phone and call Mom to tell her how much you love and appreciate her.

1. “Mama Liked the Roses,” Elvis Presley

Oh, mama liked the roses, she grew them in the yard
But winter always came around and made the growing way too hard
Oh, mama liked the roses and when she had the time
She’d decorate the living room, for all us kids to see

When I hear the Sunday bells ringing in the morning
I remember crying when she used to sing
Oh, mama liked the roses but most of all she cared
About the way we learned to live and if we said our prayers

2. “Mother Like Mine,” The Band Perry

She’s our father’s one great love
She’s the one he wanted most
She’s the light in the window of the house I grew up in
She takes the midnight call
She’s the bravest of us all
And she sings in the garden that she let’s her hair down in

Oh the wars would all be over
‘Cause she’d raise us all as friends
And no one would ever wonder if somebody wanted them
Tonight would be easier
And our dreams would all be deeper
If the world had a mother like mine

13 Quotes About Mothers to Share With Mom

Mom carried you for a long nine months, delighting in those first kicks and groaning at your physical fitness routine against her abs when she was trying to sleep. She delivered you, held you, kissed you, rocked you, nurse you, comforted you, fed you, protected you, encouraged you, praised you, steered you, raised you, and loved you in the unconditional way that only a mother can feel for her child. Share some of these beautiful quotes about mothers with your mom for Mother’s Day and always. Even better, give her a booklet of dates that you’ll take her on!

My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw.

Successful mothers are not the ones that have never struggled. They are the ones that never give up despite the struggles.

Life began with waking up and loving my mother's face.

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.

10 Pleasing Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

10 Pleasing Gift Ideas for Mother's Day!

Attention, all children of mothers – and that means all of the human population – Mother’s Day is coming up fast! This year, Mom’s special day is on Sunday, May 10th. Before you choose a gift for the woman that lovingly attended to your soiled diapers and nobly tolerated your teenage angst, consider what kind of woman Mom is. Is she the kind of lady that insists on practical gifts, and would rather receive something she actively needs? Or is the type of woman that would love a whimsical or feminine “extra” that she couldn’t justify buying for herself? Perhaps you’re seeking a gift for your wife, who is now juggling two toddlers and feels like she’s losing herself. Regardless, here are ten gift suggestions to cover the bases for any type of Mom.

1. A box of chocolate… soaps

A box of chocolate is a classic, albeit somewhat generic and expected, choice of gift for any occasion that focuses on a lady. This year, switch it up by giving the mom in your life a box of chocolate soaps! Many women often jokingly complain about the temptation that a whole box of chocolates presents – what will stop you from polishing off the box in a day? Luckily, chocolate soaps are a treat that she can indulge in every day. With skin-loving ingredients like olive, coconut, shea butter, cocoa butter, and sweet almond oil, these delectable soaps will make her shower time a deliciously sensory experience.

2. DIY lip balm kit

Dry lips are something that plague many of us, making lip balm a staple in a woman’s handbag. Even if you are lucky enough to have naturally moisturized lips, a quick swipe of lip balm is an easy way for a busy mom on-the-go to feel more polished (handling small children in the morning doesn’t allow for a full makeup routine!). But whether she’s in her twenties or her sixties, the gift of customization is always appreciated. With a DIY lip balm kit, she can experiment to achieve a yummy flavor of her personal preference.

10 Ways to Give Your Love Life a Spring Cleaning

10 Ways to Give Your Love Life a Spring Cleaning

Ah, springtime – the quintessential time to get in sync with nature’s warm and sunny renewal and revamp your own environment. It’s refreshing and revitalizing to raid your closet, haul out a pile of clothes to sell or donate, and use the freed-up space and money to buy items that reflect the new you. It’s a satisfying breath of fresh air to snap on the gloves, grab the Swiffer and Clorox wipes, and give your place a deep cleaning. Why stop at merely revamping your physical surroundings? Give your love life a spring cleaning! What’s the point of basking in your freshly washed sheets if you’re dripping mascara tears onto your pillow? Sweep away the insecurities and take the emotional trash to the curb for a fresh start this spring!

1. Snap on the metaphorical gloves and assess the situation

It’s the difference between doing your makeup looking into a dimly-lit, steamed-up, grime-smeared bathroom mirror and a clean, polished, well-lit mirror. When you’re using a grimy mirror where you can only see the vague outline of your features, you think everything is okay. It’s only when you’re shocked by the clarity of a clean mirror that you see your unblended concealer, patches of missing foundation, and mismatched eyeliner wings. Much like wiping your mirror clean, wipe away the grime from the lens with which you view your love life.

2. Assess the situation and mess

Be honest. Some aspects will be like grime that’s tough to remove, and you’ll try to deny things or validate them. But it’s springtime, baby, so put on some cleaning gloves and face the dirty facts. You can’t shove things under the bed or throw things in the closet and claim cleanliness any longer. You can’t say, “Well, I’m a big girl, I can handle a certain degree of a-holery” or “I’ve always liked the bad boys, it’s just my type, so I can deal with them.” Really be honest with yourself. You can’t improve or achieve the full potential of a rewarding, satisfying love life if you have dirty dishes and trash piled up everywhere and say, “Oh, it’s okay, I’m used to this, so this is fine for me.” Uh-uh, honey. Do you settle for guys that don’t treat you well because you grew up watching your mom tolerate a subpar husband, so you’ve internalized that as normal? Do you stick with deadbeat boyfriends because hey, it’s better than being single?
