Mom: She's always there for you, in your corner, on your side. So it can be easy to take her for granted, sometimes. Which is why we're glad Mother's Day exists (mark your calendars: May 10 this year). It's not about the flowers or the breakfast in bed (though those are nice), it's about recognizing mothers and telling them, loud and clear, that we love them.
