It’s MOTHER’S DAY this weekend, so we thought it fitting to take the time to remind you how awesome moms are. Whether biological mothers, step-mothers, adoptive mothers, mothers to pets, mother-figures to those in their lives, mothers in the past or mothers right now, here are 5 lyrics from Beyoncé (soon to be mother of three!) that describe why we think these women run the world.
1. “I dream it, I work hard, I grind ’til I own it.” – Formation
We all know it, but moms tend to be the ULTIMATE multi-taskers. Whether they stay at home or go to work, their job is never done. Juggling numerous responsibilities, like: running a business, keeping loved ones fed and healthy, driving kids to soccer practice, spending time with the ones they love, walking the dog, and being the number one fan are just some of the ways moms have proved their superwoman status over the years. And they own it all! They can do whatever they put their minds to and they always encourage us to do the same.
2. “Every diamond has imperfections, but my love’s too pure to watch it chip away.” – All Night
Nothing beats a mother’s love. Regardless of how we feel about ourselves, we can always count on moms to think we’re the best people in the world. These ladies are the people who love us when we’ve messed up, encourage us when we’re feeling blue, give us “just because” cuddles, go the extra mile, and do SO much for us – rarely asking for anything in return.
3. “…endless power, with our love we can devour.” – Who Run the World
Moms have a power within them that is fueled by love – love for life, love for their family, love for their pets, love for their friends, and love for those they take care of. And, just like a mama bear protects her cubs, moms are never happy when those they love are picked on. Yes, they are still full of sugar and spice and everything nice. But, if you rub them the wrong way, you better WATCH OUT.
4. “When you hurt me, you hurt yourself. Don’t hurt yourself.”— Don’t Hurt Yourself
Moms have a way of being in charge because of the sweet spot they hold in our hearts. No one wants to see a mom hurt, sad, and DEFINITELY not angry. Because, if mom’s not happy then nobody’s happy. Moms run the show… and it’s not manipulative or bossy, it’s just smart.
5. “I woke up like this. We flawless…” – Flawless
Regardless of all the running around they do or whether they feel like it or not, these women have a beauty that shines from the inside out. Moms will always be the most beautiful people in the world because of the love, grace, and selflessness it takes to fill that role. Whatever their age, health, or circumstance, we can all agree that these ladies are FLAWLESSLY beautiful without even needing to try.
Let’s make sure we treat all the moms in our lives like the QUEENS they are this weekend.
Happy Mother’s Day!
