We are days away from the annual implementation of a 24-hour period to appreciate the most important woman in our lives - our mother.
Aside from being a great provider, a faithful supporter and an all-in-one teacher, jokester and motivator, Mom is also fantastic at doing something better than anyone else: finding our stuff. Whether it’s the leftovers, your phone or the remote, Mom seems to be able to recover our missing items with seemingly little or no effort. Chances are, she has exercised this amazing power in at least one of the following situations.
The refrigerator finder. “Are we out of butter?” The question comes out of near desperation when you realize that your breakfast toast is bare and the tub, stick or spread is nowhere to be seen in the deep realms of the chilled inventory. As if magic, Mom comes in, sweeping her eyes smoothly over the drawers and shelves before quickly landing upon the hidden necessity.
The ancient artifact. Your passport is missing. You can’t find an old book or photo. That item that is only used every once in a while proves to be difficult to uncover time and time again. Without fail, however, Mom pulls through with a swift saunter through the house as she manages to re-discover the belonging without so much as ruffling a couch cushion.
The department store discovery. Whether it’s preparing for prom night or finding a Halloween costume, your mother has a knack for sliding between hopeless hanging garments and revealing the perfect match for you. She can find the gems in the clearance section, the shoes labeled the incorrect size and the last remaining raincoat just as the weather shifts unexpectedly.
The silver lining. From broken hearts to bad grades, life’s cruel hand can often seem unbearable. Mom unconditionally allows you to sulk, swoon or sink, but she certainly enables you to see the lesson hidden behind the curtain of this calamity. She can find the last ray of hope even when it seems as though the darkest days are ahead. No matter how many times it may seem unrealistic or forced, she has always been right when it comes to getting past the bumps and bruises life hands us along the way.
The key captivator. Car keys, house keys or any other set seem to go disappearing the exact moment that you need them most. Your mom fearlessly finds these stubborn guys with grace and patience, and she saves the day over and over again. Keeping you on time, under a roof and away from a temper tantrum, Mom proves, once again, that there truly isn’t anything she can’t find.
This Mother’s Day, it’s important to appreciate the woman who guides and helps us through so much. Don’t forget to thank your mom or mom figure in your life for all that she does, and especially for helping keep track of all of your belongings! Maybe it’s time to give her a break and let TrackR bravo do that instead!
