When I was sick she gave me herbs And rubbed Vicks on my chest They tasted and smelled awful But Mother knows best I usually like her cooking But the broccoli I detest I couldn’t get up ‘til I ate it all Cause Mother knows best I didn’t want to play with sis Cause she was being a pest But Mom said it teaches me patience I guess Mother knows best I didn’t want soap in my mouth For telling a lie, so I confessed Other kids just got “time-outs” But Mother knows best I wanted to go out with my friends Instead of studying for a test But Mom helped me study and made flash cards Cause Mother knows best. When I'm lonely, unhappy Sad or distressed I can depend on my mother Cause she always knows best

Sometimes I feel like I’m learning, just as much as my children! I don’t know if I always know best, but I do think we sometimes go through hard experiences that are for our benefit – and we may not always understand why in the moment. Having people who love you and walk through those moments with you is the biggest gift ❤
