Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate all the mothers in our lives, whether it be our own, our wives, or those who have filled that role in our lives.  They make us laugh, smile, and learn. Here at Formtech, we took a moment to think of those in our lives who we celebrate on Mother’s Day and asked our team:

“What’s the most ‘mom’ thing your mom or wife has ever done?”

Threats of Love

“When I was in fourth grade I was doing terribly in school.  My mom called me at home while she was at work and told me Children Services had called her and was going to take me away if I didn’t start doing my homework.  After that I ALWAYS did my homework.“  –Sandi, now a successful accountant thanks to her mom

 

True Love

“The most ‘mom thing’ my mother has done is always educating me with her wise words of wisdom, teaching me that a mother’s love is the closest thing you can get here on Earth to God’s love, that no matter what you’ve done what you’re going through or where you’re at, your mother will always be there for you to shelter you from whatever storms you are in and to love you with unconditional love!” –Randall

 

Everything Is Nana’s

“My wife loves her grandkids. They call her Nana. Our daughter’s three boys love to come to ‘Nana’s’ house. Not our house, Nana’s house. Furthermore, I get kicked out of my bed, or as they call it ‘Nana’s’ bed when they spend the night. They tell me I should sleep in ‘my’ bed, in the other room. I think she put them up to that!“  –Herb

 

Sweet As Bean Soup

“I had a friend over one time and my Mom asked if he wanted to stay for dinner. I didn’t know what we were having and I asked him if there was anything he didn’t like and he said not really. We sat down to dinner and my mom had made bean soup. While eating I looked over and my friend was eating VERY slowly and I asked him what was wrong. He said quietly that he hated bean soup and that it was one of the few things he did not like. My mom heard him and got up without saying a word and fixed him something else to eat without any hesitation.” –Craig

 

Just Checking In…Again

“The most “mom thing” my wife has ever done to our 3 year-old girl is calling to check on her a million times when she is away and I am left with daddy duties! Recently I took my 3 year-old on a 3 day trip and my wife called non-stop making sure I was giving the correct amount of medicine, sunscreen, that I have fed her, given her a bath, brushed her teeth, the clip on the car seat was at her chest and not too low, and anything else you could possibly think of. So kudos to my wife that deserves the Mom-of-the-Year-Award!” –Travis

 

Led By Example

“My Mom passed away a little over 6 years ago.  Special days like Mother’s Day are just another reminder about how special she was to me, my Dad, my brother/sister, and her 3 grandkids.  My mom fought COPD and emphysema for the last 10 years of her life.  She never once complained or said ‘why me?’ when her quality of life declined every day she was still with us.  She just enjoyed the time she was here and cherished every moment she could spend with us.  Mom has taught me to enjoy my time that I spend away from work and enjoy every moment I spend with family and friends because they aren’t going to last forever.  Mom also taught me to make the best out of any bad situation.  Mom wasn’t able to work for the last years of her life, but in her younger years she was one of the hardest, most dedicated workers I’d ever been around.  I still try and make her proud and strive to do the best I can in every aspect of life, and grow everyday as a Father, a husband, and as a leader for Formtech Enterprises.” –Clint

 

Protective Mama Bear

“I had a horrible English teacher in middle school who swore I plagiarized a made up poem when I didn’t. She called my mom and my mom came into the school. She gave that teacher a ‘talking to’ and that teacher didn’t talk to me for the rest of the school year. That was in October. To this day, I’m not sure what she told that teacher.” –Aleisha

 

Little Things Are Big Things

“There isn’t just one moment that stands out to me of where my mom was being a mom. I just remember she was constantly doing mom things every day for me and my brother. Whether that was washing our clothes, fixing meals, or just being there for us during the hard times of life, my mom was always being a mom. I am thankful for her and love her for all that she has done for us and because there are a lot of kids out there that don’t have the kind of mom I have. If you’re blessed to have a mother like mine then you should say thanks not just on Mother’s Day but every day.” –Bradley

 

To all the mothers being celebrated by our Formtech family, we wish you and yours the happiest of Mother’s Days!
