A mother's heart is her family's time capsule. Think about it. From the stories behind each one of our scars to the family history they pass down, she's the one who reminds us of who we are and where we came from when we're lost.

Back when we were bitties, the conversation revolved around us–our needs, our wants, our fears, and Nickelodeon. Today we come full-circle and make it about the one who gave us the light in our eyes.

Mother's Day can be a cool time for Mom to reflect on her journey and share it with us. And whether her focus is motherhood or the wisdom she's learned from life's greatest lessons, you won't want to miss all she has to share.

If you're close with your mother, you're probably wondering what insight, if any at all, an article like this could foster. In all honesty, it has little to do with the relationship you share with your mother.

Personal experience points to the value I've found in getting to know my mother as my friend with each passing year. She's smart, funny, cool, and kind. And while she'll always be my mom before she's my friend, I welcome the combo.
