Mom, Thanks A Lot

Thanks for all those lies you told me. Thanks for how you made me think the world wasn’t as scary as it really is. 

Lying is one of the things that made our moms great. See our moms were super flexible with the truth, and we think it was that uncanny ability to make even the rainiest situations rosier that made us grow up into advertisers, people who make reality pretty.

Lies our mom’s told us

Is Your Mom A Liar?

If so, thank her. Those lies are why you believe you can be anything you want to be as long as you work hard enough. She is why you hate injustice and understand the difference between right and wrong.

This Mother’s Day tell your mom you’ve come to see she kept the scary parts of the world from you long enough for you to fall in love with life’s potential. She allowed you to dream, imagine and hope. She lied a lot. And you love her for it.
