People Are Messaging Their Moms To Show Their Appreciation After Reading This Tweet

"Every single day, I think about this."

When you're young, it can be hard to truly appreciate how much your parents do and care for you. As they set boundaries and enforce rules, it's not uncommon for their kids to lash out. And, even if you don't get upset at them to their face, we've all had moments where we could've treated them with just a bit more kindness. 

But hindsight is 20/20 and when people become adults or have their own children, they realize their parents are everyday superheroes. 


Nineteen-year-old Amelia Holjencin was recently video chatting with her mom while away at her first year of college when she came to this conclusion. She was having a tough day and her mom helped her feel better about it, so she took to Twitter to share her feelings. 

"Do u ever just realize that your mom is a living breathing angel and feel really bad for being mean to her when you were 15?" she wrote on Tuesday

It's safe to say the answer is "yes" for many people considering the tweet has been shared over 112,000 times, and has more than 359,000 likes in just a few days.

Many said they can relate and feel lucky to have such an amazing mom. Others pointed out how important it is to appreciate your parents while they're still around.

Other people were inspired to tell their mothers they also felt this way. Many took a screenshot of Holjencin's tweet and shared it with them.

So, why not let this tweet inspire you to do the same? It's probably a good time to pick up the phone and tell your parents how much you appreciate them, too.
