What, exactly, does your mother know best? Have you ever told her? For Mother’s Day, The New York Times is inviting you to share instances — big and small — when she provided keen insight.
How often did she make the right call about your life, your friends, your romantic partners or your career? Did she recognize a trait or a talent in you that other people overlooked? Was her advice a little annoying but ultimately helpful?
Maybe you pushed back and now realize that she was correct. Or maybe you’ve always valued your mother’s wisdom.
It might delight your mother to know that she was right about a few things, but we’d like to hear about it as well. And if you have lost your mom, we would love to hear your memories, too.
