Being a mom is not easy. Imagine having to juggle everything in your hands everyday for 24 hours. From taking care of us to preparing our meals and buying everything we need, our moms deserve all the love not just this weekend but every single day. If you want to have a sneak peek at what your mom goes through every day, go over these TV and movie mothers' lives and you'll know just how difficult but rewarding motherhood is. Don't forget to wish your moms a happy mother's day today!

You may question her ways, but the demanding Editor in Chief of Runway always has her kids' best interests at heart—no matter what the cost. She knows what they want and need, and makes sure they get it. Remember when she asked Andy to get her a copy of the Harry Potter manuscript or else she's fired? Or that sad moment when she was concerned about how her girls are going to take the announcement of her divorce from her husband?

 2  Lorelai Gilmore, Gilmore Girls

She became a mother at the young age of 16, fled from her family home, and worked her way up to become an inn-owner. Lorelai may be juggling a lot of things in her life, but she makes sure that her daughter Rory gets everything and every bit of time she needs. She's willing to drop anything and everything once Rory calls for her. No wonder Lorelai is not only a mother to her only girl, but also her daughter's best-est friend.

We can't even imagine how difficult it must be for Mrs. Lancaster to go normally about her days while taking care of her sick daughter Hazel on top of everything. She may not have much, but she makes sure Hazel has everything she needs which is why when she has to tell Hazel that they don't have money for Amsterdam while on the verge of tears, we were heartbroken just like her.

 4  Claire Dunphy, Modern Family

The boss of the Dunphy household knows how to deal with things—from her daughters' secrets and crushes to her only son's geeky issues, Claire is prepared to face them all. People (even her kids, sometimes) may hate her ways because, duh, what Claire wants, Claire gets but behind everything you know she's just doing them out of love.

 5  Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, Modern Family

Like Lorelai, Gloria also started out as a single mom to Manny. But what made everything more difficult was that she was in a foreign land and doesn't speak their language well. We can only imagine how it must've been hard for her to find a job and raise her family. What's admirable about this Colombian mom was how she never stopped despite the odds and used all her experiences to be the best mom she can be for Manny.

She's mother to smart and hilarious twins Annie and Holly. That alone sounds crazy! Liz's chill is her strength because even if everything and everyone around her is in a state of panic, she is calm and remains to be the voice of reason—except maybe when she was about to meet her ex-husband for the first time after 12 years.

 7  Lily Potter, Harry Potter

She sacrificed her life for her son Harry, and remained beside him even during the toughest of times. Need we say more?

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
