Breaking News – The Real MVP is Named!
by Susanne Taylor~
Obviously, if you are reading this blog you have an appreciation for sports and in almost every sporting competition an MVP, Most Valuable Player, or a Champion is declared.And today that is exactly who we would like to discuss, the Real MVP.
For there is no heart greater than that of a mother and she is the champion that is behind us all. It seems only fitting that with all the progress that women are making today in so many important areas that we honor all women with this Mother’s Day tribute.
Thus, we at inPhorm are declaring the most valuable player, the greatest champion, the true MVP, Mom!
Mother’s will go to no end to sacrifice for their children. It could be something as small as not eating her meal serving so there is plenty for the rest of the family to eat or something much greater like working multiple jobs to support her family. There are very few Mothers I know that would not, without hesitation, give up their life to save their child.
And since inPhorm is all about women’s athletic apparel, let’s discuss how many moms sacrifice so their child can play in athletics…be it financially or simply sitting outside in sub-zero temps to cheer the child on…they are sacrificing with absolutely no expectations of anything in return. And then there is the whole, “I almost had a heart attack,” factor. Because as a mother of athletic children, I can tell you firsthand that you are a nervous wreck watching your child compete. So, in one way Mothers risk their own health by supporting their children and this is certainly not limited to athletic competitions.
I have taken the liberty of collecting a few photos of famous Moms with their athletic children that I think would back me up on all of this. I hope you enjoy them.
There is also a super fun website that lists a trivia quiz on 10 famous Moms. Here is the link: www.funtrivia.com/submitquiz.cfm I scored only 8 out of 10.
Take this 5-second quiz. It’s fun. And let us know how you score by tagging inPhorm on any social media platform you prefer with #MomMyScoreIs followed by the number.
Here is a little additional trivia regarding Mother’s Day and the day as defined by Wikipedia:

And while we at inPhorm cannot compare to Paul McCartney’s tribute song to his Mom, “Let it Be,” or compare to Brahms’s, “Requiem,” we can tell you that we HONOR all women and motherhood.
