Latinas Are Sharing Appreciation Posts For Their Hardworking Immigrant Mothers And We All Need Somebody To Lean On

When it comes to strength and parenting, we all know that Latina mamas have it on lock. The best of our parents teach us how to be fully functional and kind human beings. Who are also capable, strong and eager to give back to the world and our own communities. Full of gratitude for the mother figures in our lives, Latinos on Twitter are already showing their love for their mamas and abuelas almost a full month before Mother’s Day! Now that’s enthusiasm.

Check out some of their experiences and words of praise below!

Because so many of us could sing the praises of the women who raised us.

And it takes a lot of strength to me a mother, particularly one who is an immigrant.

Thank you also to our mothers for ensuring we came into this world with good lewks.

And for teaching us that no matter what to work hard.

Because it’s never just a game!

There’s a lot to love about our abuelas too. Because whether they are with us physically or in spirit– feel their presence.

So here’s to you mamas and abuelas!

Thanks for everything!

A Latina Seamstress To The Stars Is Going Viral On Twitter After Her Son’s Mother’s Day Post

Updated: May 11, 2020.

If you were on Twitter, Instagram, or TikTok for Mother’s Day, you know that Latinos were out and about flexing about their love for their mamas. While many of us opted to share words of love and throwback photos of our beautiful madres, some decided to celebrate the labor and hard work their mamas have done over the years to get us, their kids, to where we are now.

While many of these posts got attention, none captured our hearts quite like this one created by Twitter user @MrAcosta89.

In a series of images shared to his Twitter account, the self-described “son of immigrants” from Ecuador shared that his mother is in fact that seamstress behind some of the biggest red carpet moments in celebrity fashion.

That’s right, according to Acosta, he’s blessed with a mother that has dressed the likes of Lupita Nyong’o and Riri.

Now after a bit of digging, we were able to find that the dresses, which were worn by Lupita Nyong’o, Saoirse Ronan, Millie Bobby Brown, and Rihanna were actually designed by Calvin Klein. But, whose needle and scissors poured over every seam? This mama’s! What’s more all four dresses continue to be praised and highlighted by fashion magazines like Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue. Even to this day.

No doubt, this Latina is pretty incredible, and just about everyone who saw the post thinks so too.

Just about everyone praised Acosta for highlighting the hands that made these iconic dresses.

And so many Latinas vowed to one day achieve such celebrity status so that they could also hire his mother to create their dresses.

According to Acosta, his mother has lived in the United States for over thirty years.

And while she’s apparently not really interested in learning English or being a social media star, she is getting quite the following online.

Updated May 11, 2020. @MrAcosta89’s mother’s name is Jenny Malo.

If it wasn’t for her telling you this a million times, you would get sick from the flu much more often. She is the best medicine anyone can ever ask for because she is smart.

And if you were raised by a single mom, here’s a card she will love and appreciate.

“Thank you for being my mom. Thank you for being my dad. Thank you for being my world.”

These people are the most important people in your life. They will always make sure that you are okay and have everything you need, even it is just emotional support.

After so many years of raising you, today is the day that you can thank your mom for all of the amazing qualities you’ve learned from her along the way.

Remember, patience is a virtue. What you never knew was your mom was spending all of that time trying to teach you that patience was a virtue and you kept failing.

So. many. qualities…

When people compliment you on how polite and well-mannered you are, you can point to your mom.

Even if you gained these qualities the hard way, you can still thank your mom for her tough love.

You have common sense and thick skin. Thank your mom.

After all, everything she does, even if you don’t always like it, is because she loves you.

If she didn’t get you in trouble so often, it would mean that she didn’t really care. So every time she yells at you, just remember: she loves you.

So now you can show her how much you appreciate her care and support.

If it wasn’t for your mom pushing you, you would’ve given up instead of working harder.

You can also remind her that you’re the one amongst all of your siblings that she loves the most.

She knows you’re her favorite. 🙂 After all, you are the only one who really behaves and she told you so.

Or you can keep it simple, and let her know how much you love her in four short words:

But to be honest, there really are no words to describe how much you love your mom. She is your best friend, life coach, shoulder to cry on, and biggest cheerleader. Take a moment to let her know how much you love her.
