These "thank you Mom" videos will make your eyes sweat


From inspirational to downright funny, these videos are all worth watching and sharing. Most importantly, remember to make a fuss over your mom this Mother's Day... and thank her every other day of the year.

Every year P&G makes an inspirational "Thank you, Mom" video. This year, the theme is "Strong". Some of the previous campaigns, especially the one for the 2014 Paralympics ("Tough Love") and 2014 Winter Olympics ("Pick Them Back Up"), are especially stirring. Watch the latest one here:

Comedian and magician Blake Grigsby, with millions of views on his YouTube channel, took to a campus to ask fresh years about their moms. They end up calling their moms. Magic indeed.

This one is hilarious! If you don't mind the f-word (it does get beeped out).

Online store made this beautiful video. I must admit, these kinds of "inspirational" videos always make me feel guilty, as if I should be doing all of this cuddling and catching all the time. But I'm pretty sure I did a lot of it when my babies were babies. I'm just going with this.

More schmaltz: Hallmark does what it does best. 

Lastly, just to make sure you don't get your hopes up about the day, Ilovebeingamommy shows what Mother's Day can be like – looks pretty much right.
