Mario Barrett checked in with his Twitter followers (@MarioSoulTruth) a day after Mother’s Day, talking about the holiday, moms and his mother. The 25-year-old, currently readying his fifth album ‘Restoration’, writes:
Mom’s you are blessed to have another day in your honor. #MarioMondays is dedicated to YOU today. lol
On Mother’s Day, I paid very close attention to the world around me & consciously observed how we all celebrated our mothers. #MM
It was interesting to see what changes and additions took place in honor and preparation for celebrating moms. #MM
the grocery stores dedicated an entire isle for cards, flowers, chocolates and hearts with “MOM” printed on everything. #MM
Intersections of street corners were flooded with people selling flowers and teddy bears who could barely speak english. lol #MM
Bouquets & stuffed animals were doubled in price every store used the holiday to brand a product and solicit business. #MM
every store used the holiday to brand a product and solicit business. “get mom an oil change for Mother’s Day! 20% off” lmao
but on the day of Mother’s Day, only one thing mattered: Mother’s around the world were thought of, remembered. recognized, and honored.
I did something very personal for my mother that is just between her and I that made her feel special and loved.
Don’t ask me “what?” lol… I said it was personal ;-)
WHAT DID YOU DO FOR YOUR MOTHER?
How did she react?
I can’t tell you how special my mother really is to me. #MM
ya, we have had our bullsh** but at the end of the day, my mother did all she could in her power to help me succeed..and still does #MM
one of my most memorable memories with my mother is so silly but it’s “ours”. #MM
We would get in the car together & harmonize to “Mary Had A Little Lamb” lmao. The first time I was about 9. #MM
If you have ever heard my mother harmonize you’d be surprised, her ear is on point! #MM
