Even though he didn't like some of the things his mom said and did, he knows she did them out of love, and just wants to show her that now that he's grown, he understands now why she did the things she did and that he appreciates her for doing them, and that he loves her for sacrificing herself the way she did. Even when she was on drugs, she still tried to provide for her children, and he understands that. He loves her for everything she's ever done.

Thnx tupac for these song, peace up there.
I just wanna say that I love this song even though me and my mom don't have a very good relationship I still have love for her. This song gives all these hard workin moms the recognition that they deserve they go to work all day then go home and take care of there kids they love dearly. If your a mama that works hard and know you take good care of your kids then I just wanna say you are the best mom in the world! Never let anyone tell you any different as long as you know your doing good then just believe in your self and keep up the good work!
