For most of us, our mothers are our heroes. They have carried us inside their wombs for nine painful months. They have taken care of us since we were born and even as adults, we always seek our moms for comfort and help. When we are searching for something in the house, we call our moms because they know where everything is. When we are sick, we ask for our moms because their warmth brings us healing. When we are struggling to get by, they are just a phone call away. A mother’s love is never-ending. That is why, every Mother’s Day, we make sure to give back to make them feel special and appreciated.
If you don’t have plans for Mother’s Day yet, here are a few ideas to help you out.
Greet them today. How often do we call our moms when we need something from them? And how often do we call them just to ask about their day? They might not show it, but they love hearing from us, especially on occasions like Mother’s Day. If we can’t be with them today, let us, at least, let them know we are thinking about them.
Do the chores around the house. Mothers should get paid for being mothers, but they don’t. Most people take stay-at-home moms for granted because it’s ‘not a real job’, but in reality, it’s the hardest one there is. Mothers can’t even catch a break! So, even just for today, let’s take the weight off of their shoulders and help around the house. Let’s give our mothers their well-deserved rest.
Pamper your moms. Take them to a salon or spa. Mothers don’t spend time on themselves because they are so busy taking care of us. So, let this be a day of pampering and relaxation for them.
Send her flowers or buy her stuff. If you can’t be with your mom on Mother’s Day, you can still make her feel special by sending her flowers. It can be other things too. Moms tend to put their kids first so they are okay with using worn out clothes, bags, or shoes as long as their kids can wear something new. On this occasion, let’s change things up a bit and buy them something they can use for themselves.
Take your mom out on a date. Most kids, once they hit puberty, don’t want to be seen with their moms. They think it’s uncool. But being away from them makes one realize how much they miss them. While we are getting old, our parents are getting older. Let us take a few hours from our busy lives to be with our moms. Our time is the greatest gift we can give them.
“Life doesn’t come with a manual. It comes with a mother.”
Thank you, Moms!
