Every year we celebrate the women who put their own needs aside to take care of others. The women who are our chauffeurs (sorry, mom!), chefs, cleaners, tutors, shopping partners, and best friends. That’s right, we are talking about moms!
Our question is, why wait till Mother’s Day to celebrate these strong, sacrificing women? They show love, care, and compassion towards us every day. We should return the favor with love, care, and respect just as often.
Think back to a moment when you were having a hard time and all you wanted was your mom. The natural comfort that comes from a mother is the best cure for the blues. For every hug, or rub on the back, it’s like a transfer of love and support that makes everything right with the world.
Now think about a time where your mom did something to help you. You may not have appreciated it, or noticed it at the time, but you do now. Maybe she made you eat your vegetables, or didn’t allow you to get that Bugs Bunny tattoo. Mother’s are always there sculpting us, and helping us grow. They have an uncanny gift for knowing when you’re making a mistake, or not doing what you should. It’s hard to see it in the moment, but mom’s are always there guiding and protecting you.
So if you haven’t already, make sure you show your mom how much you appreciate her this weekend, and every day. Try sending her some some flowers, taking her for an afternoon lunch, splitting a real Hershey’s® Ice Cream milkshake with her, or just giving her a big hug!
Mother’s do so much for us, it’s time to let them know how we feel. What do you love most about your mom?
