Mom quite literally brought you into this world, so it’s no wonder there is so much attention put on these lovely ladies today.
She created, nurtured and formed you in her womb (with a touch of help from dad) and gave birth to you. The process continued, only this time in her arms, from a young babe to the person you are today.
Think of all the diapers she has changed, all the spilt food she has cleaned up, all the meals she has slaved over, all the laundry she has folded, all the beds she has made, all the toys she has cleaned up, all the tears she has wiped, all the boo-boos she has kissed and all the words of wisdom she has shared.
There is so much to be thankful for when it comes to moms. Whether it’s your real mom, surrogate mom, aunty, grandma or special lady in your life, today is the time to show them how much you care and appreciate all they do.
But like giving thanks only on Thanksgiving, putting mom on a pedestal doesn’t have to be just a once-a-year occasion.
It doesn’t mean you have to shower her with gifts and pamper her everyday (although it doesn’t hurt to do it more often). Lending a hand in the kitchen, whether you live at home or come by for visits, not only gives mom a bit of a break, but it’s an opportunity to bond with mom and create treasured memories.
Doing something unexpected like fixing that squeaky tap or weeding the garden is another nice chore that will make mom’s day, any day.
But most of all, telling your mom how much you appreciated all she does is the best gift of all. And one that shouldn’t just be saved for today.
