I figured since this is a special weekend for us moms, i would send out a personal email to all of you.
Many of our women in this group are mothers and of course we all have a mother, be it here or away resting in peace :-)
I pray that you are smiling, relaxing and being pampered this weekend. If not by a partner or the kids, then by YOU! Do something special for you too this weekend.
The main purpose of this weekend is to show love and affection to your mother/grandmother/care giver for what she did in your nurturing. Wether that be big or small. She did the best she could do - at the time. For this we MUST be thankful.
Where most of us are now, it is because mom strived effortlessly no matter the emotional pain she felt to help us on every stage of life, and even is she made some mistakes along the way, we as mother's and daughters also learned from those very mistakes - not to repeat them. So for that we must also thank her.
What makes mom smile?
Well mom loves flowers (which lady doesnt) however there are many other goodies that will put a smile on her face:
-take her to an instant picture booth
-take her to your favourite childhood restaurant, even if it was McDonalds and tell how happy it made you when she brought you there (this is what I'm doing)
-take her for a pedicure or better yet bring her over some snacks and personally give her a mini pedi and foot rub. She will LOVE it!
-Write her a personalized letter and place it in a beautiful frame
Please do not forget your mother's day gift. This does not have to involve money. You can even go over to her place and and prepare her favourite meal or bake her favourite cake in her kitchen while she does nothing...
How about picking up her favourite tea and going over for a nice chatt while you both sip - in no rush.
Mother's are so precious and if you are one, wrap your arms around yourself and give yourself a big hug because you ROCK!
Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!
My my favourite mother's quote:
"A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no LAW, no PITY, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path"Agatha Christie
