Hey there! Hope all is well. For today’s hang out, I want to chat about showing love to your mom and celebrating her while you still can.
If you’re blessed like me to still have your mother in your life, every day should be Mother’s Day! No, I don’t mean you have to buy flowers, candy, or gifts 365 days a year, but you should be showing some type of honor to your mother in some form or fashion. Appreciation may look different for everyone, depending on your time and your money. Still, everybody should be able to do, say, and give something to show recognition to their mom regularly.
Maybe all you can afford to do is spend time with your mom. Perhaps that time is over the phone, via FaceTime, Zoom, or it’s in-person visits. You may be a person with a healthy financial status, which allows you to purchase more quality gifts or send your mother on vacation. There is also an option to pick up flowers just because, whether they are $4.99 from your local grocery store or $99.00 from a well-known florist. No matter the cost, let your mother know how much you love and adore her.
As much as we don’t want to accept or even think about it, eventually, the day will come that our moms must leave this earth. I don’t want you to have regrets about all the things you didn’t do or say to your mother. Maybe your relationship hasn’t been the easiest to maintain, however, I challenge you to get things in order now. Even if your mother is not the typical mom, figure out how you two can make amends and build your connection. I can’t imagine my life without my mom. Therefore, I really want to stress to you how important I believe it is to work on you and your mom’s relationship if it is not healthy.
Not only do I plan to recognize my mom more often and show my gratitude for who she is and what she’s been to me and done for me, but I also get to be extra with it on this day. Today is my mother’s 66th birthday, and I get excited as if it were my own! It’s almost like my day too. Think about it…if she hadn’t been born, neither would I, so it’s OUR BIRTHDAY! Just as my birthday is hers also. Hey, we can celebrate them both together, every year! You get what I’m saying! I’m ecstatic about this year’s birthday because I’m gifting her with something I know she will cherish. It’s not costly at all, but it’s going to mean a lot to her. I would share what it is, but there’s a chance she may read this post before I make the delivery. I’ll tell you this, it’s something simple yet unique, and she’s talked about it for over a decade.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAMA! I LOVE YOU!!!
Until next time, I’ll leave you with this. Put more effort into showing your mom how much you value her. Express that to her as often as you possibly can. I’m incredibly thankful to still have my mom not only alive but she’s also healthy and doing well. I will continue to show her how much I love and appreciate her! We talk often, and I visit occasionally. I try to never end a call for the evening without letting her know I love her. I don’t know when it’s the last time we’ll hear each others’ voices, so I want to make sure she knows how I feel about her. I urge you to do the same. How do you show your mom she’s valuable, loved, and appreciated?
