Mother’s Day is a day you get to show your mom (or the mother of your children) how grateful you are that she is in your life. Don’t waste the opportunity.
- If it weren’t for your mom, you wouldn’t be breathing right now. If nothing else, you should thank her for that.
- Mothers are the emotional backbones of the family. They provide the holding place for everyone’s feelings and do their best to protect us.
- Mothers have the magic touch (and kiss) to help us heal our wounds, physical and emotional.
- Truly, our mothers worked hard and made sacrifices, so our lives would be better. Let her know you appreciate it.
- Mothers are forgiving—so forgive her in return. Open your heart and drop your resentments.
- When you want to climb the tallest mountain, your mother will make your lunch. She will support your dreams when no one else will.
- Her boundaries made you a better person. You may not have liked some of her decisions, especially when you wanted to party with your friends, but she did keep you out of trouble.
- A mother’s ears and eyes hear and see everything. It’s nice to have someone with whom you can reminisce about your whole life.
- Mom taught you to be a functioning adult. Your mom may have forced you to do your homework, but now you see how important it was.
- A mother’s smile, when it is directed toward you, makes your day a whole lot better. Say thank you.
Make Mother’s Day special for her, and it will come back to you. There is something beyond words to express to the person who helped you to walk and talk, who gave you your first puppy, who helped you with school, and who gave you all the love she possibly could. Show her you care by acknowledging her value in your life. And if you don’t have your mom around, take someone who is like a mother to you out for brunch.
