For the women who always had the best sense in…. everything!
Here are 5 ways we can all thank our Mother’s and Caretakers this Mother’s day!
Who doesn’t love being pampered with plush luxurious items? The perfect way to thank mom is just by saying STOP! Let her relax and let’s appreciate all the things she does in our lives. A day off can be anything from breakfast in bed to a day of pampering at the spa. If she/ you opt for a spa day, make sure that women receives a massage. For all that she does this truly is hands down the best way to relax. Don’t worry if you can not afford a huge 5 star getaway, even simply receiving a new robe, candles, and some plush slippers will put a smile on anyone.
The second classic way to thanks our favorite women is by getting them out of the kitchen, let’s cook a meal for them once. My mother always mentions (and it’s absolutely true) food prepared by someone else always tastes better. So is this why we love fast food?? I digress… so don’t worry if you aren’t the next Julia Childs, the easiest meal to cook is breakfast. Scramble some eggs, and some toast and jelly, a half slice of grapefruit and you have yourself a perfect heartfelt meal. Now however if you happen to be gifted by the culinary Gods of the world, make that women some dinner. Food brings people together, it is a universal way of showing love and compassion and is one of the reasons why people bring food to absolutely every occasion, new home, new baby, new jobs! Food brings out memories and the best in everyone, not to mention mom will have the night off!
Flowers, flowers flowers! I can not begin to express. If anything the women who gave us all life at least deserves some fresh blooms. If you know her favorite flower then its an easy trip to your local Trader Joes or market. If you can’t quite remember, then pick a flower that describes who your mom is.
Roses: classic, beautiful, lovely
Calily: delicate, strong, and beautiful
Sunflower: intricate, whimsical, free spirit
Or if we truly want to bring back some old memories, pick some fresh wild flowers(if legal of course) and if anything you can tell mom that you know now she deserves more than just dandelions.
A perfect keepsake memory is photos! Every mom loves carrying and displaying their loved ones to well just about everyone. Give mom one of your favorite pictures together. What is really popular currently are photos that show transformation. So, find a picture of the two of you when you were young, then one of you now. Put them side by side to show just how much you have grown together, in love, and in life.
If all else fails. What every mom needs is just to hear “I Love You,” so maybe you forgot, maybe you are a million miles away. Call your moms and caretakers. Tell them thank you. Tell them how much you love them. Sometimes is hard to see just how much they do in our lives, how much they contributed and made us the men and women we are today. We love you mom! Thank you for everything.
Happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there!
Be Clean, Be Happy, Be Healthy
