Mothers are strong independent women who nurture and care for their kids. They carry the responsibility to watch over someone else’s life, which you can imagine is not an easy task. Every morning, they have to wake up knowing that they have to set a good example for their kids. Mothers always have to be there to support their children, never really getting days off, providing them with food, clothes, entertainment, comfort, a good education and love.
THIS week’s article is short and sweet. I remember the many times my kids say, “Thank you, Mom”, with the warmest and tightest hugs, after getting them a Starbucks drink or buying their favorite cookie. I’m grateful when my kids ask, “What time are you coming home, Mom?” and when I say I’m on my way home, I hear a big “Yay!” And when I have a lot on my mind, I’m grateful my daughter knows it’s the best time to give me the tightest heart-to-heart hug and my son cracks his wittiest jokes.
I ALWAYS say that, yes, your mother will appreciate the gift of love on Mother’s Day or other special occasions—but she will also love, absolutely, something that isn’t practical or sensible. If you’re already working or have your own business, then it’s time to give your Supermom a gift aside from that homemade card that you usually give her.
