How long has it been since you told your mother that you care. When was the last time you told her how appreciated and loved she is and how indebted you are for her round the clock selfless love. You don’t really remember, right? Then, today is the day. Mothers are easy to please; they tend to find happiness and content in little things of life. We take her for granted and her every effort she puts in making our lives so much better. But then she must not forget that only a mother can give you so much and yet ask for nothing in return. In fact, she forgets your anger and negligence and forgives you for every that time you have hurt her. So, this is our one chance to tell her that you may not express it often, but you do know that life without her would have been a complete hell and that you love her for everything she has done. This Mother’s Day, treat her to her favourite luxury, one’s she never thought of taking because she was busy taking care of you.
- Give her a day off- She goes through the day doing millions of chores without complaining. Give her a day off from her duties. Make her sit and watch her favourite shows without being bothered about anything. Try and cook for her, her favourites. It will be a pleasure for her. She would know how much she is valued, and you would know that it isn’t an easy task to cook perfectly every single time like she does. This will just cost you your time and energy and not a single dime.
- Gift her health-Get Mother’s Day fruit basket delivery at your doorstep accompanied by exotic flowers and a Cake. This is easy but trust me she would love it more than anything. It isn’t the gifts; it’s your love and care that reflects in each of those. Expressing feelings are always easy; you just have to take out some time from your busy schedule.
- A movie date- If she loves watching a movie, take her out for her favourite one, just two of you. Make her feel special and appreciated. Let her see how proud you are of her. Give her your time and attention. After what she has been through for you, this is the least she deserves.
- Relive memories- The most cherished things for your mother are her memories of you two together. She remembers every moment of your growing up, be it good or bad. Collect as many pictures of you and her together and make an album or a collage or a movie and got through it together. Make her tell the stories related to each one. You will be amazed at just how much she remembers.
Gifts need not be costly for being valuable, especially when it comes to mothers. A personal touch just does the magic for her. This Mother’s Day, gift her something that she often craves for- your time and attention.
