This year is flying by guys! Do you have a gift for your own momma lined up? Because gifts for your own mother are deeply personal (or should be!), I thought it would be fun to talk about ways you can treat yourself on this special day. So much of the time, even on this special day, moms don’t get to hear how amazing they are! I know that for many moms, motherhood is a thankless job – because she is expected to be all these things to her family, her efforts can go unnoticed. I’m so thankful for the support I have, and I hope that all the moms reading this know I’m thankful for them too! We have to support each other :)
This Mother’s Day I’m thinking of my own mother, and all my momma friends too – those that are by my side offering up tips and advice, a shoulder to cry on, countless laughs and endless support. They all deserve a little something extra on this day.
Moms, don’t forget to treat yourself this year! It’s never too late to get yourself a little gift of appreciation – not only for all that you do, but for all that you are. These gifts can serve as a reminder of your hard work throughout the year and how much you love what you do – like a ‘balance’ necklace to inspire happiness, relaxing bath soak, and pampering lip balm you hadn’t allowed yourself to splurge on – and more. Isn’t My Quotable Kid journal such a nice way to record the joys of motherhood too? It be a fun pick-me-up on a stressful day.
Do you have any Mother’s Day plans? If you don’t, I hope you’ll celebrate all that YOU do!
Today is Mother’s Day. It’s a day to celebrate the woman who brought you into this world, and in many cases, praise those who raised us in a loving, but tough, family. My mom did a wonderful job with us kids. She believed in us, she kept us in check and she made me realized that anything is possible.
Not until having Aden did I truly understand that level of shared love. She would say that you won’t understand until you’re a parent–there is no love like that between a mother and her child. And how right she was. There isn’t a heart big enough to contain all of that love. As mothers, we would walk to the end of the earth for our children. We want to protect them, nourish them and guide them into greatness. And I know for me, it changed my life–I love being a mom for these reasons:
1. Seeing the world through my son’s eyes. I don’t take the simple things in life for granted.
2. Learning the vast amount of LOVE the human heart can give.
3. My son’s hugs and kisses can change my day for the better EVERY time.
4. I’m a completely different person. I’ve changed for the better.
5. Having children has given me a new perspective on life.
Aden has reached the age where he is starting to verbalize his wants and needs and while it can be trying, there is no better joy than seeing my little man love and learn. Soon I’ll be able to share that same passion and support with my daughter.
Happy Mother’s Day to my Momma Darlene, my Sis Tia and to all the mommies out there. Enjoy your well deserved day.
