I’m a mother. If it were up to me, mothers would be celebrated all year long. We would be served breakfast in bed (waffles and champagne), be treated to luxurious massages, and be told how much we are loved. Every single day.
But that is not my life.
My life involves getting up to feed a baby in the middle of the night. Eating Cheerios while standing up in the kitchen. Figuring out how to love the toddler who is kicking you while screaming and having a tantrum about a toy that isn’t even his.
How about the mothers in your kids’ lives? Maybe the mother your family is celebrating this May 10th is a woman who selflessly carried your child in her womb for nine months. Maybe she’s the person who gave you the best gift of all ... a child.
Or maybe it’s someone you have looked up to as an inspiration for how to be a loving parent.
Whatever kind of mother you have in your life, give her a Mother’s Day gift that reminds her that she is appreciated not just today, but all days.
