Mother’s Day is just around the corner and we always struggle for the perfect way to show our moms how much we love her. She tirelessly devotes her love and time to our family never ceasing even though we are grown. She treats our son with more generosity and care than I could hope for and there is only one day a year to celebrate all that she does for us. It should really be called Mother’s Week…
This year was my first full year to be a mother, and although I can’t get ready in the mornings without interruption, I can count all the meals I’ve had while sitting down on one hand, and I’m pretty much guaranteed to have at least one small stain somewhere on my shirt each day, it has been the most rewarding year of my life. My heart explodes with joy at the sight of my smiling babe’s face each morning and he fills me with the energy to carry on another day.
I hope that you all take the time to celebrate your mother, no matter what type of relationship you have with her. I know some are harder than others, but despite everything our moms deserve a day of thanks. Maybe a gift certificate to a spa day, a beautiful bouquet of flowers just to say I love you, or even inviting her over for a meal that you have prepared for her could show her more love than you could imagine. But if you’re more the gift buying type here are a few ideas to make shopping a bit more easy and unique to your mother.
There are so many customizable items out on the web right now and last year we gave my mom a phone case with our baby boy on it which she loved and got compliments on all the time. No better way to keep your phone protected than to have your smiling babe or grandchild on there! I also love the new throw pillows from Shutterfly, and secretly want a couple for our home. Their modern designs are hard to choose from, but would be adorable with our family photos on them.
I am always searching for a great wreath, as I find myself being very picky on door decor, but this living succulent wreath stole my heart. I would love to have it hanging on our door.
I hope you all take the time to celebrate your moms on May 11th and let her know how much you care.Comment
