Saying Thank You To Mom On Mother’s Day


It’s  Mother’s Day 2018!  When I think back to honoring my mother on this day we always had the homemade gifts we would make and I think as a mother of 6 kids those are always my favorite gifts.

I am a mother of 6 AWESOME KIDS and 19 GRANDKIDS. I feel so blessed as a mom and grandma. As they send me gifts I cherish everyone and they always touch my heart.

 I go and see my 88 year old mother every month. She is 5 hours from me but what an honor it is to take care of her in her aging years.

I think I have gotten to know more about her than I ever did when I was growing up.  Sometimes she is very frustrating but then I realize she is fighting to stay independent and that is hard when your sight is almost gone and you have a back that is way bent over with Scoliosis.

I remember when she had to get a NEW knee.  I went up to take care of her and as she tried to lay on her couch and I on the loveseat, what memories we made that night.

She grew up very poor and her mom died when she was only 10 years old. She taught me a lot growing up from putting me in 4-H, (won a lot of first place ribbons at the fair) piano lessons for 10 years, some singing lessons and always tell the truth.

This year with my siblings we wanted to get something different so we purchase an Alexa. She said she wanted someone to talk to, as my dad died 18 years ago. I really think she will love it.

Lets go out and Celebrate Our Mothers this year and really show them how much they mean to us.

Now lets talk about other ways to celebrate mom this year…..

Saying Thank You To Mom

Personalized Mother's Day Gifts

Mother’s Day is a special day where mothers all around the world are recognized and celebrated. The celebration takes many forms from house to house, and country to country, but for the most part it is a day where mothers get the chance to put their feet up and be well and truly spoiled!

I just came from visiting my dear mom who is now 86 and so bent over and almost blind. She is still trying to be so independent and wishes she could be years younger. It is an honor to be able to take care of her as she ages.

I have learned so much from her in her later years and she is a Wonderful Mother. Tell your MOM this year how much she means to you.

If you wrote your mother a message… Would she be able to find it?

 

Top reasons to celebrate Mom this Mother’s Day.

She wore your macaroni necklaces with pride to work, the grocery store and the mall.

She had a knack for finding missing objects such as your blankie, pet frog, retainer, lucky marble, homework, or belly button lint collection. Unfortunately she is still looking for the remnants of her mind, memory, and body that once fit into size 4 jeans.

She willingly baked five dozen cupcakes for the bake sale you “volunteered” her for, and which you told her about at 8pm the night before.

She is a human calendar, keeping track of every doctor appointment, birthday, anniversary, parent-teacher conference, field trip, play date, spelling bee contest, lesson, team practice, first word or bowel movement anyone in the family has ever had.

She put up with your “self-expression” years whereby you dyed your hair, pierced body parts, tattooed strange things upon your skin, wore strange clothing and makeup, and used the word “righteous” ad nauseam.

She sacrificed going back to work just so she’d have time to be your Girl Scout Leader, PTA president, field trip chaperone, and chauffeur to every sporting event or karate lesson you ever took.

Even when you were too upset to verbalize what was bothering you, she always knew exactly what was wrong based on the volume and urgency of your heavy sobs or the amount of boogers that ran from your nose.

She loved you even when you flushed her earrings down the toilet, set the living room rug on fire, practiced writing your letters in red marker on the living room couch, or used the contents of your diaper for wall art.

She has spent the majority of her adult years in two places: the kitchen and the laundry room.

She has never had a vacation, comp time, sick day or other “break” from motherhood, and even if she were given the opportunity for one, probably would never take one.

Remember to thank your Mom on Mother’s Day. There is no love that goes deeper or which transcends time and space more than a mother’s love.

The best gift you can give your mom is a heart-warming embrace, a kiss on her cheek, and a meaningful touch on the hand. Let’s not forget the three golden words to melt her heart―Mom, I love you― said with an equally loving gaze coming from the depths of your heart.

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”

― Washington Irving

Happy Mothers Day!
