Well, would you look at that? It’s almost mother’s day again. It is a day to honor and show our appreciation for our moms for all they’ve done for us. Without them, we wouldn’t be in this world (obviously). We also wouldn’t get as far in our lives today if not for their support in our endeavors.
So, do you have something planned to celebrate this special occasion for your mom? No? Don’t worry, because we’re here to help you with that. In this article, here are some ways to make 2022’s mother’s day is the best for your mom, or yourself, if you’re a mother.
Prepare a Delicious Breakfast for Your Mom (or Yourself).
If you want to make this year’s mother’s day a memorable one, you’d better start the day with a bang. And what better way to do so than by preparing a delicious breakfast for your mom? Sure, it’s nothing flashy. But nothing is more heartwarming to your mom than having a hearty breakfast with you.
For moms reading this, why not take a backseat in preparing breakfast and instead teach your kids how to make their breakfast? Yes, this could be a messy and time-consuming activity, especially if this is your kids’ first time doing this. But it is also a great way to bond with your kids and help them learn valuable life skills.
Let Your Mom Rest This Mother’s Day.
As my mom used to say: “Motherhood is a job that has no salary, breaks, nor an end.” True, it is rewarding and satisfying, but sometimes it can be too much. Your moms may not say it directly, but even they need a rest, especially if they’re working.
So this coming mother’s day, why not give your mom a day off from all her worries? Instead of letting her do all the housework, volunteer to do it yourself so she can rest. In addition, try to avoid requesting too much from your mom this day unless it’s of utmost importance.
Moms, I know resting may not sit well with some of you, what with all the housework going to be unfinished. But think about it, giving yourself time to rest allows your body to regain its strength is better for you in the long run than overtaxing it right now. So sit back, relax and do the things you love, at least for one day.
Spend Mother’s Day Together With Your Mom.
Time stops for no one, and with how fast-paced the world is right now, it’s easy to lose track of time. We might not like to think about it, but the amount of time we can spend with our loved ones isn’t infinite. Your mom isn’t getting any younger after all, right?
In that case, why not take some time off your own busy schedule and spend it with your mom and family during mother’s day? Besides, mother’s day’s always on a Sunday, right? Use this opportunity to make up for lost time with them.
So, how should you spend the day with your mom? Honestly, it depends on you and your mom’s preferences, so long as the two of you are having fun. This can range from going to the mall together; to something as simple as having a movie night at home.
Give Your Mom a Gift From Your Heart.
For those looking for a more physical way to show their affection, why not give her a gift? Again, just like the breakfast you’ve prepared or how you plan to spend the day together, it doesn’t have to be expensive or grand. It only needs to be something straight from your heart for your mom to appreciate it.
If you want your gift to be extra special, why not make one yourself? And I’m not just talking about making an item for your mom. You can make something like a poem or a video as a tribute to all your mom’s efforts. For moms, mother’s day is the perfect time for you to buy that bag/jewelry/new cellphone you’ve always wanted. You deserve it, seriously.
Don’t Forget to Say “I Love You” to Your Mom.
Above all else, the one thing you should never forget to make this mother’s day the best is to say “I love you” to your mom. Yes, I know this sounds so cliche. But really, saying these 3 words means a lot to your mom.
That said, saying “I love you” is nice and all. But without actions to support it, it becomes hollow. If you want your words to be more meaningful, combine them with the other tips.
Have a Very Happy Mother’s Day!
With that, we are done! Here are some tips you can follow to make this year’s mother’s day the best. Do note that this isn’t a step-by-step guide. You can mix them up depending on how you want to celebrate with your mom.
