Have you ever thought about which Mother's Day Gifts a mother would like?
Stop for a moment and consider the questions. Let's assume that you had a normal life. No major horror stories about being abused, neglected, beaten, etc.
Just a simple, normal life like most of us have. You were raised by a loving mother who tried her best to give you the best she had to give. Sure she probably yelled at you and sometimes even many times probably unfairly. And she may have punished you unfairly sometimes.
And sometimes you may have felt as if she did not understand you one bit.
But in the end; after the final analysis you matured and realized that she did everything out of love. All the good things together with the mistakes were all driven by her love for you.
And now you are wondering how you can acknowledge her. Appreciate her for all that she means to you. And do it in a way that is sincere, meaningful, and touching.
Because you want to touch her. Because by now you probably are very aware of how she touched you; helping you become the person you are today which in many ways you may not be pleased to be but for the most part you are glad you are alive.
And if you are turning to the internet for some ideas, boy do you have a challenge. Because you notice how commercialized the celebration of Mother's Day has become.
Thousands upon thousands of pages all advertising flowers, gimmicks, gifts, etc. And that's all and good. I mean it's fine to buy something for your mother.
But just about everyone of them fails to start at the beginning. Here's what I mean.
Before you look at one more site; one more page about mother's day take on this simple but powerful project.
Every day for the next week take 3 minutes (at most) in the morning and 3 minutes (at most) in the evening right before bedtime.
And reflect, remember, think,meditate on the moments you remember the most about your mother. Write down a few words about the feeling that comes up each of those times. Eventually you will connect with the essence of what your mother means to you.
Then go ahead and decide what you want to do, or buy, or get for her. Whatever you end up doing will be infused with the feelings, emotions, and memories that you want to celebrate your mother for.
Happy Mother's Day.
