A mother and daughter are having a conversation while waiting in line at a bank the day before Mother’s Day.
Daughter: Mom, can we have dinner at your house tomorrow instead on Mother’s Day?
She said with hesitation and a smile on her face.
Mom: No, I want to go to a really nice restaurant once a year.
She said softly and gently with a smile on her face too.
Daughter: Are you sure you’ll be OKed at the restaurant with five grand-kids with you? They will be running around the restaurant like little monkeys.
Mom: Yes. They will be just fine. I want to see all my grandchildren at a nice restaurant on that day. I love them all so much.
Daughter: OK, Mom.
Sometimes, we focus on wanting things to go our ways so much that we might forget the important reason why we celebrate Mother’s Day.
If you love your Mother so much, will you do whatever she wants?
As a mother, do you have every right to demand what you want on your special’s day?
Regardless of what your answers and circumstance are, as long as everyone is happy, then Mother’s Day is well spent together. That’s my belief.
Do it because you want to honor your mother sincerely and with love.
And the best plan to celebrate her special’s day to ensure that everyone is happy…Keep it simple.
The less complicated the plan and things are, the most joyous your mother and you would have.
If we have to stretch yourself (or our budget) on Mother’s Day just to brag about it that we did something for her or you got gifts from your children, then the celebration, love and happiness is fake.
We know better deep in our hearts when it comes to dealing with sincerely emotions.
However, sometimes, we just have to put in more effort than normal for our mothers because she has gone above and beyond to make things happen for us.
My mother always says, “There are 365 days per year. We can go out to eat any day. It doesn’t have to me on that day. Make every day of our days together be the happy days while we can still eat and alive. That’s Mother’s Day celebration and gifts for me.”
As most mothers, she always says she wants the best and well-being for her children. She doesn’t want her kids to spend unnecessary money on her.
My family is blessed and are very lucky to have our Mother in this life time, to say the least.
Happy Mother’s Day to mothers and fathers who are doing the heavy duty as the mothers too.
May you have what you always wanted.
