Another Mother’s Day is here.
To me it’s just another day, to many women who are Mothers out there it is a special day, a day reserved for them to be pampered and thought of and doted over. Well pamper them I say, but do it in a way that actually means something to them, not just saying “Happy Mother’s Day Mom, here’s some flowers” and walk away. Maybe spend some time with them while they are still alive, if not, remember all the times you had with Mom and talk about it to someone like a Brother, Sister, Uncle, Aunt, Dad, etc.
Honestly? My beef with Mothers Day is the over commercialization of it, as well as Memorial Day, Fathers Day,Fourth of July, Christmas, Easter, etc. Here’s a decent website that actually tells you things to do with Mom, where to take her, how one should admire and respect and love her, and gives tips like “Be thoughtful for your mom always and treat your mother like a princess everyday. That can be the most wonderful gift to your mom.”
Years ago, I used to buy Mom some flowers, but when one year she exclaimed to me “Mums are for the dead!”, that ended my flower/plant buying days, although I read where Chrysanthemums, or Mums can produce visual hallucinations. In today’s screwed up world, not a bad idea, eh?
Seriously, A Happy Happy Mothers Day to all of you “Mothers” out there, may this day shine upon you, bathe you in content, soothe your body, bless your soul, and release all your anxieties. Well it’s off to CVS to buy some Cards. Have a great day 🙂
