Mother’s day is a time to dedicate to mom. It’s a time to show her how much she means to us and to spoil her rotten.
But how do we actually show mom just how much she means to us?
Generally we think we have to go running to the shops to find the perfect gift. It often seems that showing people we care is associated with monetary value. The bigger the gift the more we care.
Surely there has to be a better way? I think there is!
The answer is to share positive love affirmations.
The Greatest Gift Is A Love Affirmation
One of the things I LOVE about the parents and friends group at school is that they organize pop up shops for mother’s and father’s day. All these gifts are under $5, but the kids love spending time choosing their gift, and receiving them is just as special.
Do I care that only $5 was spent on me and not $50?
The little gift along with a hand drawn card and special craft they have made, means way more than a flash new necklace or spa pampering voucher.
Don’t get me wrong, I would absolutely love those too, but my husband can buy those gifts for my birthday. I don’t need or want my kids to be spending that kind of cash for mother’s day.
But then it occurred to me. As we grow older, we somehow associate gift giving to be taken to a higher level. Now that I’m a 40 something, I’m supposed to spend more money on my mom.
But am I?
We spend less time with our parents as we get older. This is only natural as we are spending more time with our own families. So what would our parent’s really like to receive from us?
I’m pretty sure that they want to hear that they are special.
They want to hear that they mean the world to us.
They want to hear that we appreciate everything they have done for us.
Most importantly, they want to hear that we love them.
Do we really ever say it enough?
These love affirmations are what us mom’s really need to hear. Whilst it would be lovely to wear a beautiful new necklace, those love affirmations will stay with us and help us know that we are on the right track.
Just because our own mom’s might now be in their 60’s or 70’s, it doesn’t mean that they don’t need to hear those love affirmations any less than we do as a mom of young children.
