Being a mom is often a thankless job. Mother’s Day is the perfect day to let your mom know how much her dedication and support means to you. Let her know how much you appreciate all she has done for you through the years by taking some time to get to know her better. Face it, your mom knows you pretty well whether you like it or not. But how much do you know about her?
Try out a little game with your family based on information about your mom’s life. Make up little cards with questions you have always wanted to ask her, but hadn’t yet. Ask questions like: “What was Mom’s favorite musical group when she was a teenager?” or “Did Mom go to the prom?” or “Did Mom have a celebrity crush when she was a kid?” Let your mom see the questions beforehand in case there are some things she doesn’t want to answer.
Sit your family altogether in a room and ask them the questions to see who gets them right. Your mom will have a good laugh when she hears your family’s interpretation of her life. And you might find out some interesting facts that you never knew about your mom. It will be a fun day for everyone!
The most important thing about Mother’s Day is spending quality time with your mom. Even if you do not live close by, you can still use the magic of modern technology to get in touch with her – phones, Facetime, Skype, etc. can all help bring you close with you mom this Mother’s Day. You don’t need to buy elaborate or expensive gifts to show her you care. Just SHOW her you care. Let her know that you appreciate her and all she does for you and your family.
