This year Mother’s Day falls on 9th May 2021. Mother’s day is supposed to be a day where you celebrate a mother’s contributions, love, and million other things she does for her kids.
While we all are geared up to celebrate Mother’s Day with a bang, we must also give a thought as to why celebrate Mother’s Day only once in a year? Is one single day enough to give back all the love and care that our mom has showered upon us till now? No right? According to my, each and every day must be Mother’s Day. Each and every minute must be dedicated to our beloved mother. Each and every second, we must strive to make our moms smile from ear to ear. After all, what on this earth is more precious than a mother’s happiness?
Curiosity urged us to debunk the origin of Mother’s Day and this is what we found –
Mother’s Day is observed as a special day honoring motherhood that is observed in different forms throughout the world. The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. Jarvis would later denounce the holiday’s commercialization and spent the latter part of her life trying to remove it from the calendar. While dates and celebrations vary, Mother’s Day most commonly falls on the second Sunday in May and traditionally involves presenting mothers with flowers, cards, and other gifts.
Our mothers constantly work for us without any leave all throughout the year, so isn’t it our duty to acknowledge her efforts and care and celebrate each day as Mother’s Day?
We dedicate one day for celebrating every mother and their existence, but what happens #ADayAfterMothersDay? We are back and settled in our busy schedules after putting up messages on social sites, taking her out, making food for her, spending time with her – all in one (mother’s) day.
The real question is celebrating her kindness, her love, her compromises, her pain, all her hard work she puts in to make you a better person and what you are today, in a day. Is it enough?
For all mothers, each day is important and equal. They celebrate all our joys, achievements and even manages to give their shoulder in times of our sorrows. They are our 24 hours ATM – Any Time Mom (available) giving their unconditional love and attention when and where we need.
Our mothers deserve more than a day to make them feel special and important. And as they say, better late than never – do something special for your mom today and every day.
Make you mommy feel special
1. Make everyday chores easy for her
Our moms do so much every day – cooking, washing, cleaning after you, etc. – all this without any help. Imagine the smile on their faces when you help them in cleaning your rooms, chopping veggies, making your bed, putting clothes in the laundry, and the regular day-to-day household chores.
2. Support her every time
Nothing is bigger than moral support extended by a child to her mom. So, whenever you find your mom to be sad or upset, make sure you are always there to help her. Sit next to her and extend your moral support. This will surely boost her confidence and make her feel better.
3. Compliment her
Tell them she is a wonderful cook, tell her she makes your life easy, tell her that you receive compliments in school, college and office because of her hard work.
4. Tell her you love her
You would not hesitate or think twice about saying this to your girlfriends, boyfriends, friends or lovers. So why hesitate to say it to your mom.
5. Cook for her
Be it a simple tea/coffee or a three-course meal, cook for her or at least try and that itself will make her heart fill with delight.
6. Take her out
For a movie, shopping, food, spa; she will learn to enjoy out if you give her the time and patience. You can also avail of these services at an unbelievable price using marvelous Mother’s Day discounts and offers.
7. Chat about your life
She feels connected, involved, and good if you just talk to her. She would not necessarily have the exact words you want to hear but trust me you will feel content.
8. Get her gifts
Though I’m sure most moms crib about us spending money on her or generally on gifts. It is alright to get her gifts that she needs or will just cherish having.
9. Do what she likes doing in general
Even if it means watching a daily soap episode with her once in a while and asking random questions like you are into it. She will love it, I assure you (from experience).
