I always have mixed feelings about mother’s day. I love the initial thought of celebrating mothers, and showing how much they mean to you. But, after I think about it a little bit longer I start to think that Mother’s day shouldn’t be restricted to one day. Why should it when they devote themselves to us and care for us every single day? Shouldn’t we, then, celebrate them and appreciate them every single day in return? I’m not saying there should be a cake and gifts every day, but doing little things for your mom throughout the week is something I think should be done. Cleaning up the house a bit, making sure to ask how her day was when she gets home, offering to help with dinner, sending letters or cards randomly. Little things like that that show her she’s special every day. Because in reality, she is. And she deserves to know it.
Our mother’s day was pretty tame. Usually I try to plan something and spoil her, but due to finals being the week before, and the long distance boyfriend coming in town the day before, I was swamped. Not to mention, the day was overtaken by my brother who, due to a full time job and the possibility of working late on his birthday which was Monday after mother’s day, asserted that we should celebrate on mother’s day. Like a combined celebration, ya know? So unfortunately I did not get to spoil my mother like I wanted. But I plan to in the near future. Because she’s the best mother I know.
