Instead of having a Mother’s Day gift guide this year I decided to do something different to show the women in our life we love them. I have compiled a list of things you can do throughout the year to show the strong woman who brought you up that you love and care about them. First off don’t forget to call them on Mother’s day, they’ll be sad if you don’t.
As someone who didn’t get their mom many gifts growing up I like to do nice things for my Mom now that we’re both older, have a better relationship and I appreciate her more. I cherish my mom for the things she did for me growing up. Mother’s day isn’t about gifts, it’s about recognizing the women who brought us up.
My Mom is someone I can tell almost anything too, she’s always there to listen even if she hasn’t experienced what I have. My Mom worked and made sure to encourage me to go to school and finish and she was the proudest at my each of my graduations.
