Becoming a mom made me realize one thing, it’s a never ending job! When I was young, I always thought that celebrating Mother’s day is not necessary for I will always show my love for her even when it’s not the special occasion. Which is true, by the way, but the extra appreciation and affection you can receive from this day made me feel that my role is special and even more incredible.
Giving birth is a painful act every mom needs to go through just to see us, deliver us safely and let us see the beauty of the world. From an innocent baby, our moms would raise us even if they are clueless themselves and learning on the way. Every night, our cries kept her awake but never did she turn her back from us, she has always been there to console us. She would buy all sorts of baby things for our needs, hold us tight to keep us warm, feed us to keep us from being hungry, stay close with us in places new to us, and teach us until we grow old enough to live on our own. But even when the day comes of moving out and getting our own place, they’d never stop worrying over us.
It’s not everyday that we remember to let them know how much we love them and show them we appreciate them. So on this special time, it is a great opportunity to take some of our time to do just that.
We’ve taken our moms for granted too much that sometimes we need to reassure her that we love and appreciate her. There are simple ways on how to show your love to your mom.
3 Best Simple Acts on How to Show Your Love to Your Mom
1. Giving “affections” to show they’re remembered.
Let’s face it, us ladies like to receive some “love” and moms are not an exception. For the boys, treat your mom how treat and courted your lady! It’s a nice gesture to give your mom a simple thoughts such as giving chocolates and flowers. It doesn’t even need to be expensive. A simple thank you or I love you cards, poured with all your thoughts and love, are enough to put tears on your mom’s eyes.
2. Spend your time with her.
As we grow old, we tend to have our own little world that we live in. We have our jobs, we find a partner and eventually live on our own. We sometimes become busy that we forget to let your mom knows how you’re doing and check on her as well. But in all those times, not a single moment did a mom forgets her child. So this is a great time to take some of the time off to go home and spend some time with her, update on each other. You can dine out or have a simple family get together on your parents’ home. This is a great time to take a break from our busy lives and do some catch-ups.
3. Say it, don’t just show it.
Even if you are unable to do the first two, the most important thing to do is tell your mom how much you love her. Sure, you may casually say “love you, mom” when leaving the house or ending the phone call with her. But this time, make sure you mean it and let her know how she has done a great job in raising you. So prepare a tissue on the side, a simple yet really meaningful I love you will put a tear on both of her and your eyes.
These are just simple ways that you’re probably already aware on how to show your love to your mom. But sometimes, you just need to be reminded to take action, so this is your reminder!
On my own, I managed to do all these three in one day. And I’m sure you can too! My mom invested so much time and hard work to raise me. And even up to this point that I also have my own family to care for, she never stops worrying over me and still see me as her little star. I’d probably be the same with my own angel as well. But there’s one thing I promised myself, that when my mom grows old and weak, she’ll be like my baby and I’ll take care of her as much as how she looks over me and just like a how a mom takes care of her child.
