Mother is God’s blessing for us. She loves her children selflessly like no one else can. She is the most sincere person of our life. She is a friend, a teacher, a guide, a doctor, a psychologist. In short she is everything for her child and we can never return the same love. In today’s modern era, many of us don’t have enough time to express our love for her. Many just limit it to mother’s day. Many don’t even bother on mother’s day either. Every day of the year is mother’s day and we should love her, take care of her and make her feel special always. Mother’s day is a day to acknowledge and thank our mothers for everything she has sacrificed to make our lives better. One little gesture of ours will make her love this world and her life. I am listing down a few ideas for making mother’s day and every day of her life special for your mother. But don’t limit yourself to these few random ideas. Do what you feel like. Do what you think will be loved by your mother.
1. Bed Tea and Morning Breakfast
To start the day, make her bed tea and a morning breakfast which she would love. Go to her room and wake her up with a good morning kiss. Do what she does for you every morning. While serving that give her a tight hug or a kiss and smile that would keep her happy and energetic all through the day.
2. Never Shout at Her
Never shout at your mom. Make a promise to yourself that you would control your temper. You would love your mom in her old age like she loved you in your childhood. You don’t need to tell her that you are making this promise. Your attitude will tell her. And keep the promise.
3. Give Her Time
Give her gift of time. Talk to her, listen to her. She spent all her life taking care of you. She left her friends, may be her job too and now she has no one but you. Ask her if she is taking her medicines properly. If she prefers staying at home, stay home with her. If she loves watching movies or shopping take time on mother’s day specially and on other days generally to take her out for a movie or shopping. Just give her the time for anything she needs.
4. Buy Her a Gift
Buy a gift for her. It can be anything. It can be some perfume or jewelry or a dress or a pair of sandals. Anything she talked about randomly on the dinner table. Buy something which she needs and couldn’t find time to buy or didn’t consider her need important. No matter how ordinary it might seem to you, it will be the most special gift for her. But please remember one thing. A gift is just a little gesture. You make the gift special and important for her. She can go and buy it herself. So giving her a bouquet or baking a cake for her is just not enough. It’s your love which she needs the most.
5. Help Her With Household work
Help her in doing household chores and you can do this always. If she is doing dishes, you can place them in the cupboard. If she is ironing, you can hang the dresses. In this way both of you will spend time together and will talk also. She would find the work entertaining and not tiring.
6. Please Her
Do whatever it takes to please her. Probably this never came across your mind but even grabbing your books can make your mother’s day special. If she wants you to study properly then do so. If she thinks that you keep your room dirty, clean it etc.
7. Remind Her of this Relationship
Make her recall some childhood memories of yours. Show her that the relationship between you and her is the same. In fact let her know that it has got even stronger than before because time can only strengthen it.
8. Surprise Her
If you are far away take a flight and give her a surprise or send her a hand written letter telling her how much you love her. If you live with her, give her a surprise by enlarging a family picture and hanging it in her room
9. Apologize to Her
It wouldn’t be really hard for you to apologize on mother’s day even if it was on other days around the year and similarly it wouldn’t at all be difficult for your mother to forgive you on her day. If you made her angry or upset, ask for forgiveness. This won’t make you small but will strengthen your relationship.
10. Do What She Would Love
That’s her day. Think about what she loves and what she has wanted on other ordinary days. Make them happen and make this day special for your mother. Do anything that she has ever loved. Write a poem or a song for her. Or bake a cake for her, or bring her plants or pets or whatever she loves.
