I have written poems about this subject, written stories but none of it will have been as affective as this video.
Please watch it and pass it on and if you are one of these people, take heed, you maybe missing the biggest opportunity of your life.
In fact I was out riding my bicycle yesterday and a guy was on the footpath with head down reading something on his iPhone, I saw him but he did not see me and when I gave him a shout he almost wet himself with fright. I had to laugh though, the shock on his face was so funny.
Mothers Day is coming up quickly so the family needs to get their heads together and think of some things to make her day very special.
I know my favorite Mothers days were the one where the boys did something special. I loved getting breakfast in bed. I loved that they went and picked some flowers even if they were Bougainvillea and prickly. I loved that they hung around for the day instead of dashing off with their friends. It is really those little things that make the day special. It makes it memorable. We often went for a picnic on the beach, it was one day of the year that they really did make me feel appreciated.
On the other hand sometimes they feel that they need to buy or make something and that is ok too.
Here are some suggestions for inexpensive ideas.
1. Coupon Book;
The kids might like to cut out paper in the shape of coupons and write a promise on them. Example being, I will do the dishes in the evening for a week. I will massage your shoulders for 30 minutes. I will clean your car. Keep my room clean for a week.
These coupons can be made into a booklet type form. Cashed in by Mum at any time.
2. A Wall Hanging.
Make a wall hanging in the shape of a heart. Color it and frame it with sparkly things or whatever you think makes it pretty and say I love you.
3. A Poem.
Hand print on a nice pretty paper a poem to your Mum. Write something straight from the heart.
4. Get a photo frame.
Find a picture of something you have all done recently and frame it. You can make frames from anything. Cardboard with your drawings on it, like flowers,stick on bubble wrap, sprinkle glitter on cardboard frame. There are many ways to make a picture frame at little or no cost.
6.Take Mum to the Movies
Use Pocket money to take your Mother to the movies. I am sure she will love it. Spoil her with popcorn
7. Magazine subscription
Get a 12 month subscription to her favorite magazine. That gift I find is well received.
