You’re a mom, so what do you really want for Mother’s Day?
You know your kids (and maybe even your husband) are doing internet searches on what to get you. Will those searches return answers that really fit you? Will they remember something you said you liked several years back? Does it even matter? Are you one of the mothers that finds delight in emotion rather than material objects?
I am one of those matronly mothers now and I don’t feel like Mother’s Day really applies to me this year. I am still a mom, but the kids are all grown and on their own. Sometimes I am really excited when I think about the fact that I am an “empty-nester”. It is in these glorious years when you get your life back. You can finally cater to yourself and your spouse. It’s the time for creating new memories and living again before your health fails or you can’t get around as well anymore. I should be happy, right?
Mother’s Day 2017 has me thinking about how blessed I was to raise boys….a lot of them. The blessings continued with some beautiful girls the Lord allowed me to have for a bit too. Everyone is grown now though and none of them need me. Isn’t that the biggest part of being a Mom? Everyone needs you! You are the rock.
I found several great websites with many Mother’s Day gift suggestions straight from the intellectual minds of Moms. Many of them make so many wonderful suggestions, but I find myself just wishing I could be with the kids this year. I long for a day with all the kids together at one time. I wish I could hug them all at once (although my arms are way to short for that).
Anyway, please enjoy the recommended Mother’s Day gifting solution below:
