Belated Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day has come and gone, it’s still okay to talk about how amazing our mothers truly are. Our mothers have been there since day one. From that very moment we took our first breath, our mothers were holding us in their arms. They were there for us when we fell off our bike and scrapped up our knee or when we passed the driver’s license test. They were there for us when we left for college and when we got our heart broken for the first time. Mothers are something special.

Thanks Mom

Sometimes you don’t realize how much your mom has done for you until you move away and are living on your own. Being a college student, you probably realized right away that no one was doing the laundry or cooking for you. No one was keeping the fridge stocked or making yummy after-school snacks. It’s amazing to see all of the little things that we take for granted once we don’t have them anymore.  So thanks Mom for everything.

It’s Never Too Late

Completely forgot it was Mother’s Day on Sunday? No worries, you probably weren’t the only one. Don’t just wait around for next year to come, instead make it up to your Mom before it’s really too late. Surprise your mom with an ice cream date or a thoughtful phone call. Just because the holiday has come and gone, you can still make it up to your mom by showing her how much you care for her.

More Than Just a Holiday

Mother’s Day is the perfect day to celebrate your mom and say thank you for all that she has done. However, Mother’s Day only happens once a year. It’s up to you to you to say thank you more than just on that one day. Show your mom how much you appreciate and are thankful for all that she has done for you. Send a thoughtful card or take her out to lunch on afternoon. It doesn’t have to be big, just something that makes her feel special.
