Go ahead. Do it now. I’ll wait.
I was going to wait to post this until later in the week but I just don’t think this is something that should ever have to wait.
Because yeah, Mother’s Day is a good time to celebrate your mom. Take her out to lunch, buy her flowers, generally take care of her. But you should be doing that everyday. Because growing up, it was everyday that she took care of you.
Moms are so important. And before you jump on the comments section, fathers are important too. (Their day just isn’t this Sunday, that’s all). Moms make us laugh and wipe our tears and do stuff that we don’t want to do – just to help us out. (See vacuuming up spiders, making doctor’s appointments, and oh I don’t know, wiping our own butts.)
They deserve more than a day, but if that’s all that you have to give them, then make it count. Hug them, and kiss them, and tell them that you love them. Even if it hasn’t been awhile since they heard it. Even if it’s been forever.
And if you don’t have a mom, or your mom isn’t with you, or your mom’s just not a person you want in your life, hug a friend’s mom. I guarantee she’ll appreciate it.
