Celebrating Mother’s Day With Your Son
The greatest moments for a mother are when you see your children learning, developing and succeeding. After all, mother is someone who seeks the best in her children even when they drive her crazy. May every mother enjoy this occasion since this moment of happiness comes after lot of sacrifice, devotion and patience.
Kids of all ages plan different ways to celebrate and honour their Moms again this year on Mother’s day. It is a pleasing and deeply personal holiday as each son lets his mom know and feel how very special she is.
This year why not make extra effort to ensure that Mother’s Day will be special for both you and your son.
Remember, your son is an adult and has his life of his own, often filled with time restraints and responsibilities with his own children. He would not know specifically what would make you feel loved and respected on this particular day. So, allow him to surprise you of honoring you.
Make your son feel that he owes you something because he is grateful for what you have done for him. Do not martyrize yourself and expect them to fawn over you, you won’t be disappointed. Holding back your demands will give him the opportunity to give to you his genuinely – out of the goodness of his heart, with sincere love and caring.
It is tough to be a perfect mom, but if you have supported and loved your son, respected and cared for your son then you deserve to celebrate the day. Being a Mom is the toughest job you will ever have. So pat yourself for doing a great job. It is a good day to renew, improve your relationships with your son and make them the best they can be. Make Mother’s Day a great day of love and appreciation-not only for yourself but for others as well.
Pick up the phone and call your son. Thank him for giving you the opportunity for the life changing experience of being his mom. Let your son know how proud you are of what he has become, how much you value him and what a treasure he is to you.
Think of your own mother-or someone else who has been an inspiring parent. Share with your son their beautiful characteristics. He will admire your stories and the legacy she has handed down for you and the world.
Talk to your grandchildren and let them know how much they contribute to your life. Find ways to become a better grandma and more personally involved with them. If you are lucky enough to have your grandchildren with you, sit back and enjoy and count your blessings because so many mothers won’t have that joy this year.
This is your day. Plan a great one with your son doing most of your favorite activities. If you miss that anticipated Mother’s Day call from your son, you can call him back later. He will be happy knowing you have a rich, full life of your own.
Mothers love spending time together with their family and all the extra hugs, kisses and appreciation on Mother’s Day.
