What Does Mom Really Want On Mother’s Day?

Mother’s Day is this Sunday and card stores are busy, candy counters are packed, florists are getting calls and stores are selling gift cards.

No one really knows what to get mom on Mother’s Day. She is such a vital, important part of our lives, and nothing quite seems good enough to buy her on this special day.

So, what does Mom want for Mother’s Day? It is really very easy to figure out what your mom wants…watch her for a day and see what makes her smile, what means the most to her. Does she love candy, going to the movies, plants, pictures, when you make your bed, when you get along with your siblings, or when you simply spend time with her and show her how much she means to you?
I think we say I love you in a somewhat of a flippant way these days. Have the words “I love you” lost some of the special pizzazz? I was brought up with the notion that love is an action word. It’s about showing, doing, and being with that special Mom on Mother’s Day. Love is about putting other things aside and making your Mom a priority, not just one day of the year but everyday. The greatest way to love someone is to give them attention and be there with them in good times and bad.

I miss my children; they are all grown and live in various cities across the country. I am blessed to have such wonderful children and value the time we spend together. I love little reminders of them around my home. I keep cards up on the windowsill, I keep little notes they may have written years ago in drawers and pictures are everywhere.

This year for my birthday, they all pitched in and got me a plant of the month so I receive something from them every month. Don’t get me wrong; they call, email, and send cards… but I still miss them.

So, if you ask Mom, “What do you want for Mother’s Day” and undoubtedly she will want your time.
