Life is way too short to appreciate your Mother only on Mother’s Day, this should be done all year round. In general, make her feel loved and cherished all the time with even the smallest gestures. Since moving back home after missing several Mother’s Days I love being around my mum and gran. They are both my pillars of strength, my sounding boards and they put up with my craziness.
During the years I lived abroad, I was fortunate to have crossed paths with some pretty amazing women – Renske, Justyna, Lara, Sahera and Viviene. These phenomenal women nurtured me, took me into their homes and provided me with so much love. Ladies, I appreciate you all and love you for all that you have blessed me with and continue to do over the miles.
Lara once told me about an Old African Proverb.
“It takes a village to raise a child.”
This makes so much sense, we all play a role in raising a child, even if the child is no blood relation to us. Looking back, I was that child that the village raised. Coming from a large extended Indian family meant I had a bevy of Aunts and Grans each nurturing me and spoiling me as I am the eldest grandchild of the family. Even now as an adult I still experience this love. I feel rather blessed to have so many phenomenal women in my corner looking after me on all levels of my life. Their lessons and experiences have molded me into the woman I am today and will remain with me for all time.
So yes, this Mother’s Day, let us appreciate the women of our tribe. Ways to show your appreciation:
1.Make that phone call just to say Hello and find out how your Mum is doing.
2.Visit her and take her a bunch of her favorite flowers.
3.Cook her favorite meal for her or even take her out for a meal.
4.Take her to the movies and let her pick the movie she wants to watch.
5.Make her a cup of tea/coffee, give her the TV remote and let her watch her soapies in peace.
6.Buy her a box of Cadbury Glow chocolates.
