Like many holidays, mother’s day has become a huge money maker. Mother’s day gifts including jewelry, candy, flowers, and dining out have made this a great holiday for businesses. As with other holidays, we need to remind ourselves that mother’s day is not about giving gifts, it is about giving appreciation and becoming closer.

Young children especially make mother’s day worth celebrating. As mother’s we should feel grateful that we have had the opportunity to be mothers because some women have to work very hard to become a mother. Men should honor their wives during this time and remember sitting in the labor room watching their wives perform the ultimate gift of life.

While you are out shopping for your mother’s day gifts remember that what ever you get her she will like it. Flowers, candy, balloons, and jewelry are common gifts around mother’s day. However, you can make uncommon gifts out of these items with a little imagination.

Again the point of mother’s day is to let her know how much you appreciate her. However, this doesn’t have to be done by purchasing or creating the perfect gift. In fact, it doesn’t even take perfect words. All you need to do is speak from the heart and let her know that of all the things she has done in her life, one of them was being a terrific mother.

If you don’t get along with your mother, use mother’s day as an opportunity to put your arguments aside. The fact is you don’t choose your parents, but also don’t choose how much time you have with them. Don’t risk regretting today’s actions when your mother isn’t around any more. In fact, after someone passes on, we tend to forget all of the matters that seem so urgent right now.
