Being a mother is a 24-hour job. From the morning to night, all task includes the things that mothers need to get done for the family or the kids. Little time is spared where she can do things for herself. Her time is occupied with the constant workload of sorting the laundry or doing the dishes. Cooking the food for children and family so when they come back from home, they find delicious meals waiting for them at the table. And the cherry on top, quarantine has only increased the work and responsibilities of women in the household. That little space of time they got for themselves, is now pre-occupied with kid’s activities. All they need is reassurance and recognition for the work they do all day long. If you are someone who is looking for cheering up a mother, here are 10 things you can say to brighten up their day.
Tell Her You Love Her:
There is no better feeling than acknowledgment. Mothers do not verbally express their love, but they show it in the tiny to huge gestures made for the family.
If one day, the laundry is not sorted out, it can be a hassle for everyone in the house. She gets all the family member’s laundry’s done, cooks meals for them, does the dishes, cleans the house, and makes it a homely place to live could be super tiring. To tell her that you love her is the best gift you can give to her. She long to hear heartfelt acknowledgments from the people she has dedicated her life to. So, if you think telling her that you love her will be a good shot, then go for it! Make your momma happy!
Bring Her A Rose:
Flowers are another great way to show compassion, gratefulness, and love. You can pick a beautiful, fragrance-full flower to gift her as an appreciation for all the things she does.
Do Not Wait for Special Days:
That is correct! Waiting for special days and only wishing her well on Mother’s Day, is really boring and quite mainstream. Make her feel special every day, and it is better if you don’t wait for an occasion to make her feel special. Unexpected plans are way better and impactful. On any Mother’s Day, your mother might already suspect that you must be planning something nice, but she doesn’t think like this every other day! Surprise her and be creative.
Choose your day wisely!
You are Loved, Mom!Every mother adores hearing these magical words. Love is something that enables people to go to every milestone and achieve whatever they desire. If your mom desire to get through the day, make sure she does it happily. All the things that mothers do for us are the sign that shows how much she loves us. She has lost herself, her individuality in the sea of gathering happiness and comfort for the family. The least children could do is make her feel loved even when she is at her lowest.
You Are Doing Good, Momma!:
Working without appreciation becomes very dry. Just like any office job, not being able to receive appreciation and acknowledgment for the hard work that you have put in by your team members, can discourage you big time. It is easy to ignore if your environment changes from time to time. How it is for mothers? They live in the same house, work in the same environment and do all their basic life activities under one roof. This could become hectic and mentally drain a person. Saying words of appreciation to your mom in a day or two, will make her feel confident and do better. She would not feel invisible anymore. She would feel seen, acknowledged, and encouraged. Little words of appreciation can go a long way. Acknowledgment is the kind of power that goes beyond our imagination.
Ignorance is Bliss:
For the moms who are new in motherhood, can relate to the massive amount of unwanted opinions and comments they usually receive. There are no good formulas for being the perfect mom. Every mom finds what is best for her and the children. It is beneficial to tell your rookie moms that it is completely okay to ignore those who only spread thorns on their way! Ignorance is bliss sometimes, and it can do wonders. Reminders for moms; old or new, to continue doing what they are, and rock the world with their charms!
“I Made Something For You!”
This phrase can entirely illuminate the world of a mom! When making something new for mom make sure she is surprised by it. When she would know that you spent the time and efforts on making something for her and that you thought about her, it would light up her world and there wouldn’t be anything more she’d ask for. She would love it so much that she will proudly put it up on the fridge for everyone to see. You see, mums don’t fancy luxuries, as much as they adore these little actions. A gift full of love and consideration can go a long way.
So, all my young readers out there, make sure you surprise her on a day when there is absolutely nothing to be surprised about. Do not make her wait, go now and show her how much you adore and support her. Moms do be the best gift for us. Let’s make every day a Mother’s day!
