I instructed my family...
"Please do not buy me anything for Mother's Day"
And although my family gives really great gifts,
I honestly have more stuff than I know what to do with right now
More stuff is not what I'm feeling.
I've received my fair share of...
catered dinners and
homemade breakfasts galore
But I do not want any of that this year...
And I realize that maybe some mothers do want
an exotic vacation
or a day trip to the spa for a facial, mani/pedi, and a hot stone massage
but I can guarantee you that is not what they really want either...
And whether your mother is living or not,
you still have an opportunity to give your mom what she really wants for mother's day
So what does Mom really want for Mother's Day?
(hint: it's the same thing she has wanted since the day she found out she was expecting you...)
Mom wants the BEST for YOU!
full gestation and smooth delivery
She wants your growth, maturation, and continued success
What Mom really wants is for you to...
try hard and
conquer great things
so that even after she
are long gone from this planet,
the world will have been made a better place
because God used her
to do something
by having you!
