A simple pink carnation…
Green plants with pink flowers dotting the arrangement….
Pink construction paper folded with a note scribbled by a child…
These thoughts fill my head when I think of Mother’s Day.
Having lived in Taiwan for a few years another thought has come to mind…Mother’s Day Ads.
Yes, ads selling cakes and cookies at the convenience stores, restaurants having special Mother’s Day meals, and other places offering whatever for a good price for your mother. It’s like Christmas for the Mom’s only club, which is great if you are a mom and if your family goes for that type of thing.
I’m a mom, but my kids don’t get into the “buy mom all the great deals”. Do they love me? Yes. Do they appreciate me? I’m pretty sure most of the time. Does my husband not care and love me? He cares greatly and loves me way too much.
Why not go all out and get me the works? Because I don’t want all of that. I’d much rather spend time with them. In fact my favorite Mother’s Day was just a few years ago when they didn’t buy me a thing. Instead, my husband planned a day at the beach. He had a picnic packed and we left early before traffic. We were the only ones on the beach and it was perfect.
Sand in my toes…
Those are now my newest thoughts when someone mentions Mother’s Day to me now.
