Motherhood is the greatest thing and the hardest thing.” Ricki Lake

No greater gift exists than when you become a mother. The pain, hardships, and sometimes hurtful situations we go through for the hugs, smiles, and laughter are worth it. 

And while motherhood tends to be a pretty thankless job, mother’s day can certainly shine a light on the appreciation. That one day can rejuvenate us moms for an entire year. We focus so much energy on others that we sometimes forget that we are important and deserve some recognition, too.

Here are some simple, yet wonderful ideas to show your mama some extra love on her day:

  1. Homemade gifts: there’s nothing more precious than a gift from the heart from your baby or babies. I still have gifts my oldest (now 7) made when he was about 2. Seeing the effort and love they put into each and every inch of the present fills my heart to bursting with pride, joy, and all the feels.
  2. Breakfast (or brunch) in bed: I have yet to enjoy this little delight. However, the idea is not lost on me. As a mom, we get up early every day and provide the morning routine and breakfast. Give us a bit of a break for one day. You might even garner a tear or two from the thoughtfulness.
  3. Clean the house: I was able to hire someone to clean for a little while last year. What an amazing feeling to walk into a clean house and not having to figure out when to fit it in or sacrifice time with my family to do it. Whether the kids and hubby clean it or simply hire someone to do it, the emotional and physical burden being lightened that much, even for one day, will mean so much.

These are just a couple of examples of how something small can have a huge impact on the day to celebrate incredible moms. Give her big hugs and loves. Tell her what and how much you appreciate her. Take a moment to recognize the hard work, energy, and devotion each mom exerts on a daily basis.

I know it holds me through the tough days. To all you moms, I hope you have a great mother’s day and take a bit of time for you — read, take a bath, go for a walk, or take a nap. You deserve it! Post submitted by Jessie –

“I am a thirty-something mom. With two degrees under my belt and a virtual assistant business, I find mommy-hood to be the most challenging yet rewarding part of my life. Mistakes will be made, failures will happen, but why not accept those flaws, do your best, love with all you have and have as much fun as you can along the way?”
