If you’re like my kids, you want to cherish mom with lavish gifts throughout the year. By the time you are able to afford to buy gifts for mom on your own, instead of the help from dad, you’ll realize mom has all the basics she needs. However, you still struggle to find her that perfect gift and hope to outdo your brothers or sisters.
And when you present that gift to her, she will be thankful and say you shouldn’t have. Because really, if she wanted that gift, she would of gone out and bought it herself.
Now there are a few gifts your mom will be truly great-full for and they may not cost you a dime. These are the gifts she longs for so desperately.
The number one gift all mothers want is to see her children together with her celebrating the occasion at the time. She wants to see them smiling and chatting and catching up on their individual lives. She wants them to put any grudges they have toward each other away and cherish their time together as a family.
I have always told my children, friends come and go, but family is for life. Family is connected together by blood. Yes, families will quarrel and say hateful things to each other, but we do come back together. In the time of need, a family member will never turn you away.
Instead of buying your mom a gift she really doesn’t need. Use the money to help your brother or sister who may be having financial difficulties. That would be the best gift you could give mom.
So the next time there is a celebration with mom, bring your good humor, a smile, and your mother’s children. She will be the happiest mother on earth.
