Moms and Mother Figures Always Care for and Comfort so Many. Now it’s Your Turn to Comfort Them.
Making her feel loved, appreciated and supported doesn’t have to clean out your bank account, but it might require some sincere thought and a little time and energy on your part. Not too much to ask for, as she’s arguably one of the top three most important people in your life.
Here are four meaningful ways that you can show the special moms and mother figures in your life that you really care:
There are so many ways that you can tell your mom how much love her and how much she means to you.
A simple text message works, but a hand-written card is even better. Perhaps a phone call will touch her heart from across the miles, or even a hand-written letter with a real stamp mailed through the actual postal service.
If your mom’s got some tech-savvy in her veins, and you can’t get to her home for whatever reason, schedule some FaceTime on your phones or Zoom session to tell her verbally why you love her.
And, of course, the ultimate is to stand right in front of her and tell her, face-to-face, how much you love her. She just wants to hear it and would love to see it in your eyes, too.
When you take a moment to think about all the things that moms do on a daily basis, depending on the stage of their lives, you’ll come up with a lengthy list of ways that you can serve her, letting her relax and giving her a break.
She, like you, has a lot of mundane, sometimes unpleasant, tasks that she’d love your help with. Here are just a few to get your service muscles pumping:
Change out light bulbs or light fixtures.
Clean her bathrooms.
Sweep and wash her floors.
Clean out her pantry.
Vacuum out her car.
Pull some weeds, plant some flowers/vegetables, prune her trees/bushes.
Your mom and special women in your life love to relax and enjoy some pampering. And, who doesn’t, really. Whenever you can help your mom unwind and indulge in some self-care and comfort, it goes a long way.
She loves when you bring something unique that soothes her soul, especially if it’s something she’s never experienced before.
Here’s where Cariloha’s soft and sustainable bedding, bath and apparel come into play. Not only do they feel luxuriously soft to the touch, but they’re also guaranteed to make her feel comforted and relaxed. Sleeping in the bamboo sheets or wrapping up in a bamboo towel after a bath could be a life-changing experience for her – one she’ll truly be grateful for.
Imagine her getting the best sleep of her life (too bad it wasn’t sooner) or spa-like treatment at home – extra points for giving her service and comfort on the same day!
And last, but not least, give your mom a great big squeeze, making sure that you’re both free from any sickness of course.
Try hugging her for at least 20 seconds. That’s when the really good endorphins kick in, and her brain, heart and soul will be filled with your genuine love for her.
A big hug from you is more powerful and meaningful than almost anything else you could do for your mother.
And, here’s a final parting tip, don’t let this Mother’s Day hug be the only one you give her all year. Get in the habit or, better still, promise her that you’ll be giving her hugs on a more regular basis.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful mom’s out there!
