Yesterday, I got this drawing from Tamar, my daughter, as mother’s day is just around the corner. Coupled with a very wet kiss she suggested the two of us celebrate on a girls’ day out.
Needless to say I was deeply touched by her attention. I looked at the drawing and thought how easy it is to make your loved ones happy.
Now that mother’s day is here, many of us tell ourselves; “Oh, my mom couldn’t care less about such things”, “Mother’s day is outdated” or “I’m too busy”.
Sometimes we really believe a certain ritual, ceremony or gesture is not important to us. However, when an act of kindness is surprisingly offered to us, we are nevertheless touched.
I urge you to take a moment and do something. It’s worth it.
It matters what you do but it’s not the most important thing – and it doesn’t have to be a gift. Spend time together (no text messages or social media shortcuts allowed), write a note, pick a flower in the garden or just call and say “I love you”.
Happy mother’s day!
