It’s no secret that moms never get to clock out.
Every day, it’s a nonstop whirlwind of wiping noses, feeding mouths, and giving hugs and kisses. Diapers give way to band-aids on boo-boos. Bus stops and homework gives way to curfews and driving permits.
And yes, it’s wonderful that we set aside a day every year to celebrate moms, grandmothers, and mother figures in our lives. But what about the rest of the year?
Want a thoughtful, surprising way to thank your mom (or any mom!) for all they give of themselves day in and day out?
Give a mom a bonus Mother’s Day, complete with chocolate, flowers, and a card.
They’ll never see it coming, but they’ll feel all kinds of special inside. A little appreciation and encouragement goes a long way.
Maybe this will inspire more ideas:
- Give a bonus Father’s Day to a dad in your life
- Create your own holiday for a grandparent, aunt, uncle, etc. to appreciate the influence they have in your life
- Celebrate a neighbor “just because” with a cup of hot cocoa and a smile
Did you try it? Do you have other ideas for appreciating moms by showing love just because? Please share in the comments!
