Let’s be honest we all have been searching for that perfect Mother’s Day gift the last few weeks…….Right? or for some of the procrastinaters, the last few days huh? lol There is nothing wrong with that but I would like to point out something……….
Mother’s, fathers , friends, etc should not only be celebrated on holidays including birthdays or Mother or Father’s Day. We should be celebrating our loved ones year round, just because we can. We should celebrate them with our time, resources, a listening ear, or what ever else we can offer that they may need. Sad to say, and I am sorry I have to be the “party pooper,” but the truth is holidays are just made up so that various companies can make money off of us ! You agree huh ?
My point of this blog is not to bash holidays but just to remind people to check themselves and make sure they AREN’T waiting until birthdays and man-made holidays to celebrate and show appreciation for their loved ones! Also always keep in mind buying expensive gifts one or two times a year don’t necessarily mean you love someone. Love is so much more and so much deeper than materialistic things, and the sooner some of us realize that the better.
Despite the above statements I am keeping in mind that it is still Mother’s Day and I want to take some time to brag on my mum and our mother daughter bond/relationship. Like I continue to tell people in general no relationship is easy, it has its up and downs to it. No relationship is perfect, but I sure am thankful for my relationship with my mum.
As I grow I learn. I learn from the world around me and most importantly I learn from the person I spend lotssss of time talking to and bonding with…. my Mum. Me and my mother are two very different people to say the least and we see the world through two different lenses. I would say hers is a little more colored while mine is more so black and white due to various differences in our backgrounds & interpretations of the world around us.
I tend to be a bit more “sensitive” as some would say in my family while others look at my mum and comment on how “strong” & resilient she has been through difficult mishaps over the last 2 decades in her kids lives and in her own personal life/marriage(s).
Side Note: When God made me I believe he took pieces of…. ( Yes, I am aware about the chromosomes you get from both parents, just follow me here lol.) my mother and my father and put me together. As I continue to grow older I see more of my mum’s resilience in me, and the need to fight my way through troubles no matter how many times I have to fall, and also I see a very opinionated mindset meaning when I aim to do something nothing & I mean nothing will stand in my way. (So thank you for those great traits Mum, believe I need them along with YOU NOW more than ever) Don’t worry daddy I didn’t forget about you. The more I grow I see more of my dad’s relaxed humor and need to connect with others constantly in my personality. (Thanks dad, I may not be as funny as you but you know, I have my moments.)
I continue to remain thankful for all the good and not so good traits I received from my Mum and Dad! I guess you could say, I wouldn’t be me without them.
Now come on, of course my mom had her mind of what she wanted for Mother’s Day already and I was blessed enough to be able to do for her what I could but me being so extra, artsy, and let’s not forget a writer I couldn’t help myself but to make a collage. The collage has some pics of me and my mum to remind me just how awesome, beautiful, talented, honest (sometimes toooo “honest) and sometimes ”un” funny(🤣) she is. I wouldn’t trade her for anything though! Lol! I love today and everyday Mum !
I wish I had more pictures of my beautiful mum but it has been a while since I have seen her in person…. But I do have some embarrassing pics from us video chatting (seeing as we talk like everyday) I could have dug up & posted those pics but….nvm! Hope you enjoyed my blog! Also don’t forget, don’t wait until a “holiday” or special occasion to celebrate and show love and attention to your loved ones ! Do it everyday !!! Because why not ? Life is short . 🌹
As always thank you for reading and stay tuned ! & I just want to say Happy Freaking Mother’s Day to all the hardworking, beautiful, intelligent Mother’s who have raised or are raising children ! You deserve to be celebrated everyday for your sacrifices, patience, and your unconditional love for your families !!!!!!! XOXOX
