A Most Special Mother’s Day
Sunday 13th May 2018
Every Mother’s Day I sit and think about how to really treat my mum.
I’m reminded about just how much I put her through as a kid. Her constant trips to the headmaster’s office, the pranks that scared the life out of her, and the continuous apologies to our outraged neighbours. I can picture clearly the time she sat with her head in your hands asking, “Why me?”
She taught me to walk and read and write and sing and skip and ride a bike and a million other things besides. She protected me and supported me and encouraged me. She made me laugh, and kissed it better when I cried.
My dear mother, she really does deserve a medal!
And so I think, what can I do to repay her for all of that?
This year, I asked Granny Mabel for her thoughts…
“Hey Granny Mabel, what can I do for my mum on Mother’s Day, to repay her for all those years she spent looking after me when I was younger?”
Granny Mabel’s response…
“Your mum doesn’t expect you to repay her. She doesn’t want anything in return. She’ll be delighted just to spend the day with you — for her you’ll always be her little boy. My advice is just to dedicate the day to her, and cherish the time you can still spend together. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to buy some flowers and take her out for for a special lunch or dinner either!”
As always, wise advice Granny Mabel.
