What Mom really wants for Mother's Day
At Kroger the other day while I was getting some balloons for a cake smash, I noticed all around the counter were strands and strands of balloons with "Happy Mother's Day," "#1 Mom," and the like. I passed the abundant supply of flowers and plants with signs pleading with me to not forget about my mom this mother's day and as it was fast approaching! Of course every retailer is set up in a similar fashion as Im sure you noticed this time of the year and being the amazing daughter I am I still have yet to decide what to give my mom for Mother's Day.
I asked myself what does mom really want? Would she want another piece of jewelry? A plant to take care of? A massage? Dont get me wrong these are all great things and I know she would love any one of them. But I was going for something more along the lines of timeless, treasured, and thoughtful. This is was I ask every year and that is why I usually come back to the same conclusion. Just about every year since having a job I always planned a girls spa day where we would grab lunch, get a mani/pedi/facial, and lots of quality time. I come back to this each year because I think that its these times that mom really treasures. I know I do! I love having a dedicated day where its just her and I and we get pampered and talk about life, hopes, fears, and laugh...we do a lot of that!
