Whether you have a wonderful mother (or mother figure) in your life or you’re a pretty amazing mom yourself, Mothers' Day is the perfect reason to take time to appreciate the strong resilient women in our lives. But showing gratitude shouldn't be limited to a once a year affair. Big gestures can be nice but often, it's the little things that count.
When was the last time you told mom you loved her? Sometimes words don't come easy, and we often forget how powerful they can be. Take the time to write a heartfelt note or perhaps even pen a poem. It's not as hard as it sounds. Exhibit A: the haiku at the top of this post. 3 lines; 5 syllables, 7, then 5. Simple and sweet.
We live in a busy world. And sometimes we push time with our loved ones to meet deadlines, catch up with work/studies and just be an all round busy person. Put aside time (schedule it in if you have to) to spend some quality time with mom. Put down your phone and talk to her, go out on the town with her, take a stroll with her, really listen to her. Just be present, sometimes that is all it takes.
Skip the store bought bouquets and make one of your own. So it might not look as perfect but that's the beauty of it, as it is with so many things in life. We love the flower selection at Tiong Bahru market for its variety. Pick her favourite blooms, put in your favourite ones, bundle them with flowers that you love the meaning of. Put thought into it, because that's what counts.
Celebrate the most important women in your life (yourself included).
