Mother’s Day can be seen as just another opportunity for marketers to create a need for people to buy more stuff, so I understand why many people don’t celebrate it. However, life is busy, and a reminder to slow down and show your mom how much you appreciate her is an opportunity not to be missed! I appreciate my mom all the time, and especially so now that I’m a mom. I have a new appreciation for the level of sacrifice and labor of love that is motherhood. We have started a tradition of getting my mom a meaningful mothers day gifts; something that reflects how much we appreciate her. Most of us don’t need more stuff, but I don’t know anyone who gets tired of feeling appreciated!
