Dollop love sprinkled with lots of care – that’s mommy for us. Carefully crafted by the almighty, there are distinctive features that mom comes fitted with, enough to make her different from the rest of us. What’s that special essence of being a mommy? Well, lets just say that a house is not a home without our mom, agreed? It’s not easy even for her to be stuck in different dilemmas each day, what is best for you (I mean her kids), be attentive to your needs, take care of the whole family and give each member the same level of care and love.
As kids, we may take her love for granted and don’t appreciate it the way we should but as we grow up we generally realise that moms are the best! And not just because she accepts us for who we are and loves us, but because she makes so many sacrifices for us without even letting us know. So, mother’s day is not just another day, you definitely need to buy her a Mother’s Day gift because I’m going to list down a few sacrifices ( there are endless) that every mother should be thankful for.
Careers for your well being
First of all, moms sacrifice their careers to focus on our well being. Most moms have done this and thus it is our list opener. She too was passionate and wanted to work in her dream company, and now that you get to follow your dreams, have you ever thanked her for such a big sacrifice? Even the most career-oriented woman you know makes changes for her kids.
Her sleep for our big dreams
Not claiming it as an obvious sacrifice, but having kids means less sleep. Welcoming a new member in the family requires a major life change and one of these bye-bye sleep so you get everything you need, on time. You know it’s true, a mom can never be thanked enough for all that she has done for us. She let go of her dreams without even showing a single sign of grief to you ever.
Put social life on hold
Where did your college friends disappear? Why did you miss your ‘kitty party”? Ask your mom these questions and get ready to listen to the lamest excuse. The fact is that she stayed in just to spend a little extra time with you. As kid, she understood how important it is to spend time with the little ones, so she was ready to put her social life on hold. Even now, if she senses you need her, she would do it again anytime.
Last piece of food
A full belly is a happy belly, that’s the motto our moms work on. So, she will make sure that you never ever go to bed empty stomach even if you are full. But I don’t know why this motto isn’t applicable to moms. You may not know this, but when you ask for an extra piece of bread and it magically appears, it’s from her plate. Our moms have time again sacrificed her last piece of food even though she might be still hungry. Would you do that for anyone? You know the answer very well. So, it’s likely the time you give her the biggest thankyou on mother’s day. Make it grand with your mother’s day gift.
Saved up for your future
Instead of spending big on herself, buying that Prada bag or Gucci perfumes, she saved up for your future.
These are big sacrifices that every mom should be thanked for.
