The Gift of Gratitude for Mother’s Day

Mother and Daughter with Baby

What if, tucked in an envelope on top of the usual box of chocolates you give to your mother this Mother's Day, was something that would make this year's holiday truly remarkable and bring you even closer together?

It wouldn't cost any money, just your time and a tap into your memory and emotions. I'm talking about a letter, written by you, to express thanks to your mom. It's a gesture that is sure to be a highlight of all her Mother's Day holidays.

If you think you might be too old for this type of gift, let me tell you that you're never too old to thank your mother. In fact, if you are grown with children of your own, this might be the perfect time. You'd be modeling gratitude for the next generation, a value that's incredibly important to pass on to your kids. Plus, you now understand what it's like to be a parent and can relate to all she had to do to raise you.

So, before Sunday, sit down for a few minutes and write a letter to your mother:

Acknowledge the positive impact she's had on your life.

List out things she taught you that you will never forget and will pass on to your children.

Recognize the sacrifices she made to make sure you were always taken care of.

Be specific and be earnest. It doesn't have to be long or written perfectly. It just has to be written by you in an honest and loving way. Do this, and this Mother's Day will be one she will never forget.
