What is the sweetest thing you ever did for your mother?
We often chastise ourselves for the things we didn't do, or feel it would be bragging to tell about some sweet thing we DID do. Since none of us here know each other in real life and since readers to our hubs probably don't read these questions, maybe it would feel good to tell about something sweet we did for our mothers. After all, maybe someone might get an idea for Mother's Day. I remember the yr I decided to try to find a hat like the favorite one my mother lost. I couldn't, so I had one MADE for her. It cost more than we could afford and never looked right, but I'm happy I did that.
I think not yet, since my life is very complicated.In short, I didn't grow on her side and as now I am back, its never been that great with her.
The older I get,the more I understand my mother.I was tutoring a student the other day who told me that when she was young, she was angry w/ her mother for spending so much time on her art. Now that my student is that age, she sees why.Happiness 2u.
Dear Mother is 93 years old now and cared for in a wonderful home. She has mild Alzheimer's but is still very much compos mentis and loves to eat fruit trifle (without sherry these days!).
A beauty in her younger days with a wonderful singing voice and musical nous, I visited the other day and at the chosen moment sang her a song...hoping she'd respond and join in.
Success. For a brief few seconds in time we clicked and harmonised a passage from Que Sera Sera.....whatever will be will be..
To me that was a mutual exchange of gifts.
I still think she'd prefer to be eating the trifle!!!
Doing everything for your mother is always a sweet thing. . But what I remember about doing a sweetest thing for my mother was to replace her old specks which she wanted badly.. When she asked me the source from where I got the new one. I replied that my piggy bank was the real source. She scolded me but could not stop dropping tears out of her beautiful eyes. It was really a sweetest thing for her and happiest feeling for me. . This sometime makes me emotional when I recollect all those days spent with my mother who had left me years back.
I'll keep this simple but it holds a lot of power. The sweetest thing I ever did for my mother was, I loved her deeply. She is gone now, and I still love her, and miss her every day.
My mom is 83 and I'm 53.
I just had major Brian and spine surgery last year.
She was feeling a little down because she is slowing down and doesn't like it.
I really rely helpless since I can't drive and do more for her so I just bent down in front of her and hugged her saying I apologized for not being able to take care of her better. But I told her I would be hear for her if she needed anything.
I'm beginning to understand role reversal.
And I thanked her for being with me during that very scary Tim in my life last year.
Lor, very sweet. It sounds as if your roles switch back and forth. You're a great team! I think hearing "thank you" from a daughter is so wonderful, and we don't tell our mothers thank you enough in very specific terms. Best wishes to you both.
We do get a bit mad at each other but for the most part I try to take it with a grain of salt.
