The Mother's Day Gift Of Time
The Best Gift For Mother's Day Is The Gift Of Time
I have 4 wonderful and grown up children. They have lives of their own, they have families and friends of their own, and yet they always find time to call, or to visit me. The love and commitment they show me all year long is the best Mother's Day gift I could ever get. Of course, like kids all over the country, they get me a lovely gift just for Mother's Day too! One year it was a grill for our Sunday barbeques, one time it was a clay chiminea I had admired, one year it was a beautiful birthstone ring ... one birthstone for each of their birthday months and one birthstone for my June birthday. It's always wonderful to get these packaged and wrapped gifts, but my children give me every day the best Mother's Day gift ever. They give of themselves to make each day happier for me, whether's it's a phone call, a funny email, some comments on Facebook, or an in person visit. If I never get another package to unwrap, if I never get a vase of beautiful flowers, all my gift wishes would still be fulfilled. I know I am a lucky Mom and I do thank God every day for giving me the most wonderful gift of all, loving and caring children. Photo Credit

Some Of The Best Mother's Day Gifts I Have Received - They aren't the very best one, but they did make a great 2nd!
One year for Mother's Day my kids got me a fabulous gas grill for our weekly summer BBQ's. It was a lovely surprise and it's one of my most used gifts ever.
My Chiminea was another great Mother's Day gift from my wonderful kids! We use it most of the year and we love to cook on with it. It's lots of fun in the Spring, Summer and Fall months.
There are three perfumes that grace my dresser tray. Year after year I use these three scents and anyone of them makes a fabulous gift idea if I am to be the recipient of that gift. The three fragrances I adore are Shalimar By Guerlain For Women, Channel #5, and Obsession by Calvin Klein.
My 365 Day A Year Mother's Day Gift
I was a stay at home Mom at a time when it wasn't popular to be one. It was not too long after the time when it was fashionable for women to work outside the home, and on my block most of them did. There were only a few other mothers in my neighborhood to talk to during the day, most of my friends worked outside the home building careers and I stayed home engrossed in my soap operas, helping with homework, cooking dinners, doing laundry and making sure the kids were safe and sound.
We would go to baseball practice, softball practice, football practice, cheering practice, tennis practice, soccer practice, dance school, gymnastic classes, Boy Scout and Girl Scout meetings, and every other imaginable kid's activity. My days and evenings were full of running my 4 kids around and then making sure there was a dinner on the table for them. It was a busy, but very happy, time in my life.
I had my children very close together. There were 4 of them born in 5 years. Their closeness made each day a busy day, but there were many rewards because of it too. I loved being a Mom to my kids back in those busy, busy days. That's not to say I was a perfect one, because I was far from that. I think the best thing I did was make sure my kids knew I loved them. They could forgive the mistakes I made because of that knowledge. And now that they are grown they can understand some of the tough decisions I made for them, though they weren't always popular decisions at the time.
My children were very close growing up, and they still are today. As a family we vacation together, celebrate holidays and birthdays together, sometimes as a smaller family group, sometimes larger gatherings with extended family members. We even have a BBQ every week of the summer, it's a great way to recap the events of the week with each other.
So there you go, my children and their love, there's what I consider to be the best Mother's Day gift I will ever receive. It's also a gift that lasts so much longer than flowers, candy or even a clay chiminea. I am grateful each and every day for the children I gave birth to, those angels in my life who make each day a little bit of Heaven on Earth. What a lucky Mom I am, and what a grateful one I am.
My Mother's Day wants are very simple and yet sometimes they are the most difficult for some people to give. I hope reading this will change that for some of you Moms out there. I hope some children out there will realize what is really important on Mother's Day, and every other day of the year, it's time together well spent rather than the gift you send. Spend some time with your Moms!
Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms out there, I hope you enjoy your day today and every day, may it be filled with love, laughter, and family.
