Reach out on Mother’s Day

Every year we set aside a special day to honor Motherhood. As we prepare to show appreciation for the  women in our lives, whether they are our biological moms, or women who hold a special place in your heart because of the motherly influence they have on us, I wanted to share some powerful thoughts written by Jessica Wolstenholm . Jessica Wolstenholm is an author and freelance writer who blogs about motherhood and life at graceformoms.com. I was touched by the variety of real situations that she defines in this complex relationship between mother and child. Take a moment to read and process her suggestions. There is a  message here for everyone:

 

Whether you walk extremely close or there’s a valley of difference between you, reach out to your mother this week.

Whether you see eye to eye or you can’t agree on much of anything, look your mother in the eyes if you can and tell her how special she is.

Whether she’s loved you well or lacked in affection, tell her how much you appreciate her and linger in love through words or embrace.

Whether she’s been your role model or she’s shown you what not to do, tell her how

much you’ve learned from her.

Whether she’s been a near perfect mother or a much less than perfect one, she’s still here and that fact alone leaves so much potential for you both.

Call her, embrace her, surround her with your love whether it comes easy or along with tons of baggage.

Reach out for reconciliation if you are estranged.

Reach out in compromise if you are indifferent.

Reach out with time and attention if you are busy.

Reach out with affection if you are reserved.

Reach out with generous love even if you already do it regularly.

Here is to finding a meaningful way to celebrate  Mother’s Day. We invite you to “reach out” by having a day together at Kaffee’s Garden Spa. A perfect way to say I love you, Mom!
