The Best Mother's Day Gifts Don't Cost A Thing

Mother's Day is such a wonderful day for me. I enjoy it tremendously. In fact, I'd have to say that it's my favorite non-Christian holiday. Not because of the expensive gifts some people give, the dinners at fancy dinner establishments, $5 greeting cards covered with glitter, or the gourmet chocolate candies. (Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't turn my nose up at those things.) I enjoy it for the simple pleasures in life.

It is the one day of the year when I know I will not get a headache from my children's incessant arguing that normally seems to last 24/7. There is peace and quite in my house. They both played on the same side in our 2 on 1 tennis match today and I didn't hear one complaint about how the other child missed the ball!

There is only one day a year that the children will jump up and do whatever I ask them to do the first time. No "bad" hearing, ignoring, or outright disobeying occurs on Mother's Day. I speak and they obey, no questions asked. They were even ready for church and outside waiting for me at the appointed time without one single reminder! That NEVER happens any other day of the year.

They do things they wouldn't normally do like prepare meals and make my bed without me even requesting it of them. Thank you Peanut, I enjoyed my peanut butter toast for breakfast. Son plans on making dinner tonight. They both decided to fold the laundry and clean up after meals too. I've got the best kids in the world!

Let's not forget the thoughtful gifts and cards they make. It's not the expense of the gift that really matters, it's the simple thought of them making something with their own precious hands just for my pleasure and delight.

Days like these are heavenly, aren't they?

Thank you for stopping by to chat with me. Please leave me a message, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
