It wasn’t hard at all to know what I was going to write about today – Mother’s Day without a doubt. And choosing a featured flower for this Friday wasn’t too difficult either because there are so many great flower arrangements to choose from on the Brant Florist Website. Lavender Flowers for Mom says so much. It displays class, strength, yet is subtle and dramatic at the same time. It encompasses everything moms are all about. Sunday is Mother’s Day, a day that should never go unnoticed. A day that anyone who has a mother figure in their life, biologically or otherwise, that has gave of themselves to you out of love, has touched you, nurtured you and embraced you for no other reason than their genuine care for you, should be acknowledged. Take the time out of your day to make sure that the “mother” in your life knows just how much you appreciate them Sunday.

I hope you haven’t forgotten, because Mother’s Day is one occasion darn near no one should forget. Everyone has a mother, either one who gave birth to them and nurtured them throughout their years or one that acted in the fashion of a mother. Some people have more than one person they reflect to as their Mother. There are many titles to mother, such as Mother in Law, Grandmother, Foster Mother, Adoptive Mother, etc… but they all lead to the same basic yet complex title of Mother or Mom. A title like no other. A title that should be acknowledge on Mother’s Day for all that they do and the love that they give unconditionally. There is no one who can love another more even at their worse than a mother. For all the grief or happiness one gives their mother, making this one day out of the year is not near enough tanks for all that she has given in return unselfishly. The days are running short before this occasion to show your appreciation and thanks will pass, so make sure you get your flowers ordered, candy bought, dinner reservations made, or whatever it is you intend to do to honor this special woman on this special day – Mother’s Day.
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, my featured Friday flowers are reflecting just that. The “For All You Do Mom Flowers for Mother’s Day” is a perfect arrangement for moms around the world. “For All You Do® Bouquet” is a bright and cheery bouquet expressing endless thanks. Bright yellow roses, white traditional daisies, and bupleurum stems make a simply lovely display arranged in a spring green designer glass vase to create a gift of abundant gratitude.
Moms are probably the busiest people I know. Today, many of our mom’s work outside of the home as well as return home after a longs day work only to work some more. Moms deserve to have a day just for them, and deserve to be acknowledged for all they do for their loved ones. Don’t forget about Mom this Mother’s Day. Make her feel as special as she is.
A Mother’s Love
A Mother’s love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God’s tender guiding hand.
by Helen Steiner Rice.

I Said A Mother’s Prayer For You
I said a Mother’s Day prayer for you
to thank the Lord above
for blessing me with a lifetime
of your tenderhearted love.
I thanked God for the caring
you’ve shown me through the years,
for the closeness we’ve enjoyed
in time of laughter and of tears.
And so, I thank you from the heart
for all you’ve done for me
and I bless the Lord for giving me
the best mother there could be!
My Mother Kept A Garden
My Mother kept a garden,
a garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
that gave my life it’s start.
She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self-esteem…
And when the winds and rain came,
she protected me enough-
But not too much because she knew
I’d need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong-
Markers for my pathway
that will last a lifetime long.
I am my Mother’s garden.
I am her legacy-
And I hope today she feels the love
reflected back from me
A Precious Mother
Mom You’ve given me so much,
Love from your heart
and the warmth of your touch.
The gift of life and you’re a friend to me.
We have a very Special Bond
which only comes from God…
I’m sure you agree.
As a child I would say Mommy I Love You,
Now you’re my Mother so dear
I love you even more
with each and every new year.
If I could had chosen,
I would have picked no other.
Than for you…to be my lifelong friend
and Precious Mother.
As I Look Back…
As I look back on my life
I find myself wondering…
Did I remember to thank you
for all that you have done for me?
For all of the times you were by my side
to help me celebrate my successes
and accept my defeats?
Or for teaching me the value of hard work,
good judgement, courage, and honesty?
I wonder if I’ve ever thanked you
for the simple things…
The laughter, smiles, and quiet times we’ve shared?
If I have forgotten to express my gratitude
For any of these things,
I am thanking you now…
and I am hoping that you’ve known all along,
how very much you are loved and appreciated.
When You Have A Mother
When you have a mother
who cares so much for you
that anything you want
becomes her desires
When you have a mother
who is so understanding that
no matter what is bothering you
she can make you smile
When you have a mother
who is so strong that
no matter what obstacles she faces
she is always confident in front of you
When you have a mother
who actively pursues her goals in life
but includes you in all her goals
you are very lucky indeed
Having a mother like this
makes it easy to grow up
into a loving, strong adult
Thank you for being this kind
of wonderful mother.
Okay men! Has your wife bore you children? Does that not make her a mother? A question I am asked frequently is “Why should I give my wife flowers on Mother’s Day? She isn’t my mom.” Ask yourself this, if she is a mom, and she is dear to your heart, then the proper etiquette is to acknowledge her on Mother’s Day. After all, does she or does she not tend to the children in your home? A mother is a full time job, and not taking anything away from a father’s role (you have your day too by the way), taking one day out of the year to acknowledge this isn’t going to hurt any husband and in return, you make the woman of the household very happy! And remember guys, if mom isn’t happy, no one is happy!
Here are some suggestions to help you pay honor to the woman who rears the kids 24/7 365 days out of the year, with asking nothing in return but just a little love.
Flowers are always a win, but there is no need to stop there if you really want your wife to shine this Mother’s Day. Consider adding a assortment of candies or chocolate to the flowers, or a balloon bouquet to add to the celebration.
Clean the house and do all the laundry. (The dreaded never ending task! That on will score you big as long as you don’t ruin any clothes.) Get the kids to help!
Can you cook? Hook up a special meal (preferably her favorite if you can) and have the table set with candlelights and flowers! If you can’t cook, make reservations to her favorite restaurant.
Get her vehicle detailed or you and the kids can have fun together washing the car inside and out while you set mom up with a nice relaxing bubble bath all set with candles and a single red rose! Run the car to the gas station and fill it up while you are at it.
Handle all child conflicts. Allow nothing to slip passed you to mom.
Make arrangements for the kids to go to the sitter and plan a romantic evening out on the town followed up with a peaceful evening for just the two of you.
Make time! Clear your calendar! Give the day to her! If you cannot devote the day to her because of a work conflict, then make sure you give her a day you can and then make sure you follow through.
The best gift you can give your wife this Mother’s Day is acknowledgement for all that she does do for you and the children. Express to her how much she is appreciated in words and gestures of love. Make sure she feels the day is about her because you do actually appreciate and love her, and not just because it is a day on the calendar that dictates so. If women are reading this, feel free to add suggestions in comments to help the men out. For you men reading, add your suggestions of ideas that scored big points for you on Mother’s Day.
