Mother’s Day is set aside to celebrate and honor our mothers who play an integral role in raising generations. Motherhood, unlike fatherhood, is a direct relationship that begins when the child is in the womb, to the very first cry, and continues to be a lifetime bond. In her famous phrase “It is not how much you give, but how much love you put in the giving”, Mother Teresa aptly described who a mother is. A mother remains stalwart support for her child/children’s lives and thus it is paramount to keep her healthy and strong.
Here are 3 ways to celebrate a mother on mother’s day. She can be healthy, comfortable, and satisfied at the same time (Killing two birds with one stone, if you ask me): –
It is commonplace to hear people speak and say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Quite frankly, I tend to believe the opposite is also quite true. To some women, this is definitely a love language! You should try this with your mother this mother’s day.
Go online, browse and identify a recipe that includes one of her favorite meals. Tailor-make the meal to the best of your ability and ensure it is as good as she often describes her favorite dish (I’m sure you’ve discussed this with her and you were paying attention). It should definitely involve starch, protein, and vegetables, as well as a freshly squeezed glass of juice, to make it as balanced as possible.
Then watch her grow healthier and stronger, as she brings up the future generation, tasks which only a healthy mom would do with so much ease and grace.
Erroneously, some people say that a woman is as old as she looks. But I say she is as old as she feels. She is as heavy as she feels. She is a product of what she feels! As a result, her body should be made to feel healthy, which can be achieved by getting her that Wellness check. Whether she is in her 20s or in her 60s, there is something cut out for her, just to give her the confidence and surety of how healthy her body is. Again, I reiterate the old wise guy, “Prevention is better than cure”.
It is commonplace for people to say that a happy wife is a happy home. You should definitely try a happy mother with a happy child! Help her baby get the vaccinations and nutritional assessments done and see her transform from her tired and worn-out self to a glowing and elated individual.
Mothers are a gift from God. This God-given gift should be nurtured and celebrated. We are because they are!
