The week end is almost here and with it will come an end to incessant marketing of Mother’s Day (which is on Sunday). It is been a constant feature for the past two months of TV, radio, newspapers and of course that never ending junk mail that appears each day in the mail box! It’s is nothing more that a commercial exercise and I am over it.
Mother’s Day, like Father’s Day should not be a one day a year reminder for off spring to pay some attention to their parent, lavish them with gifts or take some time out to visit or make a phone call. Parents generally speaking, do not want gifts, lavish dinners or cheesy cards on that one day a year, what they want is a great relationship with their children all year. That doesn’t mean being in each other’s pockets daily but a relationship where children know they loved and can always discuss anything with their parents and parents know that they are respected and loved by their children.Unconditional love, that no amount of money can buy!
We have a birthday celebration to go to tomorrow, which should be lovely. It is going to be a casual affair and it is still undecided whether it will be held at their home or everyone will go out for a meal. Guess it will be a surprise for everyone!
Have a great week end 🙂
