I stood by the entrance to the grocery store admiring all the lovely flowers. A man walked in and with great speed picked up a bouquet of flowers. I did not see too much thought in his selection process. Any flower will do as long as it’s a flower. This is the impression that I received and I wondered if this is how he treats a relationship with his mother. Fleeting! STOP, and take the time to put much thought in what you are doing and think about details. Mothers do have favorite color selections and flower types just like you do! There is a vast amount of flower varieties to make your Mothers Day designed especially for her. . . Does she love sun flowers, tulips, roses…? Look! The flowers are also enveloped in beautiful bright bold papers and printed designs. Tell your mother how you were truly thinking of her when you made that purchase!
People take their mothers for granted. Cherish each day as if the last because time flits by in a blink of an eye! Hug your mother each and every day and say I love you! If your mother has passed call up and send flowers to a friends mother or a neighbor . . . 🙂 As the saying goes, Reach Out and Touch Someone!
Mothers Day Marathon … incredible, but very interesting to see communities are hosting Mothers Day Marathons. However, there is a combined marketing agenda. Charities are now tagging along and trying to scoop up some donations for a cause. I believe that mothers have been used enough and these not for profits should just butt out of Mothers Day! It is moms day!
Mothers should receive this every day and be presented with it at the breakfast table. Although, it could present a nuisance at the end of each week. What would one do with all of those flowers? Many can be planted outside such as this grouping I captured today at the grocery store. This year like no other prior year is ‘flower hot’ to capture Mothers Day sales. The manager of the grocery explained to me that I should get it while I can because the flowers move out the store very FAST!
I would like to forget mothers day with its relationship to a Greek Cult or Roman Godess. The 1908 American revival of Mothers day also leaves a sourly taste. Anna Jarvis, a community organizer and probably a progressive activist in her time pushed for this holiday to commemorate her mother. We all have this in common, a mother. In order to make a profit, corporations have controlled this market each year through flower, candy sales. Dining out also became a popular social event on mothers day. Until recently and insane as it is, I have never thought about the history of Mothers Day. Mothers Day was a day that arrived and was celebrated each year and that was it! Oh my God, I have been conditioned and that is frightening. Today, corporations are attempting to change the natural course of birthing through eugenics. Eliminating mothers altogether. The no sex generation is their target market. I would like to see mothers being celebrated every day because it is very special to be a mother. Dads also have their day too but mothers are natural nurturers. How can we make mothers days be better? I think through kindness and being respectful is a great start. There are allot of single mothers out in the world today and that job must be daunting. And, it should be a number one top priority to make sure there will always be mothers! What kind of world would we be living in without mothers!
