Mother’s Day Dates – Mark it on Your Calendar

Spread the love

In Australia and USA we celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May.

It is a day to reflect on and appreciate our Mother’s and the tradition of giving gifts began as a way to thank our Mother or Mother figure for the sacrifices they have made.

All Mothers know it is generally a thankless job but being a mother is also the best job in the world.  

Mother's Day

For all the sleepless nights and uneaten dinners, tantrums and mess, there is so much love and beauty.  The random kisses and gorgeous smiles and spontaneous declarations of love that nothing else compares to.

Mother's DayThe little ones grow up and a mother’s job evolves.  It changes from bottles and nighttime cuddles to homework and taxi-ing to extra-curricular activities and friends houses.

Then we watch them grow further into adults.  The heartstrings stretch a little longer for the babies they once were, but the bond will never break.

When our children have their own children our relationship evolves even further as they finally have some understanding of what it might have been like for their own mother and they look at Mum with a new level of respect and adoration.

Your Mother is the expert on everything from how to make gravy and fold fitted sheets, to how to soothe a crying child and the best way to grow tomatoes.

Appreciate your Mother every day, for you never know when you won’t have her anymore.  But thank her especially on Mother’s day!

Some Mother’s Day gift ideas might include:

  • Breakfast or lunch at a park or somewhere out for the day with all the family
  • A voucher for beauty therapy or massage, something to pamper her
  • Music
  • A visit to the theatre or moviesflower
  • Flowers and chocolates are always appreciated!
  • As we are currently experiencing Autumn in Australia, slippers and dressing gowns are always popular
  • Hand made craft items from the little ones or a handmade card with a nice poem

Happy Mother’s Day!

Love,

Kris

    I enjoyed your article very much today, it is a shame we only pay so much attention to our mom’s on Mother’s Day and not everyday.

    I liked your Mother’s Day suggestions very much, mom’s always cherish more then anything time we spend with her.

    I hope and pray your mom is alive and well, great article with super suggestions I am sure everyone will benefit from your article today.

    I didn’t realize that other countries celebrated Mother’s day on different weeks/days. We think sometimes US is the only place on earth, especially if you live there.

    I agree with you that we really don’t realize what mother’s go through until their daughter’s experience it first hand.

    You present some really nice gift ideas. Nice Post!

      Haha thanks for that Edwin.

      Yes in Australia it is the same as the US however the UK celebrates ‘Mothering Sunday’ on the 4th Sunday of Lent, which is 3 weeks before Easter Sunday.

      The world is a big place!

      Cheers, Kris
