Age… the inevitable gift time gives us. We all receive it, without wanting it. Me and mom were having this conversation last week. It was her Birthday and I took her to have her makeup done for the date she and my dad was going to that evening. She told me something I will never forget: “My child. Just look after your skin, because I regret not looking after mine”. As I then specifically looked at her, i noticed how much she has aged. But instead of seeing wrinkles and fine lines, I saw all the years of laughing, smiling, and being a proud mom. Those lines are hard-earned medals! I mean look at me? I turned out quite okay, if I may say so myself. My sister and I were definitely not a walk in the park of parenthood. I don’t think I would have been the person I am today if it wasn’t for my mom investing in my life. We fought a hell of a lot. Our personalities are just those from two different worlds, but it does not change the fact that she is my mom, and I love her.
Therefor I want to encourage you today to take a step back, look at your mom. Appreciate the fact that she is still here on earth with you. You might not get along always, but there will always be something in you that will remind you of the fact that she is your mom, and you love her with your whole heart. With that being said, even if you don’t have a mom anymore, of you were never as fortunate to know your mom. There must be someone in your life you can relate to… a Grandma? a friend’s mom? your mom in law? your older sister? the old lady from the finance department. Mother’s day does not only mean celebrating your mom. I believe it means celebrating every motherly figure. I mean I even see myself as a mom. I have a lot of pets, and although some might say it is not as much work as looking after a child… I still see myself caring, respecting and giving to those who are in need of what I have to give.
So let’s celebrate our motherly figure in our lives this Mother’s Day
With that being said. I teamed up with L’Oreal to do this lovely giveaway which one of my lucky friends can win (yes, I like to call you guys my friends). Now you can either win this for yourself if you are over the Age of 50 or win it for your mom, grandma or that motherly figure we spoke about.
