After a long week, some quality time can be a special gift to an overworked mom, especially when the service to make the outing happen is provided by another loved one. This could be a special dinner that she didn’t have to cook, a husband who volunteers to put the kids to bed for her, or perhaps some time alone together sitting by the fire or watching a movie. Even something as simple as doing the laundry together can help her feel cherished – especially if the work ends with a nice foot massage. The possibilities are truly endless to a creative mind, fueled by love.It’s that time of year when the one who normally serves is finally served in some way, when the caregivers are cared for.
It’s that time when we’re reminded that a mother’s glass – the glass that is constantly being emptied out on behalf of her children, spouse, and others – deserves to be filled, honestly more than once a year. It’s also that time when mothers remember that they can best care for their loved ones from an overflowing glass, not one that is constantly being emptied.
