Mother’s Day 2013, Mother’s Day Poems For You

Here is a great Mother’s Day 2013 poem for you to share with your mother on this special day.

Mother you are the light that shines on a sunless day
The special smell of cookies baking, making everything okay
The bandage on the skinned knee and kisses to ease the pain
The one who hugged away bad dreams, so I could sleep again

Mother you gave to me your heart and love, you never turned away
You believed and kept me on the path, when it was simpler to stray
You cheered me on and kept me strong, when it would have been easier to fail

Mother you showed me what it means to sacrifice and give more than you receive
Your life has taught me how to live and in what I can believe
You are my rock, my source of strength and the one who helped me grow

Mother your caring ways and tender words guide me each and every day
You taught me character is much more than words, but actions brave and true
I am the person you see today, because of everything you do

Mother when nighttime settles on the hills and everything is still
I hear your prays, see your face and all is warm and safe
You are the one who gave me life, gifts of hope and faith
All that I believe today and everything I have become
You are the one I have to thank for your amazing love

Get Ready For Mother’s Day 2013

Get Ready For Mother’s Day 2013

Mother’s Day always falls on the second Sunday in May, so this year we celebrate it on May 12th.  A quick look at the calendar should nudge sons and daughters to start planning Mom’s big day.  Instead of grabbing a last minute card and taking her to a fast food place, sons and daughters should consider putting a little more time and effort into the occasion.

Even those mothers who pretend they hate having a fuss made over them really enjoy the attention.  Mother’s Day 2013 is fast approaching, so now is the time to make reservations at her favorite restaurant.  Reservations for the great dining establishments will be filling up soon, so fast action is required. No mother wants to wait hours for a decent table.

Also, many people will be ordering flowers, so conscientious children need to place their orders now.  Gift offerings at department stores will soon be picked over, leaving only those clichéd gifts of perfume and lockets behind.  This Mother’s Day, a different kind of gift will make a wonderful surprise.  Maybe she’d love a weekend trip or a gift certificate to a spa.  Mothers spend a lot of time spoiling their children, so they’ll appreciate getting spoiled in return.

Mothers are also competitive, so they hate admitting that their gift is foot powder from drug store.  Frankly, it’s embarrassing to be the mom on the block who got the worst gift. Yes, Mother’s Day is about family togetherness, but a nice gift for Mom makes things better.

Turn around twice and Mother’s Day will be here.  Smart children will make their plans now, so they won’t come up short on May 12th.

Mother’s Day 2013 is on May 12th, and time to prepare for it is growing short.

Gift Books

A Mother’s Day gift book can be an ideal gift that a mother can read and treasure year round. There are various books of this nature; take the time to check out the options and choose the one that your mother would be the most likely to appreciate.

Meal Out

One of the best things that a child can give his or her mother is time. Mothers appreciate spending time with their grown children and are sure to enjoy a meal out together at a favorite restaurant. The restaurant does not have to be fancy but it should be quiet enough to allow for meaningful conversation.

Gift Basket

Gift baskets make excellent gifts and there are numerous options to choose from. In fact, anyone can buy their own empty basket at a local store and make a truly personalized gift basket containing the items that his or her mother likes best.

Gift Certificate

While a gift certificate is a fairly simple gift, it can in many cases be the best one. Any individual who does not know what mother would appreciate receiving may want to buy a gift certificate to a restaurant, health club or store so that mother can choose the gift that she would like best.

Flowers

Flowers are a timeless gift that any mother is sure to appreciate receiving. Flowers can also complement another gift such as jewelry or a gift certificate.

These are just some of many Mother’s Day 2013 gift ideas that a person can choose from. While some mothers may appreciate one gift more than another, most mothers are just happy to be able to spend time with their children and bask in their appreciation and gratitude on this special, meaningful day.
