Expectations. What do you expect for Mother’s Day? I’m of the opinion that it’s kinder and better to set down all your expectations and just receive with a smile anything your husband and family does. Appreciate their efforts. Thank them for gifts. What they do is an expression of their love, not necessarily a reflection of true understanding of what you might like or want. Don’t feel bad if they miss the later. They are growing and learning and won’t always get that just right. Give them a little grace. Appreciate their efforts to show love and appreciation.
A wise lover values not so much the gift of the lover as the love of the giver. Thomas á Kempis
