Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. Just a few thoughts for those of you who will be on the receiving end of that celebration.
One of the kindest things you can do is receive with joy and warmth whatever people do and say to express their love. They are offering you their heart in the best way they know how.
People speak different love languages, have different life experience and generally hear through a filter of their own unique understanding. What people offer you as an expression of love will reflect that mishmash of personal design, experience and understanding. Be careful not to judge that as “bad,” “stupid” or “worthless,” but rather “genuine,” “precious” and (their kind of) “thoughtful.”
If you’re faced with a unique gift or situation, just respond with a smile, a hug and a “thank you.”
