There is so much to say about Mother’s Day. I was reading Facebook this morning thinking about why people feel compelled to profess their love for their mother, or for mothers in general, on a public place like Facebook. I especially laughed at the people leaving messages for their mom’s that don’t hardly get on Facebook. I wonder why people do that? Is it a social status thing, yet another one, that I don’t understand. Me? I’m taking my mom and two kids out for lunch at the Olive Garden today. We are tight on money so that’s the best I can do. I guess I could spend that $50 on a plant for my mom or something else like that, but I enjoy spending time with my family and sharing a meal is something to do while we visit and talk. I assume my mom likes to do that say because she is always inviting family over to share meals. I guess I should ask her if she feels loved when we share a meal or not.
My husband and I have recently read together the 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman. That is why I was wondering if my mom feels love that way. I personally prefer time spent with people, not gifts, when it comes to knowing I’m loved. I belive my son is the same way. I think my dughter might find gifts a sign of love. My husband values acts of services most. Wonder what my grandson will find as an action of love. Right now he likes to be held and to have people play with him, but he’s not quite 2 yet, so that is most likely more age than personality. It’s interesting to think about.
