Last year on Mother’s Day evening, I received my first Mother’s Day gift from my daughter – an exquisite Madonna necklace. She said it was a timely, last minute Mother’s Day gift, and it touched me to the core. As I was moved, it was as if my brain triggered something and remembered the first Mother’s Day gift I gave my own mother.
I was a teenager at the time and had saved some money from my part-time job. I wanted to give my mother something special to let her know how much I appreciated everything she had done for me. After much deliberation, I decided to give her a ring with the Virgin Mary on it because she was a devout Catholic and instilled in me the importance of faith and family values.
My mother was ecstatic about this gift and wore it every day. It became a symbol of her faith and her love for her family. I have never forgotten that moment, and it has stayed with me throughout my life.
Now, as a mother, I realize how much my mother sacrificed for me and how much she loved me. She passed away a few years ago, but her memory lives on in my heart and in the values she instilled in me.
When I look at my new necklace, I feel a connection to my mother and her faith. Catholicism has always been a big part of my life and the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary represents hope, love, and strength. She reminds us that no matter how hard life gets, there is always a higher power watching over us and guiding us.
Mother’s Day is a special day to honor and thank the women who have shaped our lives. It is a time to express our love and appreciation for all they have done for us. But sometimes, life gets busy and we forget to plan gifts in advance. That’s when last-minute gifts come in handy.
There are many great last minute gift ideas for Mother’s Day that don’t require a lot of time or money. One option is to make a homemade card or write a heartfelt letter expressing your love and appreciation. This is a simple and meaningful gesture that will bring a tear to any mother’s eye.
If your mother is religious, a religious-themed gift, such as a Virgin Mary necklace or a crucifix, can be a meaningful and symbolic gift. It can be a reminder of her faith and the values she holds dear.
In short, Mother’s Day is a special day to show our love and appreciation for all Mother has done for us. While it’s always a good idea to plan gifts in advance, last-minute gifts can be just as meaningful and thoughtful. Whether it’s a homemade card or a religious-themed gift, it’s all thoughtful.
