When you were growing up and Mother’s Day was approaching, would you ever ask your mother when kids’ day was? And she’d laugh, roll her eyes a little, and respond: “Every day is kids’ day.” Well, here’s the thing: She was right, as per usual. Most mothers celebrate their children every single day. And that’s why, as we grow up, we come to understand how important it is to celebrate our mothers — and not just on one day out of the year, but every day.

Mother’s Day is all about making your mom feel special and pampered. But sometimes, just taking time out of your day to call and hear your mom’s voice, or stop by for dinner if you live close to home, is all she needs to feel special. When you want your mom to feel some extra love, all it takes is putting in the effort to remind her that you’re thinking about her. If you typically call your mom to tell her about your day, call her up just to ask about her's instead. Or if you haven’t been great about getting your mom presents for her last few birthdays, surprise her with flowers and a beautiful gift.

It’s the little things that will really warm your mom’s heart — the kind gestures, the moments when you make her proud, and the quality time you spend together. Whether you call your mom to tell her you’re planning a mother-daughter trip just for you two this year, or you send her a card found at the chic paper store that just opened in your neighborhood, go the extra mile to make your mom’s day. And remember, you don’t have to wait until Mother’s Day to show her your love and appreciation.
