As a Mom, I’m sure you’re aware that Mother’s Day is only days away. I bet you’ve dropped loads of hints to your husband and children. And, if they’re anything like my Hubs and #1, they haven’t planned anything yet.
Never fear, Mom of the Moment is here!
Over the last month I shared several posts about Love Languages and how someone can use those to their advantage when gift giving.
So, if you still need to drop some hints to your loved ones, you should send those links on to those that need to see them. But, first, make sure you pinpoint your own love language by taking the quiz.
You can find it here.
Once you’ve figured out where you fall, you can find the corresponding post below. Each post includes options to share it at the bottom.
People who have Words of Affirmation as their love language appreciate being praised and lifted up in words. Whether it’s spoken or written, they feel loved by being encouraged and assured.
This language is pretty straightforward, to an extent. Basically, you’re tangibly showing how much you love someone.
For the Mom with the Acts of Service Love Language, it’s going to mean a thousand times more to her if you put forth an effort to lighten her load, as opposed to handing her a wrapped gift.
For me, or the Mom with the Quality Time Love Language, the best gift is to give time together. No, this doesn’t mean time starring at your respective screens, but true, honest to goodness, quality time. Something that’s memorable, preferably.
This love language is not for someone that prefers folks at a distance. It’s the language of the snuggler, the ‘bubble popper,’ the close talker. This person likes to have others in their business and knows they truly care based on their physical interaction.
And, Mom’s, remember, my lists are not the be all, end all in Mother’s Day gift giving. If there’s something you really want, don’t be afraid to ask! After all, they’re only here because of you.
Happy Mother’s Day!
