A mother is a gift that we get from God even before our existence could happen. A mother is the first relation we know of as a child. Science says that a baby in the womb can understand their mother’s emotions, can listen to their voice, recognize their natural smell, and can feel her touch. We are made in our mother’s bodies. The first food we eat is through her, the first place we’re ever at is her, the first tear we shed on is her, and the first smile we have is looking at her face. A relationship between a mother and their child is magical. A mother would know that when you’re hungry, she’ll know when you’re sad, happy, anxious, stressed, or in love. There’s nothing that can ever be hidden from a mother, and that’s why legends say that “God couldn’t be everywhere, so He created mothers.” This phrase is true in every way possible, and our mothers play the same role as Him. Think about it for once; every word of this phrase would make sense to you.
These days a lot of us live in different states or different countries, the reason could be work or studies, or just that you want to move away from your country and settle somewhere else. Still, no matter how far you go, you can never go away from your mother because she has the most permanent place in your heart, and the kind of love you have for her can be compared to none. Every day of your mother’s life is a blessing for you, and your mother’s birthday is one of the most special days of your life, but apart from that, it’s mother’s day that allows you to treat mama-bear like a queen. Say it’s the mother’s day, you live in the USA, and your mother lives in India, you can send flowers to India for her to start with, you might send gifts and cakes to her as well. Little surprises warm her heart, and you know that little things bring her joy, especially if they’re done or sent by you from afar.
A little good morning text from you means so much to her; imagine what would other things you’d do to make her feel happy to make her feel. Sending mother’s day flowers, getting a cake delivered to her on mother’s day, or sending a gift to her is fine and needed, but there’s something more that you should do, especially if you stay away from her. Something extra that would melt her heart because all you can take is the virtual route to be with her on that day, bring it into the most use. Here’s a little guide for a virtual mother’s day:
- Call’o Clock: Schedule a video call with your mother according to her time of convenience, the time when she’d be free, the time when she won’t be napping or busy with the other household or job-related stuff. Talk to her about everything, ask her about everything, and have a call with her as you have with your best friend. Tell her how much you miss her, tell her how much she means to you, and tell her how badly you want to see her in person very soon. Have a mother-child conversation that you’ve probably not had in a long time. It would be refreshing, hearty, emotional, and happy for both of you.
- Tea Talk: Organise the evening tea session with her on a video call. Make sure you fix the time of the call according to her schedule. Have a nice chit-chat session with her over the video call while sipping tea miles apart from her yet so close. You can also surprise her with a little cake that you might get delivered to her, or you can cut it yourself for her. Make sure you both are on the video call; distance would suddenly disappear in no time.
- Slip the Surprises: Make a list of any number of surprises that you’d want to send to her, be it gifting items, flowers, or cakes, and schedule their delivery at random times of the day. Ask your mother to video call you every time she receives one and unwraps it. Her first reactions would be a bliss to watch. Gifts every hour or every two to three hours would surprise her. You can make her day with random stuff, and all that would be extremely special for her as it would be from your side. Make this mother’s day one of the ‘full-of surprises’ and love kind of day for your mother.
- View Visits: Plan a day alone to a place that your mother has not been to, be it hiking, be it a museum, be it an art gallery, be it a new city, be it a city tour, or be it a visit to the monuments or temples. Keep your mother on a video call with you, and you can take her on a virtual trip. Make her see new places and new things, and give her the feeling that she’s with you while you explore new places. You can even go shopping and buy clothes for yourself that she chooses, let her feel an important part of your daily life again. She’ll be the happiest person.
Your mother doesn’t need fancy treats or expensive gifts to feel good on mother’s day. Your time and your presence with her are the most important to her. Nothing can compare to her child for a mother, give her all of you on this day and watch her heart dance with joy.
