I Never Do Anything Special for My Mom on Mother’s Day

Yes, you read that correctly. I say it with pride because it’s true. My mom and I are close and we spend a lot of time together. I used to take her to the movies when I worked there every week. When I had a steady income, I would buy her dinner and help her pay for groceries. So today for Mother’s Day, I got up early at 7 AM to get her favorite meal: a dozen tamales, barbacoa, corn tortillas, and Big Red. I paid for it and had it ready for her when she woke up. She likes to do family interviews so I got her an old-school tape recorder. After she ate and relaxed, I took her to the movies where we saw “Lowriders” and I went to a movie theater that I rarely ever go to because it was the only one playing it. I did all this for my mom, but like I said it’s nothing special. This is stuff I do for her all the time. I always tell people that I don’t do anything on Mother’s Day for my mom, but they don’t realize how much I do for her on a daily basis. I always tell her, “If you want to celebrate Mother’s Day, then I’m not going to do all this stuff for you all the time. I’ll save it all for Mother’s Day.” She really does appreciate everything I do for her. In my opinion, Mother’s Day is like Valentine’s Day. Do you really need a special holiday to appreciate your mom? That’s something you should be doing every day. I will always cherish the memories I have with my mom because she has always pushed me to do my best and has always been my biggest fan. I love you, Mom.
