When was the last time you did something nice for your mother? If anyone is deserving of acts kindness, it is mothers. This wonderful list which is adapted from Sound Vision (where you can find the original article containing 10 ideas) should act as some inspiration.

1. Give your mother a vacation…

Don’t think Hawaii. Think of a day away from the kitchen. Or the home. Give her a vacation from the home where for her, most of the seemingly endless housework is done daily. Or, if she doesn’t want that, start doing your share around the house. Maybe you could start giving her one day of the week off, when she does no cooking or household chores. Remember, fathers and husbands work hard at the office, but they get a two-day weekend in most cases. Mothers usually don’t even get a full day off. And if they are also working outside, it’s like two full time jobs.

2. Try beating your mother’s cooking…

While most mothers ask their children what they want to eat, turn the tables around and do the same for her. Is there special food your mother likes? Buy or prepare that food for her (if you are not the best of cooks, maybe it’s safer to just buy it).

3. If your mother is a bookworm…

If so, buy a small cabinet and buy all of the books you can afford. Then take it to her home and set it up for her. If you can’t do that find her a book she would enjoy and surprise her.

4. Is your mother in a nursing home…

If your mother is in a nursing home, why not plan to bring her home for a weekend visit to stay with you. Even better, why not make this a weekly, or twice a month set up, so you can spend more time with her and she can be around those who really love her more often? Of course the ultimate gift will be if you can liberate her from that nursing home so she can stay in her room in your own home.

5. If mother is not alive…

If your mother is not alive, visit her relatives and friends and ask what you can do for them. This is a practical way to honour her memory.

What other kind things do you do for your mother?
