How To Pamper Mom This Mothers Day April 29 2016
Mother’s Day is right around the corner. It is a special time to provide respite for those who have given us care and nurturing. We also pay tribute to women who have cared for us in some way, our aunts, sisters, daughters, nieces and close friends. It is essentially about acknowledgement. Many of us take our mothers to dinner, brunch, a day at the spa or simply breakfast in bed. There are many ways that we can say thank you to these phenomenal women who have impacted our lives.
As you all know, Essentially Mint is a mother/daughter team. It is an especially rewarding experience. This year, the mother of the team is recovering from surgery and the daughter of the team has been nursing her back to health. Words can not fully describe this exchange of roles in our relationship. As the mom, I am so thankful to have a nurturing daughter. While she does not have children of her own, I am confident that the care she has provided me is an example of the extraordinary way she will one day parent.
What occurs to me most is the big heart and humility it requires to take care of another person. Our mothers have done that from our births. One day we may need to take care of them in a special way and nothing could be more rewarding for a parent.
So, this Mother’s Day, I invite you to share your appreciation in a special way. Have a bonding experience with her in the form of a foot bath. It is an experience that you both will appreciate and remember in a significant way.
You will need the following:
- A foot tub filled with warm water to begin the relaxation process
- A pair of soft snuggly sock to immerse her feet when done
- A pumice stone or loofah to scrub away the aches and pain
Just follow the instructions and give yourself permission to enjoy the moment.
