Mothers Day Freebies & Deals
Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12.
Happy Mothers Day to all of our fans who are moms!
Mom wants you to save money! So, get something free or cheap! Whether you’re looking for free stuff or coupons, here’s the list you need.
First, I learned that to fully enjoy special days, sometimes I need to be more specific in what makes me happy. Of course, that doesn’t come naturally to me. I usually don’t ask for anything; because I’m the one doing the giving. Similarly, I think that holds true for many of us mothers, especially the moms that I know.
Gimmie’s Secret to Getting Exactly What You Want on Mother’s Day:
One of my favorite stories is how to get the kind of birthday cake I love. In the same vein, it’s the same concept for any special day including Mother’s day. Because, for years my loving family would get me a cake that I didn’t like. Don’t get me wrong, because I did sincerely appreciate it. But, no matter how many times I mentioned what kind of cake I liked, my birthday cake was never my favorite kind. Then until I figured out… I can MAKE my own cake! And guess what? After making it once I got my favorite kind of cake every year after. I didn’t even make it myself anymore. 😉
Above all, make your own destiny. Whether it’s clearly telling your family what you’d like, or simply making it happen. Of course, the point is to be happy, don’t get into the “poor me” syndrome. It should be a birthday party, not a pity party!
In conclusion, make sure to express gratitude and let them know how much it means when they “get you.” Because life’s too short to feel slighted, especially if we’re not doing all we can to find happiness.
In addition, be sure to read and share this awesome article 25 Rules for Mothers of Daughters. It’s truly great stuff!
