It can be really frustrating figuring out what to get our Mom’s for Mother’s Day. My Mom and Dad came into Dallas last night for some appointments, so we celebrated Mother’s Day early. I decided to go with a hands on approach in regards to my Mom’s gift.
I washed her feet for her. I had purchased Earth Therapeutics’ cool mint foot mask, soothing booties/socks with tea tree oil, and mint/tea tree oil foot wipes (I got these surprisingly at Kohls but Whole Foods has this line as well). Playing calm ocean music, Santori Splendor, I filled a small tub with lavender bubbles and washed her feet. Then scrubbed them with a pumice brush. I dried them and spread the foot mask all around her feet and toes for 30 minutes. She loved the tingling feeling from the peppermint. I loved peeling the mask off- I felt like I was back in third grade peeling the Elmer’s glue off my hands. Her feet were now smooth and like new. The whole time, she was just soaking it up and smiling, saying “Oh this feels so good.”
I couldn’t believe how much she loved this gift of being pampered. I know, every woman enjoys this, but I had never seen my mom enjoy getting her feet washed so much. This was my first time washing her feet and for me, it was incredible knowing I was serving her and that I was so grateful for all she is to me as a Mom. She works hard on her feet everyday, serving those she loves.
I could have given her clothes or jewelry, but this act meant much more than something material. So go ahead, take my idea, I’d love for you to bless your mom like this too.
