Flowers? Check. Chocolates? Check. Restaurant reservations for Mother’s Day brunch? Check. A repeat of last year’s Mother’s Day? Check. This Mother’s Day, do something original, authentic, and cost-effective for your mother, your wife, or your adult daughter – who gave you those adorable grandkids – on her special day. Give her the gift of acknowledgment!
The Power of Acknowledgment demonstrates through the seven principles of acknowledgment how, when, and why it is important to sincerely, authentically, and profoundly acknowledge your loved ones. Often times our mothers do not know the value, meaning and joy they bring to us. Author Judith Umlas encourages the readers to get these acknowledgments from your brain to your mouth, and it will make a world of difference! Judith, for example, acknowledges her mother in a genuine, warm manner:
“Mom, your love of poetry opened me up to seeing the tiny details and nuances of life and in art and contributed to my love of writing and photography. You taught me to catch the detail that escapes almost everyone else but which has such meaning and beauty for me…You are a poetic and totally loving soul who sees the beauty in life in a unique and moving way. Your contribution to all of us through your vision and appreciation of life has been immense. I love you from the bottom of my heart, Judy.”
What is it about your mother, wife, or daughter that you appreciate and admire her for? Delivering a heartfelt acknowledgment to her will transform your relationship right before your very eyes. Your mom, your wife, and your daughter all deserve a treat. Give them the best, most affordable gift that will last a lifetime: the power of acknowledgment.
