With everything that has happened the past couple years, my Dad being diagnosed with cancer, losing my uncle, aunt, drama teacher, my dad's best friend, the football coach at our school, my friend Anna, my friends Paul, Nick, Alex and Kevin. Me and my entire family have been through a lot. I know it's so hard for my Mom to see me so sad all the time, I know she wishes she could take away my pain, but she can't.
My Mom has always been such a selfless person, even when she needs help, she won't ask for it, but rather ask what she can do for you. Today she picked me up from my friend's house and told me she just had one of the worst days ever, people at work yelled at her, she completely ripped open a tired on her new car and a new one had to be ordered because the brand wasn't local, and with all of that on top of we have been through, it just brought her to tears.
She was so stressed out and started hyperventilating, after she calmed down, I decided to make her a homemade spa.
I looked up recipes for face-masks hand scrubs and a foot scrub as well. Then I sprayed her favorite perfume around a little so the smell would be calming and I also lit two candles. When she came in I put on the classical music station on Pandora for her to listen to while she relaxed in her "spa" with the lights off and candles lit.
She was so happy she cried and told me how much she needed it. Of course I knew she did, but she just didn't ask.
I love my Mom so much, and after everything she has done for me, this was the least I could do for her.
