I have received information about the TYLENOL® Holiday Heroes promotion from McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., the makers of TYLENOL®. The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post for Kin Community.
Can you believe there’s only 2 more days until Christmas? I’ve been trying to keep it simple and zen this year and not get caught up in the holiday craziness. But I usually get really sentimental right before Christmas and into baking, decorating, gifting etc. Even if I’m a bit tired, I don’t want it to get in the way of celebrating. How’s it going for you?
When I was asked about my Holiday Hero, someone who goes above and beyond, I’d have to say it’s my mom.
My mom has always been the one who gives, not just during the holidays, but always. And I don’t mean gifts. I mean of her time, her cooking, her concern (sometimes to a fault).
My parents immigrated to the US in the 70’s, she was only 23 when she had me. She sacrificed a lot to move to a new country. She left her friends, her family, her comfort zone for new opportunities for her children. She thought about us first and she’s always thinking of others.
For example, this Christmas they are coming over for Christmas Eve dinner and even though I have told her I have it handled, she doesn’t want me go through the trouble. So she has pre-prepared several of our favorite Chinese dishes and will probably be up super early to get it all ready. She’s the one that is always thinking about the neighbors or volunteering at her Buddhist organization, or donating to the stranger on the street.
I don’t always show my gratitude as much as I should, because I don’t always need her to do these things for me, but I know it’s how she shows her love and I do appreciate it. This holiday I’ll make sure she knows I appreciate her and so do the kids. Sometimes the ones we are closest to are the ones we forget to thank.
