On the second Sunday of May, we honor the person who tended to us as small children, nourished us as teenagers, and listened to our problems as young adults. As a child, there was never a shortage of ways to please your mom on Mother’s Day. A sentimental poem or placing your hands into tempera paint to make a print was all you needed to do. We become distracted as we get older, life gets more complicated, and we find ourselves running out of Mother’s Day gift ideas.
Whether we take her to brunch, give her a gift certificate for a salon, or make her a handmade craft, what most moms want is to be around their family, surrounded in their love. They want to know their family is safe and happy and healthy, for most moms it is the only gift they want.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there!
