Honoring Mom on Mother’s Day
As you might have noticed from all the store displays, flower arrangements and dinner reservations, it’s almost Mother’s Day. And while the day is a boon for the greetings card and restaurant businesses, it’s also a chance to honor that special person— the one that brought you into this world.
That’s right… the one… the only… Mom!
So what should you do for Mom? The perfect Mother’s Day is as individual as she is. Some moms like to be treated like the queens of the world that they are for their special day. Others would like nothing better than to disappear out in a garden for some well-earned peace and quiet. Take the time to consider who Mom actually is and what she likes. Not all moms like to be dragged off to a crowded restaurant, or want yet another bouquet of flowers they’ll have to figure out where to place.
Rather than racking your brains, your best bet is to ask her. Let mom pick the type of day she wants to have. That being said, there are a few things that virtually any mother will like.
- Give Mom the day off.
- Say ‘thank you’ for all she does.
- Spend time together (but don’t be afraid to let Mom do her own thing too).
Above all, show her you care. And better yet, make everyday a ‘Mother’s Day’ by showing appreciation for all she does the other 364 days of the year.
