Today people across the country will celebrate, mourn, pray or say a loving intention for their mothers. Whether biological, adoptive or something in between, mothers are given their moment to shine on this day. Mother’s Day is an opportunity for us all to say thank you to the woman or women in our lives for all the ways they bring forth life in us.
COVID-19 :Celebrating Mother’s Day With More Meaning
This holiday, the COVID-19 crisis will force us to take much of the focus off of consumerism and take into consideration what really counts – expressing true love appreciation and gratitude. Here are a few ideas:
• Encourage mom to stay in bed to relax and whip up a yummy breakfast for her. Or decorate the dining table extra special for a nice Mother’s day breakfast or brunch.
•Read to her from her favorite scripture or passage from her favorite book.
•Set up a home spa with a soothing foot soak, pedicure and a rejuvenating massage.
•Take a family walk or bike ride in the neighborhood.
•Write her a poem about how much she is appreciated and recite it to her.
•Decorate the house with flowers in every room and do a little extra spring cleaning so she doesn’t have to.
•Make handmade cards with the kids so everyone has an opportunity to show how much they love her! ~ staff writer
