Remember when you were in grade school, Mother’s Day was coming, and you created a special picture, poem, or art project for your mom?
As a mother of 2 kids, I can say that I get teary when reading the homemade stories and poems my kids bring home from school. But I must say, one of my favorite things about Mother’s Day is simply being with my children, spending the day exploring our local nature trails, grilling some of our favorite foods, and just spending the day relaxing. Although this year we will be spending the day at the baseball field watching my son do what he loves at a tournament. The food may not be grilled, it will be fried as we will be hitting up the concession stand for some fries, and it may not be as relaxing as I would like, (man can baseball games get stressful!) I will enjoy spending the day with my family.
Sometimes spending time together is much more valuable than gifts. Making the effort to visit or call can sometimes make all the difference. Cherish the moments that you have with your family, no matter how much or little time you have to give. I can assure you; your mom will appreciate it.
