5 Ways to Celebrate the Mothers in Your Life This Mother’s Day

If you’re lucky enough to still have your mom with you, cherish it, spend the day with her, and remember she won’t always be with you. For those of you have lost your mother long ago or perhaps recently, it is still a day to celebrate the mothers in your life. Being a mother is a deeply rewarding role but it’s also a lot of work and self-sacrifice and it’s also very nice when someone remembers to honor you because you are a mom.

Remember too, we are all “mothers” in one sense because we are nurturers. We nurture each other, our children, our friend’s children, the dog, our husbands and most any living thing that will allow it. Biology doesn’t make us mothers. It is the nurturing, compassion, love, and caring that makes us all mothers.

This year, extend your Mother’s Day celebration to include your best friend mom, co-workers who are mothers, any new mothers you may know, nieces and other family members. And don’t forget your friends who aren’t mothers but have nurtured you.

Here are 5 ways to celebrate the mothers in your life this Mother’s Day:

1. Buy cards for everyone on your list and write a note thanking them for being a mother. For the non-mothers, tell them the ways they are like a mother to you.

2. Book a spa day for as many mom’s as your budget allows. Send a card on Mother’s Day inviting them to spend an afternoon with you and the other mothers in your life to celebrate motherhood.

3. Give the mothers an inexpensive journal where they can reflect on their lives and create a keepsake for generations to come. My Mom – Her Story. Her Words  is an interview journal with prompts for the mom to write stories about her life and experiences.

4. Make them laugh. Give them the book Reasons My Kid Is Crying by Greg Pembroke. Whether they have a toddler, ever had a toddler or just watched other parents with their toddlers, they will love this very funny book.

5. No time for buying cards, ordering books, or planning spa days? Just pick up the phone and call them. Wish them a Happy Mother’s Day. Text if you must (don’t want to interrupt their own celebration, etc.) but don’t send an email or an ecard. It’s too impersonal.

For our own mothers, they are typically at an age where they want/need very little so we’ve got three suggestions at different price points, we believe any older mom would appreciate.
