Moms can celebrate their children’s unique qualities. Children will have their ups and downs and strengths and weaknesses, and moms grow with their children’s unique challenges.
Have fun. Mother’s Day might be a day with humor where moms get the center stage and a chance to remind the children of all the messes that mom has cleaned up, and all the times mom has bailed the kids out and how they’ve come out on top because of her. Look at family photos and videos and enjoy how the family has evolved — all because of mom’s love!
I know many mothers who feel that every day is special just because they’ve had the opportunity to be someone special’s mother. Mother’s Day is just a more celebrated version of that. Enjoy it!
