Say please, say thank you. Be kind, responsible, and of good character. Be noble, be honorable, be honest. Have dignity, have strength, work hard, respect others and respect yourself. Mother May I say, THANK YOU.
For the lessons you’ve taught me, for what you’ve enstilled in me, and others, THANK YOU. For everything you’ve given, sacrificed, said, showed me, and everyone around you, THANK YOU.
Today we honor all those who raised, influenced, supported, encouraged, created and inspired, sacrificed for and invested in us. Whether a birth mother, adopted mother, mother figure, or a sister/cousin/Aunt/friend/coworker who is a mother (or mother figure) to someone you know.
Here’s some great ideas this Mother’s Day to honor that special lady:
- Bring her breakfast in bed
- Give her an at-Home spa day (Massage, pedicure, manicure)
- Give her a day of rest
- Take her to lunch and an outdoor (if you can find one) movie
- Host a brunch in the park
- Take her on a drive to a historic place/beach/museum (whatever her fancy)
- Take her shopping
- Lookup venue specials in your area and make a day of it!
