And happy Friday. I had a different post prepared for today, but certain things didn’t quite work out. SO, I thought I would wish all the Moms out there a Happy Mother’s Day!
One of my Mother’s Day Outfits
Last year when Mom visited and we went to a French restaurant.
Years ago when we went out for sushi and martinis.
A few years ago at the Charlotte Symphony
A few years ago when mom visited.
A Mother’s Day weekend
It is a different kind of Mother’s Day, for sure this weekend.
Mothers are taking on many roles as the Caronivirus continues to keep us inside.
I have an appreciation for moms that are working by day, only to later teach their kids after their job.
Or perhaps ladies that are SAH moms having to teach school to their kids, and are learning how to do so themselves.
I applaud you for doing so! It’s quite a job.
So I hope everyone is celebrating their mom and showing appreciation.
My Mom. My mom is alone in Pittsburgh. My Dad passed away 4 years ago. Her plan was to visit after we all went to the beach this summer in Avalon, NJ. My hubby was to take her with us on the way home to Charlotte. Only that isn’t happening.
So, my brothers (2) and sister and I make an appoint to call her almost daily to see how she is and what she is doing. Just to chat.
We siblings had the idea to create a video each, speaking of what mom means, and giving it to my brother to splice to whether for Mother’s Day, along with some pictures we each submit. This will be a surprise. We are then going to video call early in the morning so we can all speak to her and give her the video.
We have planned some other “treats” for her day.
My other brother Matt, bought and sent 4 pounds of gummy bears, caramel popcorn and Godiva Truffles. ( Mom is serious about her Candy!)
My sister figured wine would be appreciated at this time as well.
We hope to get a good picture of mom wearing the sweatshirt ( “No worries), eating candy and drinking wine. 🙂
My siblings, Mom and I are all going to wish her a Happy Mother’s Day via Zoom this year.
So beyond the gifts, just let Mom know how much she means.
That will always be the same no matter how different the day.
I’d love to hear how you are celebrating Mother’s Day this year?
