Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. Did anyone need a reminder? Canadians celebrate Mother’s Day the second Sunday in May and it’s the most popular festival after Christmas and Valentine’s Day. A day to pay tribute to your mother for all the support and love she showers on you.
In the United Kingdom, Mother’s Day is also known as Mothering Sunday. The holiday dates back centuries. Children were often sent off to work in other villages and Mothering Sunday became a day for children to visit their families. Mother’s Day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent.
But no matter the day or month, Mother’s should be honoured every day.
There are four reasons that come to mind about why one can’t share this day with mom.
Mom has passed away. If so, why not spend the day with a woman who is alone? You’ll make her day. And don’t forget to tell her what a great woman she is.
Mom may have Alzheimer’s and unfortunately she doesn’t remember you. If so, pour over photos and relive the wonderful memories you once shared.
Mom lives too far away. If so, pick up the phone and thank her for all the amazing things she’s done for you.
Mom and you are estranged. If so, put the past behind you. Reach out, and mend the relationship. If it’s too difficult to call, at least send an email. Life is too short for regrets.
I’m blessed to have a marvelous mom and I plan on spoiling her.
“Mother, the ribbons of your love are woven around my heart.”
Happy Mother’s Day to mommies everywhere.
