She’s the one that used to wait on line for hours, just to get the closest seat possible for your school play. She’s also the one who used to get up at 6 a.m. to make your favorite baloney and cheese sandwich for lunch at school.
And also the one who used to sit bedside when that high fever hit you.
Who is it? Auntie Em?
No, of course not, we’re talking about dear mom, Your Mom, and it’s that time of year when we all show our mothers how much we deeply appreciate the unconditional love she gave us as a child and the friendship we share as an adult.
Physicians First Messages is here to remind you that Mother’s Day, of course, is Sunday, May 14, and that there’s a number of things, small and large, you can do to make mom feel like the special person she is.
Remember, in most cases, mom is not looking to be taken on a 10-day cruise to the Caribbean or for a three-hour marathon at the local spa.
It’s mom, and there’s nobody that believes the expression ‘it’s the thought that counts’ more than her.
So, for starters, how about keeping it sweet and simple, and picking up a beautiful card to go along with freshly cut flowers or a colorful plant?
Want it a bit more elaborate? How about using the same flower/card gift with a gift certificate to either her favorite restaurant or department store?
Remember, more often than not, you’ll probably save your mom time by getting her a gift certificate because she’ll be able to purchase something she truly likes.
OK, so you want to make it somewhat of a bigger deal where she can share her gift with just you or you and your family? Hey, how about dinner and a movie?
Simple and you get to enjoy the day as well.
Want to get the grandchildren involved? Nothing warms mom’s heart more than homemade gifts, like a card.
Listen, the possibilities are endless, we’re just trying to make it simple, but meaningful for you at the same time. But keep in mind, regardless of whatever you do, Physicians First Messages wants to remind you the most important thing is making sure you reach out to your biggest fan one way or another.
Even if you can’t see her come Sunday, a phone call and an "I love you" will most certainly hold mom over until the next time you get to see her.
Enjoy Mother’s Day!
