Only a few days away, I want to wish all the mothers a most Happy Mother’s Day!
Regardless of whether families celebrate through gifts or quality time, this holiday is cherished by many for many good reasons. This week I reflected on how much this day meant to my own Mother. She never directly said that it was her favorite holiday although her actions and beaming pride said it all. Having mailed all the cards out to loved ones, this post is a continuation of this celebration as well as tribute to the woman who taught me the importance of this holiday.
A month into motherhood and all smiles.
From my home to yours I wish you all a most happy Mother’s Day!!! Are you ready for this weekend? I am happy to say that all my cards and packages are addressed and on their way to their recipients’ hands. How do you celebrate this special day? From brunches to cards to quality time with loved ones there are many ways to honor the mothers in our lives. Over the years my celebrations have evolved as more and more mothers enter my life. Although my great respect for this holiday originates from my Mom whom loved this holiday so very much.
Last year, I started a new tradition which I plan to continue this year. In addition to sending cards and reaching out to loved ones, I watch a Robert Redford movie on Mother’s Day. My Mom and I disagreed about many things in life ranging my career choices, how to make sweet bread, even who read what book first (silly, I know!) but we both shared/ share a love for Robert Redford movies. It does not matter what age he is, what genre, who are his co-stars as long as he is the leading man we would sit argument free and happily content for the duration of the film. Although I can’t go to brunch with her or call her to hear all about it, by watching one of these movies we can spend quality time together in spirit. In my heart and soul, I know she is smiling and that is the greatest gift of all.
