May is the month for Mother’s Day, and with all that’s going on in the world today, Mother’s Day may be a little bit different this year. But that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate your mother and wish her well on her special day.
Many are scratching their heads wondering what they can do to make this Mother’s Day a special one. Here are a few ideas.
Have something delivered
If your parents aren't skittish about deliveries, you can have something delivered straight to her address. Some ideas - a gift from Amazon, flowers, or a tasty treat - think...cookies or fruit. Because of the demand for delivery right now, be sure to order as early as possible. (Although I don’t think mom will mind waiting a little longer this year due to the circumstances.)
Make a card
Unless you had the forethought to pick up a card early, you may not have a store bought Mother’s Day card this year. Consider making one or have the children and grandchildren make one or two. Include her favorite poem or consider penning an original poem to let her know how much she’s loved and appreciated.
Facetime or Zoom
Chances are if you’re older and live on your own, you won’t be able to visit your mom on Mother’s Day, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to “see” her. Arrange to Facetime or use some other virtual app, such as Zoom, so you can see your mother face to face and wish her a happy Mother’s Day!
