Make Mother's Day special

Ideas to help make this Mother’s Day special despite COVID-19 social distancing include compiling a playlist of Mom’s favorite songs, writing a new email each day that inspires Mom and tackling a chore or task Mom may not do for herself.

Each and every day a new woman becomes a mother for the first time or all over again.

Being a mother changes a person’s life in dramatic ways.

Mother’s Day, falling Sunday, May 10 this year, is a great time to honor mothers and attempt to give back just a portion of the tireless love and devotion moms offer their children.

Some children provide large gestures, while others feel it’s the little things that can help a mom to feel appreciated.

For those needing a little inspiration on treating their mothers in special ways, consider these ideas that can be accomplished in the time of COVID-19 social distancing.

• Make mom a breakfast in bed with her favorite morning treats.

• Enjoy a movie at home with mom. Let her pick the flick and share her favorite film with you.

• Agree to not bicker for the entire day, especially if you are prone to getting into arguments with siblings.

• Put together a collage of photos from moments you have shared with mom or your family.

• Cook a meal together and learn about everyone’s favorite recipes or the family history.

• Treat mom to a day off from her chores. Tackle all of the jobs she normally does for the family.

• Bake a delicious dessert that mom will absolutely devour.

• Prepare a jar of mom’s favorite candies wrapped in pieces of paper that have loving sentiments written on them.

• Compile a playlist of songs and artists mom prefers and download them to her phone or other digital device.

• Write a new email each day with an inspirational quote or special words of love for mom.

• Tackle a task that she may not want to do herself, such as washing the exterior of her car and vacuuming the interior.

• Allow her to work on a favorite craft or read a book without interruption.

Mother’s Day gift ideas should come from the heart and can show mothers near and far how much they are appreciated and loved.
