What’s your favorite Mother’s Day memory? Did you make a hand-print card and a bouquet of paper flowers in elementary school, anxiously waiting to take your creation out of the backpack and present it to your mom on her special day? Did your own child make you breakfast in bed, even though you hated the thought of getting crumbs on the sheets? Perhaps there was another special woman in your life … an aunt or a neighbor or someone else who did “mom” things for you.
Who is the special woman in your life today? Is she someone who taught you things you’ll carry with you forever? Someone who cares about you from many miles away? Someone whose smile lights up a room and makes the world a better place? Mother’s Day is the perfect time to say, “Thank you!”
If you’re lucky enough to live close to this wonderful woman, why invite her to a celebration lunch this Mother’s Day? Make it a special time, just for the two of you to get together. Pull out a couple of old crystal wine glasses and some pretty plates for a luncheon on the porch. Or, load up the picnic basket with paper plates, cups and a blanket, stock the cooler with food and Duplin wine, and head out to a favorite family spot. Whatever you do, remember that it’s about time together, celebrating the woman who gave you so much!
