Favorite Mothers Day Stories and Senior Care at Home
There’s no doubt about the fact that our mothers are very important and we wouldn’t be here today without them. Mother’s Day is a wonderful time to sit and reflect on the ways that our moms sacrificed their time, sweat and tears to make sure that we were fed, dressed and sufficiently stimulated. Mom might have been the household chef and was either really good at her position or was able to make the smoke detector go off on a regular basis. Regardless of our mothers’ skills, they always tried and did their best. That is why Mother’s day is so important to recognize their efforts and to celebrate their unconditional love.
This past Mother’s day should set as a reminder that the women in our lives are important and were crucial to help shape our lives. Take Mom or Grandmother out to breakfast and pick her brain for favorite stories and what it was like for her when she was your age. You may be surprised to learn she had very similar situations and can learn from how she overcame her obstacles.
This year, take the time to reflect on some funny or heartwarming stories involving Mom and collect these from other family members as well. It might even be nice to see these stories typed out with some digitally scanned old photos in a website-created photobook. It’s nice to see the effort in preparation and it’s definitely “the thought that counts”.
When you are finished collecting favorite mother’s day stories, and the photo book is complete, you can begin a new chapter with recent photographs with Mom and the rest of the family. Try to capture candid moments so the memory is more permanent in the photograph.
Mother’s day may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean it’s not necessary to take time out of our busy lives to make sure the moms in our lives know how much they are appreciated and loved.
