“Mother is another word for love.” –unknown
Most moms will tell you that the sacrifices she makes for the love of her children goes without explaining. I personally believe that it’s by the divine presence of love within her, which is gracefully expressed through her role as a mother, is what naturally makes her want to move heaven and earth to ensure that her family feels equally loved, protected and cared for as much as possible. And that's why, during a year where valuable relationships have become even more meaningful, it’s good to take time this Mother’s Day to reconnect, be present and thank them for all the love and support that they continue to give unselfishly, and to show sincere appreciation for all that they are.
But this is also why it can be hard sometimes to find the perfect gift to give to someone who has given you just about everything. But know that whatever gift you decide to give, or however you choose to celebrate your mom and the mom-figures in your life this season, be sure to give in the same way in which they have given to you throughout the years- with love and from the heart.
