This Sunday, May 13th will be the one day we get to show Mum our love and appreciation for all that she does.Our mums spend countless hours being housekeeper,cook,taxi driver,teacher,doctor (to many scrapes and scratches),manager,financial consultant,child carer and some whilst holding down a full or part time job.
Where would we all be without our mums and their endless hours of sacrifice? I think most mums would agree more than anything they simply want to spend the day enjoying time with their families and feeling appreciated.There are many gift ideas, hampers,spa treatments,gift cards,clothing,flowers,chocolates etc.
As a mum myself I think most of us love nothing more than breakfast in bed and being OFF DUTY for the day.Handmade cards and poems are the best and most enjoyable part of mothers day, and what we cherish as our little ones grow into young men and women.
Mother's day is not just for mothers, it also represents a special day for mother figures such as foster mothers,grandmothers,guardians,relatives who play a mothering role and stepmums.
An interesting fact, although Mother's day is celebrated around the world did you know that the act of giving gifts on Mother's day was actually started by an Australian woman Janet Heyden in 1924, who used to give gifts to lonely aged mothers.
So please give your Mum a big hug Sunday morning and tell her how much you love and appreciate her.
Next week I will give you an update on how we went with the Sutherland Relay for Life.Was a fantastic day, with lots of entertainment, lots of walking and running and many families and friends spending time together celebrating and remembering.
