Once you lose your Mother, everyday is different. If you are a Baby Boomer, you were probably raised by a stay at home Mom. She took care of all your basic needs, eating, sleeping and cleanliness. She was responsible for your education, helping you solve a difficult math problem or making sure your homework was completed. She was your disciplinarian when you broke the rules and your accomplice when “Dad didn’t need to know.” She was a lot of things, and just one thing – Mom, and because she was “Just a Mom”, she probably never got the respect she deserved.
Now as an adult, with children of your own, you realize the importance and unconditional love only a Mother can have for her children. On Mother’s day, this can be especially hard when your Mom is no longer with you. Celebrate Me Home helps families create lasting memories; a memorial photo tribute is a way to gather memories and share them with future generations.
As a Mother myself, I realize all children to some degree, take their Mother’s love for granted. You can count the stages of your life by the relationships you had with your Mom. As a small child you cried when you were away from her. As a teenager anything your Mom did, said or wore mortified you. When you were a young adult she started to become your friend, and only when you had children of your own did you fully understand the complex love of Mother and child.
Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate Mom, whether she is with you, if she lives far away or if she has passed away. Celebrate your Mother by finding the gifts of her life- the values she instilled and the lessons she taught.
*Greeting Cards were made for Mother’s day! So write your Mother a note, make sure to include what made her special, your fondest memories and what you have learned from her.
- *Participate in an activity your Mom loved, garden, bake, or watch her favorite movie.
- *Display Moms favorite items
