The day is coming for all of us to appreciate the things our moms do throughout the year. Blessings go out to all moms, the person bringing us into this world, teaching right from wrong, and advising our steps in life. Sometimes all the things our moms do for us, we can take for granted. Here are a few ways to thank moms on her special day.

For many just getting together at the house, having a pot luck dinner, joining around the fire pit, or arranging a picnic with the gang is the favorite way to gather. A day of reflection, of moms taking care of the family, appreciation of her day to day duties, here’s the chance to spoil her, and to give her a chore free break to make the day memorable .
For all of us that are without (at the moment), due to circumstances, location, and the passing on. Hoping the recalling of fond memories is fresh in the minds of all. Prayers to those unable to be moms, may each child’s life you touch be many. Every one of us on earth is born and blessed with a mother. May we all have a happy and healthy Mothers Day !!!
