Mother's Day is Sunday, May 8th
Mom's are the best. For this year's Mother Day I wrote about three things that my mother gave me.
- From my mother I got my love for walking. We passed afternoons exploring Brooklyn neighborhoods. As we began to travel together we would take the time to learn a new place by wandering the streets, feeling the energy of neighborhoods.
- My mother taught me compassion. Her understanding of the needs of people and varying communication styles. Whenever we meet new people my mom has way of bringing them in and making them feel at home.
- I always felt loved. I always knew that no matter what I was my mother's priority. She was there for every cold, every school performance, every tear, every milestone. I know my mom sacrificed and worked hard to make sure I was cared for. I am thankful for her encouragement, wisdom and love.
Now that I live in a different city from my mother I don't always get to travel home for occasions like Mother's Day or her birthday. It is important for me to make her feel special on these days, therefore I surprise her with flowers sent to her home. The flowers are always a nice surprise, they brighten up the apartment and make my mom feel special.
I usually order the flowers from 1-800-Flowers. I like ordering from 1-800-Flowers because it's easy.
