We don’t want to let this pandemic hinder us all from celebrating and giving love to our Mum, grandma, wife, sister, friend, or mum-at-hearts this Mother’s day.
This pandemic is teaching us a lot about the importance of both time and life. The importance of spending quality time with loved ones, of telling others how much we care for them and of taking the time to care for ourselves. It’s teaching us to not take for granted the simple luxuries of life... essentially, to celebrate life no matter what happens.
Since almost all of us are on lockdown to a degree, it will be difficult for a lot of us adults to celebrate and spend time with our mothers, especially during Mother’s Day weekend. BUT! Good news is, it’s totally possible for us to still make her feel loved and appreciated - especially now. ;)
