In the rush and busyness of everyday living it’s all too easy to take your family, especially your parents, for granted. It’s only natural to think they’ll always be there because they always have been. As we get older the fog begins to clear and we watch as those around us begin to lose their parents, one by one. At some point that light bulb moment happens and we, too, finally realize we won’t have our own parents with us forever. As convenience would have it, there are holidays built into our years that give us ongoing opportunities to stop and celebrate those who brought us into this life. Those holidays are Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
This year Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 8, 2016. It’s a day to take some time out of your busy schedule and celebrate your mother, mother’s around you and mother’s soon-to-be. Whether it’s your own mother, grandmother, or a daughter celebrating her very first Mother’s Day as a brand new mother, there are plenty of places to go and things to do to let them know you appreciate them. For just this one special day, won’t you let it entirely be about them?
Many restaurants will be holding special brunches and have select Mother’s Day entrees on their menus. Check the websites or call the restaurants for more information about what’s going on for the holiday.
