Happy Mother’s Day

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”
~ Abraham Lincoln

Moms should be celebrated every day. However, May 14th is an extra-special day honoring all moms. A day set aside to say “thank you” for all she does. My mom lives in South Africa. I can’t tell you how difficult it’s been living away from her and missing special holidays especially Mother’s Day. This year I feel so blessed and grateful to be spending Mother’s Day with my momma. I’ve been thinking about this day ever since she told me about her plans for a trip to Boston.

Surfing the Internet for a Mother’s Day gift started to stress me out. Gift giving is already a difficult task and when it comes to mom, it felt nearly impossible. I felt the pressure to find the perfect gift to make up for all the Mother’s Day I missed. So, I asked my mom if there was anything that she wanted and she said, “All I want is to spend time with you”.

Then it hit me, Mother’s Day doesn’t have to be about big, expensive gifts or grand gestures. What really matters are the memories – those special things you do with your loved ones. It’s the “presence not presents” that means the most.

I decided to take the time to pamper my mom and make her feel like a queen on her special day… and SHE LOVED IT!!!

Remember, however you choose to honor your mom today, it’s the time you spend with each other and the connection you make that matters the most. Wishing all you fabulous and beautiful mom’s a Happy Mother’s Day.

    It is so nice to spend some quality time with your mother, as a mum myself I do so much appreciate to spend time with my kids. Who does not love to be pampered, a spa day is such a fabulous idea Nikki! I hope you’ve had a wonderful time with your mother.
