From Left to Right: Sister (Stephanie), me, Mom (Sharon)
Mother's Day is just around the corner and it is time to think about all the great things that mothers do for us. While many people struggle with their parental relationships, others can be as close as best friends. In my life, I have seen families at both ends of the spectrum and everything in between.
Whether you want to show appreciation to your actual mother or someone who has been a mother-like figure in your life, there are many great ways to show some love today. With me living so far away from my mother at this point in time, I like to call up a delivery service and send dinner for her and dad so she does not have to cook today. It's not a lot, but it's something I can do to make her day a little easier.
Need some gift ideas? Tomorrow, I will be sharing a recipe on my social media for a Mother's Day Brunch idea that you can make ahead. Below, I have shared a video of some great DIY gift ideas you can make from things you probably have around the house. If your mom likes to read, why not gift her the Into the West Saga Serial books? (<--- click and go) You can buy the ebook versions and she can download them on Mother's Day. It doesn't get much more convenient than that.
Don't forget, we also have the last sneak peek of part 5, Into the West: Last Showdown coming this Sunday! Watch my social media for the link, I hope to finish writing it this week and get it published as soon as possible!
With today being the Friday Funnies, I thought a few joke with moms would be good. I hope they bring a smile to your face!
