Sure, Mother’s Day is all about M-O-M, but the day means something a little different to each of us. We asked several mom bloggers for their thoughts on the special day.
“Mother’s Day is a day to remember how blessed I am to have my wonderful children and of course a break from cooking since I do think I'm entitled to at least one day off.”– Kim Luedeman, Frugal Minded Mom
“Mother's Day to me is spending a day with my family and also being pampered. We do things that I love to do and I might even get a nap!” – Shannon Arce, Crafty Mama in ME
“Mother's Day means thanking my mother for putting up with me and thanking my daughter for loving me no matter what - which is kind of the same thing, I guess, now that I think about it.” - Pauline Campos, Aspiring Mama and author of “ BabyFat: Adventures in Motherhood, Muffin Tops, & Trying to Stay Sane”
“Mother’s Day means that I will get up early, wipe noses, change diapers, eat burned
toast and cry every time I remember how quickly the time is passing.” - Christy Dazé
Emanuel, Stained with Style
“Mother's Day means celebrating that I never give up and keep on loving even when it's really hard and messy. It's celebrating that even in my greatest imperfections I am worthy of being loved completely.” –Michelle Cox, Build Family Connection
“I'm a single mother without a significant other, so we use Mother's Day to focus on our extended family, especially my mother and grandmother. It's a time to step back and show the mothers in our lives how much we appreciate them. For us that means hosting a brunch at our home and giving each mom a bouquet of flowers. We keep it simple and use the time to make memories together and enjoy each other's company.” - Shanna Gebhard,
“Mother's Day is a day to (especially) express my gratitude for the woman who gave me life. It's especially poignant this year since my husband's mom passed away at the end of last year. It's a reminder to never take my mom for granted!” - Kimberly Coleman, Mom In the City
“Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate and shower prayers on that special person, your mother. It's a day when we recognize how our mother’s efforts shaped our life and personality. It is her unconditional love, which made us mentally prepared to face life.” - Bev Carter, Eclectic Red Barn
