Being a mother is hard, but being a mom during a world pandemic, that’s a whole new experience. The role of mom has definitely taken on some extra responsibilities these days, including at-homeschool teacher, family entertainer, and grief counselor. And many moms are juggling this with other essential tasks, such as doing their salaried job from home.
That’s why this year, it’s important that we show our moms just how incredible they are and how much we appreciate the way they support us, encourage us, and keep us all connected—even from miles away!
If you’re feeling the pressure to give your mom or wife a special celebration this Mother’s Day, you’re not alone. With restaurants still closed, travel restricted, and the worry that you might put mom at health risk during a visit, it’s easy to start feeling overwhelmed or hopeless to give her the amazing day she so deserves.
As most people will be honoring their moms from a distance this year, many creative thinkers are coming up with fun, inspiring ways to honor their moms at home or from a distance. We wanted to share some ideas we discovered with you today:
If you’ll be near mom this year, you can take this brunch idea outdoors and plan a special at-home brunch decor and menu for mom to enjoy!
This Mother’s Day idea might be a great way to kickstart a weekly family game night, where everyone comes together for some friendly competition and quality time.
The truth is mom isn’t the only one who needs some special attention this year. As we continue to face these uncertain times, many of us—no matter what age—turn to our moms or other individuals who have played a significant, maternal presence in our lives for comfort and support. It’s important that we find ways to stay connected to our loved ones this Mother’s Day and every day to connect and empower one another!
From all of us at The Calli Institute, we wish you a safe, happy, and healthy Mother’s Day weekend!
