Be sure to make that phone call. Be sure to buy flowers. Be sure to say the words, “I love you.”
Mother’s Day is coming. That’s why!
Mothers Day in Canada is celebrated on the second Sunday in the month of May. People pay tribute to their mothers on the
day and thank them for their constant support and love.
In Canada, cards and flowers are the most commonly used methods of expressing love for moms.
Mothers Day is a busy day for flower shops and the sale of cards breaks records on that day.
It is amazing how the message inside a card can spell out what a son or daughter may want to say to their mom, but, can’t seem to find the words.
Buy a card and problem solved!
Of course, for the younger generation, making a Mother’s Day card is an even better way of saying, “I love you, mom.
It’s also a day when loving and caring families really do honour their mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers in whatever way they can. It is a day that the female gender is, or at least, should, be pampered and taken out of the kitchen.
Phone calls from all over the world escalate on Mother’s Day. “Hello mom, just called to say “Happy Mother’s Day, I love you. Wow! What mother would not want to hear those words, especially on her special day.
Rimbey Review asked this question on facebook: What is your favourite Mother’s Day gift and/or activity. The ladies below were kind enough to respond.
Kim Hartman: My favourite Mother’s Day activity is a nice dinner, either out in a restaurant or at home. Either way, nothaving to make it and, more importantly,
not having to clean up (is what I want), or a nice quad ride with the family or just adriver or maybe a family skeet shoot.
My favourite gift is hard to say. All I want is for my husband and kids to do is think of me when purchasing or making a gift.
It makes no difference what it is, as long as they have me in mind. For me, it’s not the gift or the dollar value.
It’s the pride of thinking/knowing that my kids/hubby think about me and love me and appreciate me and what I do and who I am to them. I’d most certainly give my life for any of them and I have great kids and great hubby. I’m thankful for them for sure.
Kelly McLean: My favourite Mother’s Day gift is just simply being thanked and spending time with my family. My five- year-old is quite charming and knows how to really touch my heart with his loving words of affirmation.
Michelle Pilote: My favorite gifts…. homemade cards from my kids!!
As they grow older and move onto being adults they still make them… fancy or not they are a piece of them giving back to me.
Lura Babcock: My favorite activity and gift is when my family is all under one roof for the day. It’s loud, messy and full of love. That’s the best.
Eleshia Chow: My favorite gift is not having to cook or clean up for a day.
