The holiday we know as Mother’s Day in its essence, is a celebration of the nurturers, the givers, the comforters in our lives that we appreciate so much.
With social isolation very much in effect, not everyone gets to be with their loved ones, especially if they have compromised health, are very far away or are no longer in our lives. If you can’t be with your mom, Mother’s Day is still an excellent opportunity to celebrate the mother figures in your life, from coaches, aunts, to whoever has been there to lift you up. Life really is a wild ride, so it’s important to express your gratitude for the special people in your life.
Call them, love on them, or buy them something from our gift guide below.
