5 Ways To Celebrate All-Star Moms This Mother’s Day
by Cara Strickland
Becoming a mom is one of the best things I’ve ever undertaken, but it’s also, without exaggeration, the toughest thing I’ve ever done. Something that I imagine made it harder for all moms this past year was the added challenge of staying connected to the people who lift us up, listen, and offer advice grounded in their experiences. Yet, we rose to the occasion even if at times it felt like no one saw or appreciated all the things – big or small – that we do as moms.
All of the moms I know are handling whatever life throws at them (and lately, it’s been a lot) with resilience and fierce love for their kids. Every day, they go above and beyond for their families, and there’s no better way to describe each of these women than as true all-stars.
So, as Mother’s Day approaches, let’s take the opportunity to make it more than just a greeting card holiday. Let’s use it as a reminder that moms deserve to be celebrated year-round, because they’re out there juggling all the things every day, and without them, life would be a much bumpier ride.
Whether you’re looking to celebrate a single mom you know, your spouse or partner, a friend, your own mom, or even yourself (yes, that’s a thing!), here are a few ideas that can be a springboard for a Mother’s Day celebration that lasts a lot longer than one day.
No matter how you choose to celebrate the all-star moms in your life, remember that Mother’s Day is only the beginning. We could all use some positive energy, celebratory vibes, and words of encouragement all year long — so please, by all means, don’t be shy when it comes to celebrating the mom in your life year-round.
