CAN'T SPEND MOTHER'S DAY WITH YOUR MOM?
Considering doing something to bless some other mothers out there. Here are some ideas:
*Give out flowers or small "happy" gifts to mothers at a homeless shelter.
*Make handmade cards and deliver them to mothers at a nursing home.
*Invite mothers who aren't near their children or whose children have passed away to eat lunch with you.
*Bake muffins or cookies and deliver them to mothers who are alone.
*Send e-cards to mothers out there who might be going thru a rough time.
*Present a free babysitting coupon to a mother with a lot of little ones so she can go have a date with her hubby or just have some time alone to go shopping, meet a friend for lunch, or go to a day spa.
*Call women in your life who need to hear from someone on this day.
*Take the time to say "thank you" to the women in your life who have been spiritual mothers to you.
Mother's Day can be wonderful, but it can also be a sad day for many. Redeeming that day for the sake of someone else can turn a hard occasion into a blessing for the women you reach out to ... and yourself.
