Mother's Day Video:

Hopefully, if you choose to take a picture of yourselves for your Mom for Mother's Day, you will be a little bit more successful than these two guys: (they did have the right idea though...Mom's love getting pictures of their kids as a gift!)

I could really relate to the video above! My kids got along great when they were young, but then went through a stage where they couldn't stand each other, which was super hard. At times, I thought there was no hope, but I'm glad to say that now they are older, they are great friends!

Mothers Day is a great day of the year to put aside all sibling fighting and give your Mom a nice and peaceful day. As a Mom...that is one of the best gifts for the day!

The Motherless

Mothers Day can also be a sad day! Many children are Motherless, or separated from their Mother by divorce, distance, or death. Many Mother's have lost children through miscarriage, or death, and this can be a difficult day to get through. Many Mom's are in the military and stationed overseas during Mothers Day.

Whatever the reason, if you know a Motherless child, try to include them in your own family plans for the day!

  • Stepmother's on Mothers Day - There is now officially a Stepmother's Day, which is observed on the Sunday after Mother's Day.  In 2016, it falls on May 15, 2016.  I think this is great to have a separate day to honor Stepmom's! Call me selfish, but as a divorced Mom, with two kids, I feel like "Mother's Day" is mine!
