One of our regular contributors sent me a bunch of ideas for topics last week and one was about Mother’s Day, which is rapidly approaching. (It’s not this Sunday but the next Sunday.)
She wrote: “I’ve always been fascinated by the irony that some moms’ idea of the perfect mother’s day is spent AWAY from their children! And do moms “retaliate” at Father’s Day if the Mother’s Day wasn’t up to expectations?”
My current quandary is do you celebrate your mom on Mother’s Day or yourself or both?
Do you like to stay at home for a special meal? Sleep in (it’s on Sunday though so many might have church)? Go out to lunch? Do you honor your mother or spend time with your own family?
Do you retaliate if the celebration’s wasn’t up to snuff? Do you think moms or dads do a better job putting on a celebration for the other?
