This past weekend we celebrated Mother’s Day in a way we never have before. We decided to take mom out for the day and treat her, along with ourselves, to a relaxing day out. What we discovered was that it was not what we did that was so unique (shopping, spa, dinner) but rather the newness of the experience that we shared together that made it special. We do not usually focus on ourselves as much as we probably should. We find that we are caregivers most of the time. And although we certainly shop and have dinner out, going somewhere new and different turned the day into a celebratory one.
We were three generations of women that Sunday, each one of us with a different perspective and point of view. Getting away for the day served to give us shared memories that will last forever.
We love you, mom!
