Celebrating mothers has been around for a very long time, but it was not made an official holiday until 1914 by Anna Jarvis. Before it became the secular holiday it is today, it was celebrated during Lent and was the time you went back to your, “mother church.” Interesting fact, but I’m glad we’ve incorporated focusing on moms a little more because, let’s face it, they do a lot for us!
Moms not only wipe away the tears and kiss our boo boo’s, but they make sure our lives run as smoothly as possible. Sometimes they do their job so well we don’t even see what a hot mess our lives would be without mom. Moms are constantly seeing and doing so that she can be one step ahead of her family. Sound exhausting? It is. And because of that, moms deserve some downtime, some decompression time, some self care to help her fill her cup back up.
I’m inclined to say that mom needs more than one day, but let’s just make sure that her official day is one of the best! A good start is to make sure she has plenty of time for herself (while she enjoys your thoughtful gifts). The best thoughtful gift is a homemade gift, and the perfect homemade gift is Lavender Bath Salts!
