Ever struggle with finding your mom the perfect present? These Mother’s Day gift ideas are perfect for that hard to buy for favorite mom!


Mother’s Day will be celebrated in unique ways around the world this year.

Through zoom and Skype calls, FaceTime and lots of selfies.

Yes, indeed. This new virus has disrupted every aspect of our lives, from our work life to our home life.

Mothers everywhere (well, those of us with adult kids anyway!) are mourning the loss of family celebrations.

Anyone else have a quarantine birthday from a socially acceptable six feet away?

Yep, me, too. But I’m determined to make the best of this in spite of a husband who is unhealthy with many unknowns.

It’s a CHOICE to seek joy amidst the fears and struggles. We are MORE than our circumstances.

I think as mothers we can also help our children by giving them a LIST of the types of gifts we enjoy. Why make them guess (especially the men in our lives?)
