This month we decided to take a detour off of our monthly design blog and pay a special tribute to all beautiful Mothers!!
On Mother’s Day, we sit aside TIME to honor all Mothers, a special day to acknowledge their love and devotion to their children and grandchildren.
Ask any Mother and she will say the most precious gift to receive is TIME. TIME with her family and TIME for herself. Flowers, jewelry, perfume and handbags are all terrific gifts for any Mom, but TIME is priceless.
We’ve taken some TIME to offer a few creative suggestions to let Mom know just how much she means to you! Suggestions that go beyond one day, ideas that will spark new habits and will continue to give all year round (to both of you)!
Ride bikes together, take a hike, walk in the park or go kayaking. Create the best of TIMES and new healthy habits challenging yourselves with activities that each of you will enjoy. Make a date once a month to connect and plug in to your relationship.
Treat Mom (and yourself) to a new restaurant each month for a year. Have fun trying new cuisine in a variety of environments and locations. You will have a ball sharing memories of the past and planning for the future. Food and drink have a soulful way to connect and celebrate life’s achievements.
TIME to Make a Reservation!
Learn Something New Together
So fun and so easy — teach your Mom all of the tricks on her i-phone and she can teach you to knit! Enroll in an art or jewelry making class OR think big and take horseback riding lessons. Exploring opportunities and combining your interests will be exciting for both of you and a way to learn something new about one another. TIME after TIME, no matter where you go or what you learn, the companionship you share will be cherished forever.
When one class ends, find another!
Combining your interests may be the right outlet for both of you to lend your TIME and talents to. You will find it especially rewarding devoting your energy to a variety of opportunities in your community. Senior citizens, the parks, local animal shelters and youth groups are a few volunteering opportunities that are available within most commonwealths.
TIME to give back!
Write YOUR Family History Book Together
Our Moms and Grandmothers are our very own history teachers. Take TIME researching your family’s history and heritage with the women (and men) in your life. Connect the dots and the years, finding your ancestors and learning where you come from and your DNA. Have fun traveling the world exploring your story! Collect photos, interview family members, research articles, write it down and create your very own family history book to pass down for generations to come.
This is definitely a gift that will give for a lifeTIME.
Hire a Professional Service for Mom
What a treat to have your lawn mowed, house cleaned or car washed on a regular basis! Giving Mom TIME off to do other things she finds enjoyable just makes life easier! Be creative with services that are meaningful to her. Grab her “honey do list” from the fridge, call a handyman service and put a check mark next to everything on her list!
She will appreciate the thoughtfulness and be grateful for the TIME saved.
Have fun crafting plans that are suitable for the lifestyle and relationship for you and your own Mother. We are confident even the simplest gift of your TIME will be appreciated and loved, creating new habits and traditions that will fill the memory bank!
Our office is full of strong nurturing Mothers and devoted daughters, all grateful to the women in our lives.
BRAVO to Patty, Patty, Debbie, Lisa, LaDonna, Jennifer and Tina – The Moms of LL&A, We LOVE You!!
~ No language can express the power, beauty and heroism of a mother’s love.
