Even though mums give us so much help and love every day, there’s only one Mother’s Day, and this year it is on Sunday, 12th May. Show your appreciation and love and make it a memorable day this year.
Here are some ideas to help you make Mother’s Day 2019 as special for your mum, as special as she is to you.
Children love to make homemade gifts. There are plenty of very handy DIY ideas online to give mum a very special gift that she will be able to use for a long time to come. Many ideas use supplies you already have hanging around the house, including yarn, paper, a mason jar, even an old shirt!
If you need a quote for the home made Mother’s Day card, here are some ideas:
• For when a child is born the mother also is born again. – Gilbert Parker
• All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother. – Abraham Lincoln
• Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs… since the payment is pure love. – Mildred B. Vermont
