This year is a very different year for our family.
First, our Air Force daughter was to deploy, and that was cancelled, thank goodness! Secondly, my father was to have surgery Friday before Mother’s day, so we cancelled our plans to get together. We thought, lets celebrate Mother’s- Father’s day and combine them together.
Today, my dad’s surgery was rescheduled for next week.
So we have decided to keep the plans for celebrating Mother’s and combining it with Father’s day!
I am learning in life to be flexible, you can celebrate in way you want when it come to holidays.
In the past my family would all get together ( 25 of us) and the guys would make us breakfast for us Mothers. The kids created a menu and they would wait on us like a restaurant. The husband’s did the cooking and clean up. It was fun. But this year combining the Mothers- Father’s day we informed the kids, its all up to you! They are not so sure of this was such a good idea.
My husband Alan, asked what I wanted to do on Mother’s day. My kids are unable to come over. I was not sure, I love bike riding along the beach, swimming in the pool, and going to the movies. I have been thinking maybe this is the weekend we could try out kayaking in the back bay. We have always talked about it trying this out.
No matter what I do I appreciate that I can celebrate having my mom and dad. How you end up celebrating Mother’s Day enjoy the moment!
You can have everyone get involved. You keep the cost done and everyone enjoys being a part of the plans. Or if you are alone just be thankful for what you have today and the memories of the past.
