"When you are looking at your mother, you are looking at the purest love you will ever know." —Charley Benetto
Mother's Day is a day to honor mothers and pregnant women. An American activist Ana Jarvis loved her mother very much. She never married nor had any children. She started this day to show her love after the death of her mother. The date of Mother's Day varies from country to country. But, the majority of them have chosen to celebrate it in May.
On this occasion, the children offer gifts, cakes, flowers, handbags, books, jewelry, cards, or objects that they have made at school or at home. This day is also celebrated by adults of all ages to honor their mothers.
Because of coronavirus, this year, mother's day is going to be different. Most of the people will find it challenging to celebrate mother's day because of the social distance. It has a severe impact on everyone's life.
Impact of Coronavirus on the lives of mothers
The coronavirus is affecting the lives of people right around the world in a way that has never been seen before. It doubled the burden of mothers ironically; they have to work from home and work for home as well. They have to cook, clean the house,and take care of the children.
"Being a mother is learning about strengths you didn't know you had." —Linda Wooten
Daycares and schools are canceled, and people are encouraged to stay at home. Working mothers have to teach the kids, play with them, and above all, they have to work for their offices while staying at home.
Mother's Day is a great occasion to pay attention to your mother and take care of her. Show your care, love, and affection and make this mother's day memorable for you and your mother as well. On Sunday, you can perform multiple activities to give your mother a rest on her special day.
Tips for Celebrating Mother's Day 2020
we believe every mother is unique and should be cherished and appreciated every day!
Although mothers do not need any special day to love, they still receive more honor this day. Coronavirus has marginalized our activities, but there are tons of ways of showing how much you think about your mother's happiness.
Don't worry, and be creative!
Breakfast in Bed
The first thing you can do is to make breakfast for your mother and surprise her in the morning. It is an easy way to keep the children excited and engaged while making something delicious for the mother.
Homemade Crafts and Arts
As kids cannot go outside, so making greeting cards with the help of other family members is an exciting idea. You can make noodle necklaces, hand or footprints, painted flowers, pots, or simple greeting cards.
Online Gifts and flowers
It does not matter if your gift is big or small; it should match the interests and preferences of the person to whom it is addressed. And in the current situation, the most reasonable solution is to choose a gift in the online store and send it with a courier. You can order flowers and gifts, or, if you want to arrange a special dinner or lunch for your mother, you can order online food and so it feels more special for mom.
If your mother likes to cook, then kitchen utensils can be an ideal gift for her. To do this, think about what dishes your mother prepares most often, and is there something that will help her in culinary experiments? Maybe this is a submersible or stationary blender, a multifunctional food processor, a set of sharp knives, a service for a beautiful serving of dishes, or something else? A lot of online stores have these items order a few days before and surprise your mom on her special day.
In this situation where people spend a lot of time at home, the book can be a great leisure option. Therefore, the phrase "book is the best gift" has become more relevant than ever. Start choosing the right book from the genre that suits your mom best: it can be either a novel or a fantasy, an autobiography or a detective story. If you don' know what kind of book Mom has on her bedside table, then you can ask about this between things in the conversation.
Spend Mother's Day together - video chat makes it possible
The best gift we can give our mom is our company. But you will have to find a substitute for how to celebrate mother's day from afar. If you can't physically be with her doesn't mean that you cannot be with her.
Public transport should be avoided during the coronavirus period if the beloved mother lives far. There are still numerous ways to show your love. Fortunately, the mothers are now fully digitized
For many mothers, it is still the most beautiful gift if you simply take time and tell what is happening in your life. Despite the distance, this can also be done face to face. A video chat for Mother's Day is a valuable gift, especially in times of Quarantine.
If mom cannot operate a digital device, a simple phone call will, of course, have a worth. The main thing is to take time for your mother and show her that you think about her.
Send your mother an online Greeting card
Your mother has given you a precious gift that is your life; the least you can do is to post her an online Mother's day greeting card. It will show how much you love and care for your mother even you are not with her.
