Mother’s Day: What being a Mom really means + Gift ideas
Being a mom is the hardest job I’ve ever done and there’s no job I’ve ever loved more.
A mom is more than giving birth to a child. It’s caring for a little life that is completely dependent on you. It’s sleepless nights, bandaging scraped knees, teaching them to walk, wiping away tears and sometimes not knowing how to fix their broken hearts, and it’s loving them unconditionally and worrying every minute about them for the rest of your life. Being a mom means making mistakes, so many mistakes. It’s growing a heart on the outside of your body.
Being a mother means finally realizing why the mama bear’s porridge went cold.
Motherhood isn’t just having a baby. It’s a choice you make every day to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is and to forgive yourself over and over and over again for doing everything wrong.
Someone once told me that the days are long but the years are short…and it’s so true – now that my girls are 6, 8, and 10, I can’t believe how fast the years have gone bye.
I always joke that the only spa day I get is when the steam from the dishwasher hits my face. At Anna’s we have so many items in the store for Mom for Mother’s Day. Wonderful bath bombs, lotions, and candles for a mom who just needs some “me time”.
Our kitchen home decor this season is absolutely stunning for the mom who loves to cook.
Or a mom who is a Tea drinker and just needs five minutes with a hot cup of tea. Alone! We have everything she needs to relax and unwind.
Mother’s Day is going to look different for us this year with physical distancing. We have a great online order and pick up service to help you celebrate and honour those special moms in your life. Make her home look fabulous with some colourful flowers or a planter and it will remind her of how much she is loved and appreciated.
Happy Mother’s Day to the selfless women who inspire and motivate us and remind us to be a better person every single day!! Today is your day! You are seen. We appreciate everything you’ve done for us and love you more than you know❤️
Thank you to all the Moms & Grandmothers out there. Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
