    How do I and my loved ones celebrate Mother’s Day? My mother, my sister and I visit my Grandma’s grave and we sit and talk for while. We then go out for a nice lunch and then to a movie. After that we go shopping and then out for a quiet dinner.

    This year as a Military wife my husband will be TDY. I will be with my two amazing boys and I am going to ask them what “they want to do”! It seems that once you get in the schedules of school, sports, homework the routine takes over. They are my most wonderful blessing and make me the mom I am, to me it’s all about celebrating them, as my best gift ever!

    There are alot of moms in my life, and this year should have been my first mothers day but this year we will be celebrating by bowling and lunch with my mother in law and sister in laws and then by making dinner for my mom and her two best friends who are like mothers to me. Both of my grandmothers passed away on the same day 4 years apart. In the morning we visit them and bring flowers to where they rest. I know this year will be tough on me but I will certainly be busy celebrating the mothers in my life!

    My mom is 98 and in a nursing home in another state. Unfortunately I can’t afford to be there with her but did send her a couple of bubble tops, which she loves, and a hand-made paper craft followed by a card. Hope my sister, who lives closer, will be there with her.

    A very simple day together, nothing planned, elaborate or expensive. My 9 & 12 yr old ask what I want, and I say it doesn’t cost a dime, just peace and quiet (i.e. playing nice and no “Mooomm” every 10 minutes). I know when I have an empty nest I will miss that chaos, but for now it’s the best gift ever.

  6. Casey

    My sisters and I would take our mom to San Francisco, and we’d have lunch at Boudin before walking around Pier 39. She lost her battle to cancer in October 2013, and I just gave birth to my first child in April this year, so now I celebrate with my older sister (she’s a mom, too) – I think our new tradition would be going to Starbucks.
    I send cards and flowers to my fiancé’s mom and stepmom since they don’t live near us.

    We have 5 children. For mothers day we always get together and have an outdoor cookout. Usually it is held at our home but the kids do most of the work. The grandkids love running around the yard and it’s so fun just relaxing and spending time together.

    This year the childless female members of the family are going to cook and entertain all the MOTHERS in the family. There will be approximately 20 people attending and each mother will receive gifts. There will be 3 generations attending and will be hosted by 2 of the granddaughters. We are so excited to enjoy family time together!

    I have all my family over for a mother’s day brunch at my house. every year.

  10. Pat

    Most of my family lives at a distance. My mother, who has Alzheimers, no longer knows who I am; I sent her a card and letter recalling memories, hoping some memory might bring some joy to her day. We mail cards, and send flowers, and Skype with one daughter and family. We will dine after church with the family of our other daughter, who’s a great cook, then play games with the grandkids. I enjoy being with family.

  11. Diana

    I always pick a area that needs new decor and do that area with something new. So we all end up and my moms and eat (my favorite).

  12. Lori D.

    I prefer a simple mother’s day celebration. Every year we cook pancakes and enjoy a leisurely breakfast, chatting around the dining room table, excited for the day’s plans. I’ve been blessed to be a mom for 25 years! My beautiful daughters have brought me so much joy and happiness. I’m very proud and honored to be their mother. I can’t imagine life without them. This mothers day, we’ll load our bicycles onto the back of our SUV, drive to the state park a few miles from our home, and spend the day biking and picnicking, then we’ll rent a rowboat and lazily float along the river. These things make incredible memories that no material objects could ever outshine. Happy Mother’s Day to all moms! Blessings~Lori.

  13. Sandy

    I am far away from my mom on Mother’s day, which makes it hard, but my kids & husband still manage to make it special for me. We spend the morning at church and afterwards they usually get me something beautiful to plant in the yard together.

  14. MaryBethT

    My husband, boys and I go out for a long ride and then eat dinner wherever we end up ~ I love adventure and surprise.

  15. Jessica Grigsby
    I celebrate Mother’s Day with a family dinner that my hubby prepare every Mother’s Day (sure it want change). My children usually make homemade cards, that I treasure and love and the reminder of the day/night is all mine.

  16. Lesley Maxey

    I am celebrating with my mom tomorrow and then with my husbands grandparents on Sunday for a cookout!

  17. Rose Santuci-Sofranko

    The most important way we celebrate is by going to Sunday Mass together.

  18. Katie

    My husband and two boys are taking me to breakfast tomorrow. I am going to a Mother’s Day tea with my mom, grandmother, mother-in-law and aunt. Then on Sunday we will split our time between my husband’s family and my family!

  19. cassandra

    We celebrate by going out for brunch. Last year we also did a little spa day! Thanks for the giveaway.

    When my children were quite young, our family encountered some really challenging financial times. I shielded my mom, who lived 1500 miles away, from the details—but she seemed to know anyway. That year, she sent my children a little cookbook and $20 for them to make one of the recipes for me for Mother’s Day. They chose a salad recipe. My children are now in their late teens, but they still make the same salad for me every year. I’m looking forward to eating it again on Sunday!

  21. Katee Long

    My brothers and I will make my mom a great healthy breakfast in bed for my mom! We then go to church and have a BBQ with the family afterwards. It’s always a lovely day I look forward to to honor my amazing mother.

  22. Jessica

    We celebrate by being together. Its hard how times change, people grow and get busier. Its nice to know my family has a day to go be with Mom (and Grandma!) and celebrate how much we love her! And of course some strawberry shortcake never hurts. 🙂

  23. Aimee Randall

    My family celebrates by going to church and then having brunch together. My son will make dessert (this year it will be coconut creme pie 🙂 and we will relax our afternoon away.

  24. april

    We celebrate by having a meal together. My sibling and I give our mom a group gift. My husband and sons get me a goofy card and a much-loved Starbucks giftcard.
