5 Ways to Celebrate Mother's Day

The best part about May is that we get to acknowledge the wonderful women in our lives; our mothers and other significant women who we otherwise might take for granted. And, the best way to celebrate these amazing women is to spend the day with them! If you haven't made plans yet, don't worry, it's not too late.

 

Here are 5 ways you can celebrate Mother's Day this year.

 

 

1. Buy your mom flowers

You can't go wrong with flowers! You can buy a lovely bouquet of spring flowers or even a potted plant for your mom. Make sure to write a heartfelt card to make it even more special! If flowers aren't her thing, you can buy her seeds and get started on planting a vegetable garden.

 

2. Bake or cook your mom's favourite dish

Encourage your mom to take a break from cooking on Mother's Day by cooking her favourite dish. If you aren't much of a cook that is okay! Why not support a local restaurant or business? You can put in the order for your mom and ask them to deliver the dish directly to your mom. It's the perfect day to spoil your mom!

 

3. Make a homemade gift

Remember that quilt or sewing project that you never quite finished? Or that scrapbook that needs some final stickers? This is the perfect time to finish it up for your mom! Get your kids or grandkids involved by having them make homemade drawings or cards.

 

4. Plan a fun creative surprise

Get your whole family involved and plan a surprise for your mom. If you’re a musical family, surprise her with live music and song. If you’re poetic and theatrical, write her a heartfelt poem and/or perform a play just for her. If you're crafty, make some fun posters or banners to brighten up your mom's day. I am sure your mom will appreciate your effort and love!

 

5. Tea time on a video call

If your mom is tech-savvy and lives out of town, schedule a video call to have a special tea time chat. Take this time to reconnect with your mom by reminiscing on childhood memories and on happy lighthearted memories. Most importantly don't forget to tell her how much you love her and appreciate her! Words of kindness and appreciation can go a long way!

 

Mothers are incredible and deserve to be celebrated all year round, but especially in May, at Mother’s Day. Comment below and share with us how you're going to celebrate your mom. We hope you have a lovely Mother's Day!

 

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the special mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers out there!

Happy International Women's Day!

International Women’s Day and the week leading up to it is an opportunity to acknowledge the advancement of women and all of the successes achieved by women.  International Women’s Day (IWD) was first observed in 1911 in both Europe and America and has since grown to become a day of recognition and celebration in both developed and developing countries across the world.  In some countries, IWD is a national holiday!

 

 

International Women’s Day started as a political event and was primarily focused on women’s economic, political and social achievements.  Acknowledging advancements in each of these areas remains important and a focus of IWD, but it has expanded to also be a way to acknowledge all women as a form of respect and appreciation for all that women do—both publicly and privately.

 

Here at Warm Embrace, we are honoured to have so many fabulous women on our team! Our wonderful employees make a difference in their client’s lives every single day! We have fantastic women on our team who make a difference in a quiet way, selflessly meeting the needs of others. We want to acknowledge and publicly appreciate the wonderful women on our team for the meaningful service they diligently provide.


We are also inspired to serve elderly female clients, many of whom are well aware that women have made incredible progress; our elderly clients lived through an era that is quite different from today!  We are always amazed at the stories of bravery and triumph when our clients share details of how they fought for personal progress.  We certainly owe a debt of gratitude for the many women—and men—who came before us and ensured that today’s women would have greater opportunities by changing the course of history.  It is an honour to serve such inspiring people! 


In recognition of International Women’s Day, we want to say a special thank you to all of the extraordinary women who paved the way for this generation of young women to experience greater equality and to continue working toward even greater progress.
