A Word


There is no one on this earth like a mother, and for that reason, they should be cherished. Not just in May, but every single day of the year.


Here is a Mother’s Day activity that can be a new way of connecting with your mother or mother figure on this special day.

Mother’s Day Activity

Activity: 3 Statements of Gratitude

Duration: 5-15 minutes

Directions: Set aside some time to ask your mother, or mother figure, “In Motherhood, what are three things you are grateful for?” In addition, if you are a mother, or a mother figure, also feel free to share your own statements of gratitude as well.

To all the new mothers, the wise mothers, mothers who share no biological relation, and mothers who are no longer here with us. Happy Mother’s Day!
