Mother's Day Celebration at CatholicMom.com

In anticipation of Mother's Day this weekend, we have some great Mother's Day resources at CatholicMom.com. How will you be celebrating this weekend?

My childhood memories of Mother's Day set a very high bar for the day. As the oldest of five children, I always loved bringing my mom breakfast in bed on the big day. She would sit up, surrounded by all of us and eating a special meal prepared by Daddy and the kids. There would be a parade of gifts, sometimes extravagant but most times simple, kid-made stuff that she always seemed to cherish. We couldn't wait to spend the morning spoiling her.

To this day, the place I always most wish to be on Mother's Day is in my Mom's bed! Since she lives in Mississippi, sadly this won't happen this year. I'm blessed to have the world's best Mom, and happy to have an occasion to celebrate her.

Sadly it won't happen for me either. My Mom died of cancer 5 yrs ago, so all you who still have your Moms with you, tarish them on this Mother's Day. They may not be here next year. WorkingForMom.com
