Last year on Mother's Day, a group of some of my favorite moms met to go for a nature walk in a nearby state park with our families. We all got together at our local neighborhood elementary school. We had our hiking shoes, our sunscreen, our hats and water bottles. And a nearby playground. The kids went off to do the monkey bars, and play in that ideal way where there's no fights big enough to necessitate parent mediation. The parents found an inviting picnic table in a sunny spot, and some great conversation. Needless to say, the nature walk never happened, but hands down, this was one of the best Mother's Day celebrations ever. No gifts. No big expectations. Just the company and companionship of some of my best peeps.
Mother's Day is this Sunday. How will you celebrate? What was your best Mother's Day ever?
