This weekend is Mother’s Day, a time to honor mothers, the first women in all our lives. From birth through childhood most of us are fortunate to be guided by the wisdom of these women. They remain a source of encouragement and advice. When thinking about how to reward them, consider a day off or breakfast in bed. How about a day with no clothes to wash or dishes to do? Maybe you could plan a trip to her favorite outlet or just let her have a lazy day at home.
Take a moment to stop and offer a tribute to mothers everywhere and recognize them for the vital job they do. How could you even begin to pay your mother back for her efforts?
Wouldn’t she appreciate a time where she didn’t have to worry about any of the obligations she has now? Preparing for that time in the future, you can help the women in your life by planning for a comfortable retirement for yourself and for them. Are you saving for a time when you and your parents and significant others want to enjoy the fruits of all of your labors and take extended vacations, visit local and distant attractions, focus on companionship or have no worries about work? Will you be ready to do exactly what you want to do when the time comes?
