Someone Special

It’s that time of year again- this Sunday May 12th is Mother’s Day!Image

A time to thank not only biological Mother’s- but also for the women who have consistently supported us and given us strength; the women who have an unconditional love for us. The ones who have mentored us and encourage positive changes within ourselves.

Though one day is simply not enough to say “Thank You” in the capacity it would require, there are lots of things you can do to convey to that special person how much their presence has meant to you.

This is one of my personal favourites:

“A Twist on Flowers”: If you’re the crafty type, this one is for you! Create a bouquet of paper flowers, with each petal of each flower you make noting a compliment, a thank you or something you love about that person. For example, on one petal you might write “Thank you for always knowing when I need a hug”. Click here to find a tutorial on paper daisies- the compliments however, are up to you!

Hamilton also has a couple fun events happening this weekend that you and you Mom could enjoy together:

On Saturday May 11th, the Hamilton Farmer’s Market at 505 York Blvd will be hosting a free Mother’s Day concert. The Bel Canto Chamber Orchestra will be performing from 1:00pm-1:45pm!

On Sunday May 12th, the Royal Botanical Gardens will be holding a Mother’s Day Brunch. This event begins at 10AM and runs until 3PM. Click here for more information on tickets.

Happy Mother’s Day!
