This year, we’re rounding up some of our favorite bloggers to get their thoughts on faith and family. We asked them:
What Is Your Favorite Mother’s Day Tradition?
Jessica of Grace for Moms
My favorite Mother’s Day tradition is simply being together. My mom passed away last fall so this will be my first Mother’s Day without her. I imagine we’ll start some new traditions in her honor. I want to celebrate the amazing woman she was and all that she instilled in me.
Stef of Educating Laytons
The boys get so excited to give me their hand-made cards. They usually always wake me up because they can’t wait a moment more. Then they help dad cook me breakfast. It’s sweet. After church we end up out for lunch and spend the day doing something fun together outside.
Anne Marie of future.flying.saucers
My husband’s immediate family lives in the same town. We all gather at Grandma’s house after church for lunch and family fellowship!
Laura of Raising Soldiers 4 Christ
Well we really do not have one. We are a military family and so Mother’s Day is always different for us depending on where Dad is and where we are. However, growing up I always got my mother a corsage to wear and my Dad got me one. I really loved that tradition.
Leah of As We Walk Along the Road
On Mother’s Day we all do some kind of day trip as a family- the zoo, the outlet mall- we go somewhere with just our immediate family.
Cara of Cheap Ways To…
Last year we brought take-out home from a favorite restaurant and had a picnic in our front yard. It was pretty much the perfect Mother’s Day lunch, and a practice I hope we continue.
Kimberly of Living in the Sweet Spot
My husband and I are so blessed to have our family that live close. On Mother’s Day we take our parents out to dinner together. We present them each with their own unique photo album t hat is filled with pictures we have taken with them over the past year. They know it’s coming, but they always act surprised. It is a priceless gifts we love to create and give.
Wendy of Hip Homeschool Moms
My favorite Mother’s Day tradition is allowing the mom to be “queen for the day.” I don’t have to do any housework or cooking. The children and my husband take over the cooking and the chores for the day. I can read, relax and take a bath, do some quilting or scrapbooking, or whatever else I want to do!
Danika of Thinking Kids
When our children were young, my husband would interview our children and write little quotes to a Mother’s Day card. As they’ve gotten older, they’ve written their own letters to me on cardstock and added them to pages in a special book they’ve selected for Mother’s Day. Their letters and thoughts have been a blessing to be able to look back on.
Heather of Learning As We Grow…Growing As We Learn
I get to pick where we go for lunch, and my hubby takes care of any kid duties that need done. This includes but is not limited to: getting meals for the kiddos, putting them down for their naps and bed, changing diapers, etc.
Tamika of No Time For Tea Parties
I enjoy the homemade gifts the kids make.
Chad of chadeddy.com
My four boys and I pick out hanging baskets for their mom each year, and she loves it!
Lisa of Chaos Appreciation
Our lives have changed so much over the past couple of years, that it has been hard to maintain any particular tradition. I can always count on my kids to rush to color me a picture or fight over who gets to make me coffee.
Carlie of Managing Your Blessings
When I was growing up, we always served my mom breakfast in bed. And now my beautiful family does the same for me. I love it!
