“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for MetLife. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”
Whenever I think of mother’s day, I think about honoring my mother. Now that I am a mother myself, I think about a break. *chuckle*
Some mothers might use their special day to spend time with the family, while others like to be pampered, or simply get away from it all. I personally think it should be a day set aside to honor the mother, regardless of how she wants to be “honored”. Because we work SO hard!
Being a mother is a job where we have to keep giving of ourselves, and expect really, nothing in return. Yet the rewards DO come, constantly, don’t they? The beautiful smile from your baby, the “I love you” from your child, and hugs. Oh how I love the hugs. No job is more work, and yet no job is more rewarding than being a mother.
I think I realized how much more my own mother put into raising me when I had children of my own. Nothing beats experience.
This mother’s day, I’ll simply be visiting with family for an evening of dessert. I do not know what the day will hold, except that I am going to participate in Metlife’s #SocialBlackout.
MetLife has created the #SocialBlackout movement, which challenges everyone to log off of social media on Mother’s Day (May 12th) and give Mom the time and attention she deserves!
My children are not on social media yet, nor is my husband (amazing), so it will just be me (this will be a challenge). Sometimes it is good to step away from your phone, tablet, or computer and disconnect to reconnect with your family.
Up for the challenge? Family up to it? Why not take a day off social media, and have some fun OFF screen.
