Mother's Day is here!  So what do you have planned for your mother, grandmother, aunt, god-mother or that special woman who filled the shoes of a "mother" in your life?  In case you didn't know, it is a recognized fact that the busiest day for restaurants is Mother's Day! 

Since Mother's Day is supposed to be when we as women are "supposed to have the day off," we often put this task in the hands of the men (and children) in our lives on how we are going to celebrate this event.  It is traditional for many families to attend church and then go out to brunch.  But other options could include breakfast in bed, dinner at twilight, or anything in between.  The key in my opinion is to just ask her what she would really like.  Depending on the day to day responsibilities of her life, she may want to either keep it simple and relaxed, or if she rarely gets an opportunity to dress up and paint the town, she may desire for you to go all out. 

Remember, mom's day should not be cookie cutter.  Show her that you put some thought and effort into her day.  Make it an event that she will remember by doing the little things that put a smile on her face.  I'm sure she's not as complicated as you may think or try to make things to be.  Take a little time and just ask her what's important and special to her. 

In closing, I would also like to encourage everyone to do something for a mother who may have lost their child to violence, war, accidents or just life.  She may not have that child to reach out and say "Happy Mother's Day" to her, but you can!  So from all of us at PSP - "Happy Mother's Day" to all of the women that are and have ever been a "mom" to a child.

Give your all in all that you do. Then the PLUS won't just be more, it will be the difference!
