Happy Mother’s Day

From Daughter to Mother

My Mother... Poetry Contest Winner!

By: Grace Brulotte

You signify strength And compassion at length With a heart made of gold And words that are bold You’ll stand up for what’s right To be a beacon of light And after you’ve prayed You’ll offer your aid The things that you say The people do weigh They come to great use And tie up what is loose Your life may not be the best But you proved the test As you care for the needs And your mercy exceeds And so you wait For that very special date Although you will find A larger blessing in kind

Grace Brulotte is our My Mother... Poetry Contest winner!

And so I must say In my own special way For all that you do I am grateful for you

For her wonderful heartfelt poem, Grace has won a $100 gift certificate to Odyssey. Nice work, Grace!

Ten gift ideas for ten styles of mother

f you’d like to branch out and be a bit more creative with your Mother’s Day gift this year, here are gift ideas for ten different types of mother.

1. The food-loving mom: a gift basket that showcases local artisanal food products, such as cheeses, breads, and wines. It will be like a mini-adventure into the culinary world, and it will taste great too! 2. The philanthropic mom: a gift made in her name to a charitable cause close to her heart. 3. The Zen mom: a soothing object such as a coffee table fountain, meditation pillow, or a bonsai. 4. The travelling mom: a book all about her dream destination. 5. The busy mom: a homemade gift certificate offering to do a chore of her choice, such as taking her car to the garage for her, vacuuming her entire house, or de-junking the garage. 6. The sporty mom: a yearly membership at a sports club or a pass for the hiking trails in a federal or provincial park in her area. 7. The fashionista mom: a trendy accessory that she wouldn’t dare to buy on her own, such as a snazzy necklace, funky belt, or Jackie-O sunglasses. 8. The mom who loves to pamper herself: a basket of beauty products, such as a home spa kit, makeup, or a skin care system. 9. The green mom: a domestic composter to help her reduce the amount of garbage she sends to the dump. Or, you could offer to turn over her compost pile for her. 10. The cocooning mom: a cozy dressing gown or a good book to read in the late spring sun.

The most beautiful gift is your presence

I

t’s a no-brainer that to show your mom how much you love her you could shower her with gifts: flowers, chocolates, a gift certificate for a spa, or a new book she’s been waiting to read. But if you really want to touch her heart, don’t forget to give a little of the most precious gift of all: your time. All the finest gifts in the world could never replace your presence. You could invite her to have brunch at her favourite restaurant or spend some time with her preparing some home cooked meals to freeze. You could take her for a walk in the park where you used to go together when you were young, which is sure to evoke many happy memories for both of you. Leaf through old photo albums together or ask her to tell you about the happiest times of her life. Laughter and even a few tears will likely accompany the stories. Your mother may need help with work around her home. Take advantage of her special day to do some helpful chores. You could clean the outsides of windows or help her do a bit of spring cleaning. No matter what your plans are for this May 11, be sure to spend some quality time with the person who raised you. In fact, why not make a resolution to set aside an entire day for your mom every year on Mother’s Day. She deserves it!

Happy Mother’s Day

You find yourself cutting your husband’s sandwiches into unusual shapes. You fast-foward through the scene where the hunter shoots Bambi’s mother. You obsess about your child clinging to you when it’s time to go to school, then you obsess about her running in without looking back. You can’t bear to give away baby clothes — it’s so final!

You count the number of sprinkles on each kid’s cupcake to make sure they are equal. You hide in the bathroom to be alone. Your child throws up and you catch it. Someone else’s kid throws up at a party and you keep eating. You master the art of placing food on a plate without anything touching. Your child insists that you read “Once upon a Potty” out loud in the doctor’s waiting room and you do it. You hire a babysitter, because you haven’t been out with your husband in ages, then you spend half the night talking about the kids and checking in with the sitter.

You hear your mother’s voice coming out of your mouth when you say, “Not in your good clothes.” You stop criticizing the way your mother raised you. You read that the average five-year-old asks 437 questions a day and feel proud that your kid is “above average”. You have time to shave only one leg at a time. You don’t mind sharing a public swimming pool with dozens of pee-filled, swimmy-diapered toddlers. Your purse contains endless clean and not-so-clean facial tissues. When you don’t mind putting on Winnie the Pooh, Snow White, or Spiderman bandages.

You hope ketchup is a vegetable, because it’s the only one your child eats.
