Editorial – Mom is a Hero

Hey mamas – we want to let you know you are doing an amazing job during a trying time! You may have during recent times become a homeschool teacher, hand-washing police officer, efficient grocery shopper, creative idea-thinker, tech-savvy work-from-homer, inventive meal-prepper, nurse, family supporter, social worker, and financial planner. And this gives us even more reason to celebrate you this Mother’s Day.

Things may have to change a bit. We may not be able to take you out for brunch at your favourite restaurant, or have flowers delivered, or buy your that lotion or shoes you’ve been eyeing. But we sure can gather some crayons and yarn and glue and stickers to make mom a gorgeous, heart-felt card. Or we can FaceTime or Zoom with her to send our love. Or we can surprise her with some orange juice or coffee in bed. And we can do the thing that moms truly love most in this world – we can spend time together.

See, it’s tough times like this that can often make us step back and consider what’s most important in life. We have been touched by stories of families who finally have the time to bake together, play board games, read books, play Lego, create crafts and talk. We hear from fellow humans Frank, Janet and Colin (we’re all just humans trying to fight this together and support one another) about how they feel and how they and their families are dealing with the pandemic. You can read their heart-warming stories on pages 12, 14 and 23.

Why don’t you DIY some skin care treats for Mom this year? You’ll find recipes in Revitalize You! on page 8. Whatever you’re doing to celebrate the special woman in your life this Mother’s Day, make it grand. Now is a time, more than ever, to pour out your heart to those you love, to tell them why they are so special to you, and to do it in the most creative of ways. From all of us here at The Mom & Caregiver, we send our love to all the caregivers – those in our homes and those in our communities who are giving so very much. Thank you!
