As I sat down to write about celebrating Mother’s Day, I wanted to approach it from a lighthearted perspective. You know, maybe recounting a story or two about going RVing with my family on Mother’s Day. Maybe a funny story about how my husband and kids virtually destroyed our pre-owned 5th wheel’s galley all in attempt to make me one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had. Which they did, might I add. I thought maybe I’d spin a yarn about being surrounded about the majesty and beauty of the great outdoors as I watched the kids bounce and frolic in the woods collecting pine cones, sticks and creepy crawlies. Then I thought, maybe I’d write about spending my first Mother’s Day with my grandchildren on the road and how, even though things were different, they were actually quite similar to when my kids were their age.
…and then it hit me. The real reason for celebrating Mother’s Day is to not just to remember, but celebrate all of the wonderful things our mother’s did and continue to do for us. What would the world be without our mother’s love and guidance? What would the world be without her there to take you to your first Little League game, or make that skinned knee feel better, or teach you how to spell. I can literally sit here for hours on end and not run out of stories, or things to say about the the strongest woman I’ve ever known. I can only hope that my children see the same things in me.
There is no doubt that we’ve all taken advantage of knowing that we’d always have someone there for us who is always at their best, even when we are at our worst. Have you thought to yourself, “What would the world be like with out Moms”? Watch the video.
So, what do you plan on doing with Mom this Mother’s Day? Let me recommend that you continue making memories with a nice trip to one of our amazing State Parks. Don’t just get Mom out of the house, get her out of the city. Take her some place where she can bask in the silence of her surroundings. Pack up that RV and take her to a place where she can rest, relax and enjoy her family. You have to give of yourself just one day a year, while she gives all 365 days. Take her RVing.
Don’t have an RV yet? What a great opportunity to give her the gift of travel. You can find great consignment RVs here at PPL Motorhomes which would make a perfect first “home away from home”. Owning a new, or used RV will open up doors for Mom that she never even knew existed.
