Mother’s Day is FAST approaching and no matter how organized you’ve been this year, the effects of the coronavirus pandemic might have thrown you off. It’s so important to be cautious when being in contact with family members who might be elderly and/or have underlying health issues so here’s a run down of how to celebrate Mother’s Day safely this year.
Obviously with previous years, visiting your mom and elderly female relatives to show them your love would not only be normal, it would be expected. Unfortunately at the moment Kansas City is advising not only social distancing, but also to limit contact with people over the age of 70 to protect them from the virus. This year organizing a FaceTime or Zoom call with your mom and/or grandma is the way to go.
With regards to flowers, find a local florist and have flowers delivered. Also, many of the local restaurants are offering Mother’s Day brunch/lunch/dinner items that you can have delivered to your loved one. Give those special ladies a day off from cooking and support a small business….it’s a Win, Win! Here’s a link to some local restaurants offering delivery or curbside pick up. https://www.curbsidekc.com/
Non Contact Gift Ideas
Why not try out your film making skills and make a special video just for your mom? Donating to a charity or food bank in her name might be an act of true kindness in her honor and at a time like this, those acts are vital.
Above all else what your mom wants for Mother’s Day is for you to look after yourselves and each other, and for us all to get through this as best we can.
Happy Early Mother’s Day from The Deich Team!
