A Perfect Mother’s Day Gift: Mom’s Space

mothe'sr day perfect giftAs a mom, you wear many hats. Housekeeper, cook, referee, activity and errand chauffeur and much more. Busy taking care of loved ones, your days are filled from morning to night. Unlike the Energizer Bunny, you do need to recharge your batteries.

What better way than creating your own private space? It can be a corner of a room in the house-put up a dividing screen to separate the space from the rest of the room- add a comfortable chair or sofa, candles, soft music, a stack of books or hobby items.

My favorite is a backyard serenity garden. Make it completely your zone. No kids or pets allowed. Fence or block off part of the yard–could be on the side of the house. Create a mini water fountain–the soothing sounds of water running over rocks creates a sense of tranquility. Plant your favorite flowers, add a chair, an umbrella for shade, a glass of lemonade or sweet tea and relax.

Happy Mother’s Day.
