|Perfect Mother's Day Gift|
By and large, mothers are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacation-less class. It's true. Children and/or spouses are always around. Everyone always needs something. There's usually way too much to do and most of it had to be done yesterday. There's often tension between work outside and work inside the home. And when mothers do try to take some time for themselves, they usually feel guilty.
So, one of the best presents this Mother's Day may be making mum a nice breakfast -and then (after you clean up, of course) leaving! Let mom do what she likes. Make it clear that she can't do anything around the house or work-related, only things for herself. Maybe she'd like to go out for a hike or a walk. Maybe she'd like to take a long, quiet bath. Maybe she'd just like to watch a taped program or rent a movie that she enjoys. And when the family does return home, no long faces or guilt trips.
Ahhh. My perfect Mother's Day.
