Bridging the distance
on Mother's Day
the many ways to reconnect
with Mom even
if you live far apart.
Many modern families are spread out
across the country if not the globe. Some
people move away from family to further
their careers, while others are called upon to
care for others. Children may separate from
their parents to witness new travel experiences.
Military service may call individuals
away from home as well.
Distance can make it challenging to
spend time together for major holidays and
other special occasions - like Mother's Day.
But Mother's Day can still be special even if
Mom lives hundreds or thousands of miles
Technology helps break down some of
the barriers created by distance. While phone
calls were once the way to keep in touch,
many people now utilize various forms of
digital communication. Someone who lives
across different time zones can talk through
texting or the various social media avenues
available on computers, phones and tablets.
Video apps like Skype and FaceTime enable
you to video chat with others in real time.
Come Mother's Day, connect with mom via
such apps so you can watch her open up her
Reconnect with home
If Mom is the one who ventured from
home, help her to reconnect with her hometown
or another place she feels attached to.
Ship her some favorite regional foods that
can only be bought in town. Make a photo or
video montage of places of interest in town.
These little touches of home can mean the
world to her.
Create a special day
Even if you do not live near your mother,
you can still plan a fun day for her in her
town. Make reservations for a spa, hair salon
or other sources of pampering and surprise
her with all the details.
Treat her to the ultimate surprise
If possible, make a surprise visit this
Mother's Day. Coordinate the plan with
your father or another relative and then enjoy
seeing her eyes light up when you arrive.
With a little creativity, even families
separated by geography can share the magic
of Mother's Day together.
