Mother’s day is almost upon us again, and this time, the Department of Health celebrates along with their Safe Motherhood Week. It is all about giving back to our mothers who raised us and gave us medicine for coughs and colds when we were sick.
Mother’s Day and Safe Motherhood Week is not about buying expensive gifts or impressing your mothers with over-the-top displays of affection. It is about family, togetherness, and ensuring good health with medical supplies in the Philippines.
Show your appreciation for your mother and do something different this year by giving back to your mother on DOH’s Safe Motherhood Week. Here are a few ideas you can do that the whole family can enjoy and will definitely bring a smile to your mother’s face.
One of the best things about Mother’s Day and Safe Motherhood Week is that it’s conveniently celebrated in the summer when the weather is great. Mother’s Day also always falls on a Sunday, which combined with a gorgeous weather, makes it a perfect time to go on an outing.
You can take your time and enjoy your day with your mother and your family without having to worry about rushing home because of the traffic. You can go on an outing at the park or go on a nice picnic and do your favorite family activities together.
Families can walk around, admire their surroundings, and enjoy the season for a great family outing.
Summer is also the best time to have a nice, home-cooked meal out on the patio or have a barbeque. Cook your mother’s favorite dish and make her and your family an unforgettable dinner.
Include a lot of fresh summer vegetables from your local farmer’s market. Make sure you take your medicine for coughs and colds before you spend a lot of time outside so you don’t get sick.
You can end the night by making the favorite dessert of your mom. Pamper her on her special night and let her relax for once while the rest of the family caters to her desires.
Your mother probably handles most of the cleaning and other duties in her house. To celebrate Mother’s Day and Safe Motherhood Week, give her a break by having the rest of the family and yourself clean up the house. Get the kids to pitch in and help make the house spic and span.
You can do this while your mother is out enjoying her day, relaxing and pampering herself, or just taking some quiet time. You can use this time to get some household repairs or improvement projects that you may have been putting off. If you don’t have any, surprise your mother with an inexpensive project like painting a room or replenishing your medical supplies in the Philippines.
Giving back to your mother this Safe Motherhood Week and Mother’s Day does not have to cost you a lot of money. In fact, it is the little things that she will probably appreciate more and remember for a long time.
Save your money and just spend your time with your family and especially your mother this Safe Motherhood Week.
