Last year when I wrote a mother's day blog it was about my sister buying my mom the best mother's day gift as a child. When I went to reflect on mother's day this year I'm looking at it through the eyes of my friends who have recently had children. Mother's day used to be about recognizing my mother for all she's done throughout my life but now it's also about the respect I have for all mothers. For the love they have for their children before they even see them the first time. For the instinct at knowing exactly what cry means what. For the quick hands that grab an arm before they topple over. For the life long dedication they make to their children's lives. This year, whether you're saying thank you to your mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, step-mom, wife, or dear friends (Courtney, Melissa, Jill, Carrie and MeLissa), you can find plenty of ways to say the right thing at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort.
