Entry Description
Celebrating this Mother’s Day

There are people in this life that make a significant impact on us and help shape the kind of people we have become. For me, that person was my mother. She was the symbol of strength and kindness.  It is so hard to believe it has been five years, but I still think of her every day. Her legacy and influence lives on in my heart and the hearts of every life she touched.  
 
Mothers make incredible sacrifices for their families. Despite their profession, all mothers are part-time doctors, always on call and can work double, sometimes triple-shifts. Anytime dad or I would get sick or hurt, mom was always there to comfort us. In fact, through every one of life’s challenges, my mom would be there with wisdom and helpful advice to guide us through every difficult situation. I often find myself thinking and saying things mom would do.
 
Mothers bring families together and are essential to shaping the lives of their children. I am truly honored to have had someone so special in my life, and I want to say thank you to every mother reading this for all that you do.
 
We can show our appreciation to mothers through a variety of ways. For us, Mother's day was the day we planted flowers together.  She loved flowers of all kinds but it was those red geraniums that were always her favorite. Treating mom to a special meal was always a treat for her too. We have so many wonderful places to eat in our community that taking your mom out is not the challenging task but figuring out which place to go is the tough decision.   
 
An opportunity that the Indiana Transportation Museum is providing includes a leisurely train ride from Fishers to the historic Square in Noblesville. The train would leave at 12:45 p.m. and upon arrival in Noblesville at 1:10 p.m., lunch would be made available. Moms would also receive a rose on the return trip. For more information on this event, please visit www.visithamiltoncounty.com.
 
Although we set aside just one day to honor our mothers, remember that they spend the entire year sacrificing and giving to others. I encourage you to find ways to help her relax this Mother’s Day –she certainly has earned it.
 
Around this time every year is the start of National Women’s Health Week, established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health. Mother’s Day is a fitting way to promote the health of women since they do so much on a daily basis. By bringing together community, business as well as government and health organizations, Women’s Health Week aims to provide several small steps that can be taken by women in order to improve their mental and physical health while lowering their risk of certain diseases.
 
Some of these steps include staying active and maintaining a balanced, nutritious diet. Avoid unhealthy behavior, which can increase a woman’s risk of certain diseases, and try to manage stress while getting adequate amounts of rest. Regular or preventative health care visits are important as well. These are just a few of the good practices that women can take to stay healthy and reduce the risk of getting sick. For more information about Women’s Health Week, visit www.womenshealth.gov.
 
I encourage you to cherish every minute you have with your mothers and appreciate all they have done for you; not just on Mother’s Day but throughout the year as well. Through the unconditional love they show, Moms are a gift from above and serve as amazing examples of how we should all live our lives. 
 
Again, to every mother reading this, I hope you have an incredible Mother’s Day and know that you are valued, loved and appreciated.
