Mother’s Day is around the corner and I’ve been wracking my brains trying to think of how to honour my mother. But it occurs to me why do we honour our mothers (and our fathers for that matter) this one day? Every day should be a special day with our moms and dads because no one knows when Alzheimer’s disease might hit. Though we’ve come a long way in understanding this disease, we still haven’t discovered the causes or found a cure. That’s why research is so vital.
So, here’s my advice. Take time each day to honour your mother (and father), or someone special in your life. Let them know how much they mean to you. Memories are what define our lives so the moments you share with loved ones are precious.
And here’s some more advice. If you’re looking for something special and meaningful to give your mom this Mother’s Day, make a donation to the Alzheimer Society of Ontario. By purchasing an e-card in their honour you help us bring us closer to finding a cure for Alzheimer’s.
