How much do we love our mothers? We can show our affection and gratitude to them everyday, but Mother’s Day is a perfect day to spend with them, giving them whatever we can to make them happy and appreciated. A bouquet of flowers and a greeting card are wonderful gifts, but the gifts of health and wellness will surely touch their hearts and benefit their well-being.

December will always be a month of activities. For me it starts off with my son Turo’s birthday on the first day. Next day, my mom Nora celebrates hers. Last week, she celebrated her birthday with family and close friends at a small gathering with fine food and laughter.
