Cute or Cashing In?
When I found this pop up Mother’s Day stall in my neighbourhood at first I thought it was cute. Something the kids had knocked up to celebrate Mother’s Day. On closer inspection, of course, the adults were behind it.
But whether it was created out of good intentions or just to make a quick buck I bought the flowers anyway.
A lot of our holidays and celebrations have been taken over by commercial interests, but it’s up to us to make them special for ourselves and our families.
I hope that you and your family have a happy Mother’s Day. Let’s all stop and take time to appreciate the lady who bought us into the world.
