There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one. – Jill Churchill
May is the month we celebrate mothers. Women who give selflessly to those around them. A mother is not always the one who gave birth to you; she may be your aunt, guardian, or friend. She may live next door, across the country, or be watching over you from beyond this world. We celebrate a mother’s unconditional love, her ability to be somewhere/someone safe when we are scared, and our cheerleader through life—cheers to all of the women out there wearing their hearts outside of their body.
Here in Santa Cruz County, we have a vast selection of locally owned businesses at the ready to give Mom, Mama, Mommy, Madre, whatever you call that Goddess in your life, the most thoughtful gift this Mother’s Day. Find the perfect thing to show her how much you appreciate all that she does every day.
