No matter what your relationship with your mother, we all have one. We all owe our lives to our mothers – none of us would be here without them. So, each year a day is set aside to honor mothers and this year that day is Sunday. There are so many ways we can show our appreciation and I think, if at all possible, the most important is to spend time with your mother. The gift of your presence would mean more to her than flowers, cards, a meal, candy – any of the traditional kinds of gifts. That said, however, you might want to think about showing up with some yummy goodies from one of our local bakeries. In Southport, NC, you will find sweet treats at Burney’s Bakery and The Confectionary. In Shallotte, NC, you can feed her sweet tooth at Sugar Confections Bakery. In Ocean Isle Beach, NC, check out Seaside Bakery. In Calabash, NC, the place for sweets is Maude’s Country Delights.
On Saturday, you can Ride the Tide in the Davis Canal in Oak Island, NC. If you have a mom who likes kayaking you can take her as well. The more the merrier. What a beautiful and fun way to spend the day outdoors and take advantage of the natural blessings of North Carolina.
If Kayaking is not your thing, or your mom’s, if music is your preference, that is on offer as well. The Brunswick Concert Band Spring Concert will take place on Saturday at 3 PM at the Brunswick Community College Odell Williamson Auditorium in Bolivia, NC, with some foot tapping and beautiful music.
