Last year Mother's Day saw many families unable to get together and do the usual celebration with Mom due to the Pandemic and quarantine. This year we are getting better and getting vaccines and restrictions are lifting....so this will be a day with Mom.

Here are some of YOUR suggestions:

Judi in Forked River: Looking forward to spending a nice day with my daughter and son (in-law) They are cooking .... Family above all .... Best gift ever 

Carly in Toms River: Sleep

Ariana: An hour of peace and quiet

Lorie in Toms River: Depends on the weather. I love being outdoors

Stephanie in Toms River: A hour to breathe. To get me back. I am sure a lot of us mothers lost our self in this. We turned into everything not only mom

Marilyn: To sit at the beach and listen to the seagulls!!!

Cheryl in Toms River: A nice weekend with family

 

Thanks to everyone for your input and we wish all the MOMS a very Happy Mother's Day from all of us at 92.7 WOBM
