Mother’s Day in Quarantine

Picture by Melinda Modisette

Many families were more connected than usual on Mother’s Day this year, with college students at home, nobody going to work or school, and lots of time to enjoy each other’s company and relax. For some mothers, however, it was hard to spend time with their families; grandmothers in retirement homes were unable to visit their children while mothers who were nurses and doctors were busy working in hospitals. Luckily, several organizations made sure that these mothers still had something special in their day.

Local flower shops around the nation, Uber drivers, and Lowe’s department store worked together in delivering flower baskets to thousands of mothers. They surprised nurses, doctors, and seniors in the most severely hit states in the US. For Mother’s Day brunch, several San Diego restaurants offered special take out meals, including one distillery which made tea party sets to-go. Thank you to all the moms out there!
