Every year my family asks me, “What would you like for Mother’s Day?” I often say something like, “I don’t know. Let’s just go out for dinner.” But, is that what I truly want? Dinner? At a crowded, noisy restaurant? Humm… Not this year. What DO I WANT? Good Question.
I went online to search for a gift idea that was truly meaningful and, instead, uncovered articles that highlighted gifts that just didn’t “hit home.” Time to herself, a clean house, a handwritten note? COME ON! Is that the best you can do? I mean, I have time to myself as I fight traffic to and from work. A clean house? This held much more importance to me when my children where younger, but now that I don’t have a living room full of toys, I can pretty much say the house usually looks ok even if the neighbors drop by. A handwritten note? Please… Not even going to spend time on that idea.
I didn’t think figuring out what I truly wanted would be so difficult. I mean, I should want something? Right?
Then it hit me! I would like to spend time with my children, with no cell phones or distractions. I’d like to have a nice conversation with them or a nice walk. I don’t need a fancy dinner, flowers or even a card. Just time with my two children, hearing them laugh and expressing ideas and dreams.
If you’re looking to spend quality time with your children this Mother’s day, hereare a few local places to take a nice walk and enjoy each other’s company:
- The Clark County Wetlands – 7050 Wetlands Park Ln, Las Vegas, NV 89122
- The Clark County Museum – 1830 S Boulder Hwy, Henderson, NV 89002
- Floyd Lamb Park – 9200 Tule Springs Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89131
- Red Rock Canyon – 1000 Scenic Loop Dr.
I have been to each of these places and enjoyed myself immensely. I think you will, too.
