Family is everything, and as Mother’s Day approaches, we’re thinking about all of the amazing moms in our lives. First of all, there’s Mom VG, who we talked about in last year’s blog post (read it here). Mom VG is an incredible mother and grandma (“Nanny” to the VG grandkids), not to mention a great wife, friend, businesswoman and community member. We think she’s a superstar and could find a reason to celebrate her every day!
There’s also the women us VG brothers are lucky enough to share our lives with: our wives, who are not only mothers to our children but also phenomenal individuals. We are so grateful for Heidi (Cory), Nicole (Chad), Raelynn (Kyle) and Morgan (Kevin). Thank you for being the heart and soul of our homes, amazing mothers and partners, and all-around good people. Each one of you is loved and appreciated!
All of this may seem very sentimental, but it’s more than true. Where would any of us be without amazing women in our lives? This weekend, take a moment and think of the moms, aunts and grandmothers who raised you, as well as the women you are raising your own children with now. It’s great to give them a Mother’s Day gift, but more importantly, we encourage everyone to take a moment and recognize all of the hard work, love, dedication and sleepless nights they’ve given to their family. Gratitude is an amazing gift, so hand it out generously!
When it comes down to it, most moms don’t want anything fancy for Mother’s Day. Some may want a little peace and quiet while others may enjoy some quality time with family. Try starting the day by making the mom in your life a simple homemade breakfast: coffee or tea, eggs however she likes them, toast and VG Meats bacon. We’ve got everything you need in our Simcoe and Stoney Creek locations! It’s a simple way to let her relax (and know that you care). Just remember to do the dishes and clean up after you’re done!
Motherhood can be a thankless job - particularly when you’ve got little ones at home - but ask any mom and she’ll tell you it’s worth it. Why? Because moms are incredible, and make every house a home.
For all that you do for your family and the world around you - thanks, moms. Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at VG Meats!
