WITH THE PEOPLE (AND PETS) YOU LOVE Slow Down and Savor Moments

talk to someone who you can share memories of your mom with. For mothers who’ve lost children, I can only imagine your pain. Please know our hearts are with you. Mother’s Day at our house usually involves making breakfast for Susie and spending a nice day together. The kids help make her pancakes, and even if some of them don’t look quite like pancakes, Susie, being the good mom she is, still eats them. Sometimes we’ll go for a hike.

Do something fun together like play a game, go for a walk, or take a hike. Appreciate your mom and tell her you love her. Give her a call. If your mother has passed, sit quietly with your pet and remember her or

With Mother’s Day coming up, we want to share a message for Dr. Susie to let her know what an awesome mom she is. Dr. Jeff is taking over the column just this once (don’t worry, we edited it) to share his words of wisdom on what makes her such an amazing mother to their kids and why he’s grateful to have some more time with family right now. While there are a lot of crummy things going on in the world that we could focus on, I’d rather focus on the good stuff. We had a good reminder of this last month: The trip we were supposed to take as a family got canceled. It was easy to feel upset or frustrated. But as we stood there talking about it, I realized: How
