All in all, it was the simplest, most low-key Mother's Day we've ever had. But you know what? It was absolutely perfect. Spending this time with my mom in quarantine has taught us the true meaning of Mother's Day 2020: life, laughter, love — and, most importantly, patience!

To symbolize the strength, love and compassion of G-mom's golden heart, this year, the kids and I gifted her with a gold heart from Moira Anne. (Moira Anne gifted the necklace to Jaclyn. A percentage of her proceeds go to various charities, including COVID-19 related ones.) This token of love was meant to commemorate what her spirit has taught our family throughout this pandemic: that despite the distress and chaos in the world, we can all find within us a little bit of care and kindness to help lift others. Together, we will all get through this!
