I moved to the USA ten years ago, to fulfill my dreams, but to also make all the hard work my mother put into me, worth it. Every year, around mother's day it gets really tough...I want to shower her with love and affection and take her to fun brunches and spa days...but I live thousands of miles away. To be honest, I don't know the last time I spent mothers day with her...probably ten years ago.
This year, I was so determined to give my mum a relaxing day where she could feel like the queen she is.The challenge was that it was too hard to organize someone to go pick her up and dash through Accra to get her to her spa date, and I knew I couldn't ask her to drive herself. Just imagine how that convo would go
"Hi mum, I am organizing a relaxing day for you. Can you drive there yourself, and make sure you aren't late?"
Thanks to the folks at UBER, I was able to not only organize a full packed spa day for mum, and using an Uber Gift card, my sister was able to organize a driver to chauffeur her in style to her relaxation treat. My heart melted when I got to speak to her after her day. She felt like a princess without even having to lift a finger.What I love about my mom is how much of a big deal she even makes the little things. She told all her friends that I organized a driver all the way from America in a private car. Gotta love my African mum!!!!! (Here are a few snaps from Mums lovely day. )
I was literally giddy writing this post. To see my mummy smiling like a teenager in love makes me the happiest daughter ever. Although I was in Chicago, I was able to make her feel like the queen she is.
I know a ton of you are also away from your mums this mothers day and want to make her feel incredibly special. Whether she lives in a different state or a different country, you can help her put her feet up on Mother's day. It is super easy to get her an Uber gift card, Gift cards are available for purchase online at Uber.com and amazon or in-store at Best Buy and Walgreens.
The best part is that you are able to gift mum anywhere from $10 - $500, which means she can enjoy your mothers day treats beyond just one day!!!!!
Happy Mothers day in advance to you and your mums!!!!

Thank you to Uber for partnering with me on this post to make this Mother's day a success!
