Welcome to a special blog series in honor of Mother’s Day: Like a Mother.
Here at afloat, we’re all about celebrating everything and that includes making Mother’s Day special for everyone. We know that not everyone has a perfect relationship with their own mom, may not have a mom or may have trouble becoming a mom themselves. That’s why it’s our job to make everyone who is like a mother (strong, powerful, nurturing, and a badass) feel celebrated on Mother’s Day.
To do so, we asked our store partners (many of them moms themselves!) how they celebrate Mother’s Day, and most importantly, how they describe a person who feels like a mother, whether biological or not.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the caretakers and nurturers out there. We celebrate you! In this edition, we sit down with Dallas store owner Meredith McNeely from Pointer’s Petals.
afloat: Who is the person you’re celebrating this Mother’s Day?
meredith: My Mother, Harriet, she is selfless, caring, wise and steady! I admire her as a wife, mom, daughter and friend and hope to exemplify these traits of her as we raise our children.
afloat: What is one word that you use to describe a person who feels like a mother to you?
meredith: A listener.
afloat: What’s your go-to gift on afloat to celebrate someone who feels like a mother to you and why?
meredith: Madison, whether a Herend figurine, a frame, or a tea towel, they always have what you need and more!
