Happy Mother's Day from SERVPRO® of Springfield

Happy Mother's Day from SERVPRO® of Springfield.

SERVPRO® of Springfield would like to send out Happy Mother’s Day wishes for May 13th! In honor of all the moms out there, we thought we would offer up some fun and relaxing ideas to get everyone in the right frame of mind.

  1. Be Present! Let Mom know how special she is by putting the phone and remote down this holiday and have fun chatting, playing a game or going for a walk.
  2. Planning on buying Mom flowers? Why not some that you can all plant together? It will be a wonderful gift and the perfect time to make a memory or two.
  3. Going to Mom’s for dinner? Maybe offering to do the clean-up afterward would help take some of the stress off Mom’s plate.
  4. Too far for a visit? A handmade card is quick to make and will remind Mom of all the cards you made her while you were growing up.

Mothers are special people and we are proud to honor them!

We are always here to help at SERVPRO® of Springfield. Give us a call at 217-528-7775.
