CORPUS CHRISTI - Mother's Day is such an important holiday to many families here in the Coastal Bend. Several restaurants around the area even held special Mother's Day brunches for those who didn't want to stay home.
Lots of food, flowers, and cards made today extra special for many mothers around town. We spoke with several families who enjoyed brunch with their mother, and each person had a story to tell as to why Mother's Day is so special to them.
One mother, Emma Rangel, says flowers, pretty cards, and her children make Mother's Day special. Another mother, Estella Maldonado, says Mother's Day is special for her because she loves her kids and is happy when they are all around her. Ruth Reeves says that she loved her kids so much, she would've had more if she had been able.
On the other hand, the kids enjoy celebrating Mother's Day, as well. Daniel Rangel says he enjoys Mother's Day not only because he loves his mother very much, but also because it's a day to celebrate everything mothers have done for their kids.
One girl is especially happy to be celebrating this holiday with her family.
"We love to celebrate Mother's Day especially for my grandma and my mom, you know. Just send out cards and gifts," said daughter, Ashlyn Champagne.
Finally, Jazlynn Escamilla says she wishes she could help her mom clean the house, the same way her mom helps Jazlynn clean her room.
"My mom does a lot of work for me, and I love her," said Escamilla.
We want to wish all the mother's out there a happy Mother's Day!
