You know the woman that suffered through morning sickness and nine months of turning in to a balloon, changed your diapers, read you stories, blew out her birthday candles wishing that you would get into the college of your choice (that one might have just been me)? Better tell her you love her.
1. Digital Card? Of course, with a couple paragraphs of your own heartfelt words.
This one is free and easy from Punchbowl.I-tunes song? I like this one right now. The remix...peppy.
Or a good Country Western song like Martina McBride's "Diamond"..."Cuz Baby You're a Diamond" (I haven't bought this yet...hint).
3. Telephone Call Absolutely...even if your fingers are broken and you are in Tasmania. And if your mom is in heaven, take some time to remember her and some of the good/kind/funny/justbeingthere things she did. A toast or prayer in her honor is appropriate.
4. Make Doing Her Dishes A Bit More Pleasant You know when you buy someone a gift because frankly YOU would like it, too? That's what I did for my mom and mom-in-law. Get her favorite scent. Here. You could also DO the dishes for her.
If it won't get there in time...send her a screen shot of it.
And this doesn't really count as inexpensive, but I would like a new Fitbit bracelet...I lost my clip-on one...and this will be harder to lose.
Happy, happy day to all you moms.
It's the hardest and best job you will ever have!
We appreciate you.
