I Heart Mom

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, my siblings and I are scrambling for something to give her. Yes, we give her presents or take her out for lunch for Mother’s Day because it’s just what we do.

I’m not saying what we came up with for her this year because she might actually read this, the sneaky woman, and know what she’s getting. But I will say that we try to get her something unique every year, something she’s always wanted. One year it was a digital picture frame (which I don’t think she uses). The next year it was an MP3 player (which she uses all the time and swears she needs another one). She’s been hinting for us to buy her a laptop (she’s in dream land) or a tablet (she’s really sniffing something she shouldn’t).

Presents aside, my mom is spoiled every day of the year. If she ever says she isn’t, don’t believe her. I spoil the hell out of her all year long, but Mother’s Day is a special day for her. She’s one of my biggest fans who doesn’t read my work (too hot for her). She’s my support when I’m feeling low no matter what has me down. If I thought she’d appreciate it, I might think about getting a I heart mom tattoo (except she hates tattoos…which is why I have three *cough*).

So I show Mom how I love her in other ways. This year, if weather permits, I’ll be taking her to Jefferson Island to the Rip Van Winkle Gardens and Avery Island.

What do you do for your mom that’s extra special for Mother’s Day?

    Our plans may be affected by the weather. We’ve been talking about a picnic in the upper meadow. But local forecasts for Sunday afternoon call for likely showers. I guess we could move it to Sat., but there are schedule conflicts.
    Not sure what we’ll do.
    My mom will be 90 in August.
    This Sunday is also baby dedication day at church and our newest grandchild (about 10 mos.) will be presented. If my mom feels up to it, we’ll take her with us.


  2. Alas, mine is no longer with us…I regret the days,(Mother’s or otherwise) that I made her feel unappreciated…Go for it!

      I’m sorry, Tonette. I can’t imagine how hard that must be.


      • Thanks, Danica…hard to believe,but it will be 10 years ago next month.It took me months to stop actually walking over to the phone to tell Mom something funny I saw on TV, (or the like), then another several to remember before I left my chair, and I was there at the end,(which was hard). Have fun with yours while you can, and for hose whose mothers aren’t nearby, CALL! Long-distance is free these days!


  3. I adore your mom and the relationship you two have. She’s super and I’ll always be grateful to her for being so kind to me when I needed friends!! Give her a big ole hug from me and buy that woman some good food for mom’s day!

    Unfortunately, I don’t do anything special for my mother. She lives in California, and I’m in Ohio. And even if I were in California, she wouldn’t want me to do anything special (she’s a very picky person and complains – a lot). But I do send her gifts (I’d feel guilty if I didn’t send SOMETHING, even though she probably doesn’t like anything I give her) and I make sure to call.

    You have a great relationship with your mother. One I have with my daughter. I knew all the things I didn’t want to do when I was a mother – guess I have my own mother to thank for that.

    I can vouch for you having a super cool mom having met her at the conference. It was wonderful to meet her. And hey, she had to be pretty cool to have a kid as awesome as you!
