Something you make is much more meaningful than anything you could buy.

That may be an exaggeration, but it’s about being sentimental. Sure the cards you buy are special, but something you make is definitely from your heart.MothersDayCard

Moms and Grandmoms are always fixing up good things to eat. Or they found a great deli and bakery.

I think a day out with Mom during the week of Mother’s Day would be a wonderful way to spend quality time with your mother. I know Mother’s Day is special for many and you have everything planned out . . . but for others it seems to be just something one has to do.

It can be a bit awkward. It can be very special.

I think making a mini-album for Mom would be another way of expressing the love you have for your mother. It can show pictures going way back.

I remember finding old pictures of my mom and making them into an album was truly the highlight of her Mother’s Day. It was a gift she couldn’t stop looking at . . . she kept it close by throughout the year.

Being a mother is special . . . and remembering . . . and being told . . . and shown through pictures of how special she is . . . is truly priceless.

Just something to think about.

Flowers and candy are nice, but they’re flowers and candy . . . give something from your heart.
