Mother's Day is long gone, but I urge you to keep that feeling of appreciation alive. We all know it should take more than a Hallmark holiday to love up on someone. The pre-determined date of Mom's day almost forces someone to think about their mom. The salesman that sits behind me would ask everyday leading up to this date, "When's Mother's Day?" I'd tell him, and then he'd say "I gotta go get her a card" "Get your mom more than a card," I'd reply; he'd laugh and tell me a different mom memory. Really, he's in sales, spend some of that commission on your mother. Finally, the Friday prior to the big day, he went online and sent heartfelt, overpriced flowers. Still, he acknowledged her. My point it, lots of ideas were floating around as ways to love on mom. Don't let these fade away until next year. Honest appreciate and thankfulness is what she loves. A time for afternoon tea at a fancy hotel wouldn't hurt either.
