What to gift her this Mother's Day

To those mothers in our community, Happy Mother's Day. Your time is the most valuable gift you can give your parents, let it be your Mother or Father. "The aim of this video is to simply say thank you to all those mothers who work with us".

I read somewhere most mothers don't want flowers for Mother's Day.

And the gratitude at this complete reversal of fortune, this miracle that took a broken heart and made it whole, includes within it (can't help but include within it) an awareness of all the other mothers who aren't invited to the brunch.

"It's a 24-hour job", explained Christy Savage of Vestavia Hills. It is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years.

I am no exception; my Mother sacrificed everything to ensure that her children were afforded opportunities she didn't have.

Perhaps due to circumstances not everyone knew their mom, or grew up with her in daily life, but she was there when we took our first gasp of air.

You don't have to be flawless and you certainly don't have to know exactly what to do at every moment. "Y'all be quiet!" And she said in her semi-sleepy way "Um, hmm, that's right, honey, that's right".

I, of course, having no children, can understand the feeling of being "outside" on this day.

If your mother is alive and well, by all means go to wherever she is if you can get there and give the day to her if you can. That would be wonderful.

I know you love me, I can tell by the way that you kiss me, tight when you hug me. She was cheering on her son, Seth, captain of the Enterprise High team as she said, "They can come!" She tries her best to go the third mile with each of them. In one scene, a mom takes her two small boys out on the city streets and teaches them how to make a commute fun - ending the ride with a stop at a diner.

Anna Jarvis was not happy with the way her idea turned out.

As I sat down to write this open letter to all those like me who no longer have their mothers here on Earth, I literally began to cry. And she won, for Grissom! I remember the little things too - the way she would laugh when people asked if we were sisters, or the way she tilted her head back and closed her eyes when contemplating life.

Admit it, we seldom appreciate her efforts and deeds. However, upon growing, we seem to have lost or neglected the word "love" for mothers from our lives. I can't wait to be a Dad. Then, do share it with us. Offer to do an activity she loves on the same weekend - go hiking, go shopping, go to a movie. Anna's mother, Ann Jarvis, had cared for the wounded on both sides during the Civil War and formed a Mother's Friendship Day for both Union and Confederate mothers. Savage responded. "I love homemade cards". "They all cook. I have three boys, and they always do a special breakfast".

Mother's Day is going to be celebrated on this Sunday, May 14. Along with handmade crafts and pictures, she loves a necklace she received one Mother's Day that has each child's name on it. "Somebody" thinks a child comes with directions and a guarantee. So we can say it definitely achieved its objective and since it didn't cost me anything this time, I guess it can't be all that bad.
