Today we honor mothers and motherhood. Like Father's Day, Mother's Day is celebrated on different days of the year throughout the world. Here in the US, President Woodrow Wilson made Mother's Day a national holiday in 1914. And although it's become super commercialized, what most mothers really want is love and validation for everything they do.
So be sure to call your mom and spend time with her doing what she enjoys. Take your cues from her, and listen twice as much as you talk. A good gift is thoughtful. Give your mother gifts you can afford, but things that make her life easier, better or joyful. In addition to time spent with you, mom should recieve things she wants, not things you want her to have.
Happy Mother's Day to you, Mam'ma! (I usually call her "Mom," but she signs all her cards "Mamma.") xoxo.
