Whether it’s been a while or just recently, now’s the time to think about sending Mom a card or note. Mother’s Day is May 13th.
Sure, you can send flowers and take her out to dinner, but a card with a few personal lines written by you will be a keepsake.
Look for a card that means something to Mom and relates to her favorite flower, color, hobby, or vacation place. If she has a sense of humor, go for a funny card; if a religious one will reach out to her, then look for one of those. Put yourself second and Mom first!
VERY IMPORTANT: Write a few lines of your own on the card. Make it personal. Say something heartfelt. Recall a good memory, a fun time spent together, a special moment in your Mom’s life. If you feel awkward and don’t know what to say, simply writing: “Thinking of you,” or “Thanks for being my Mom,” are good for starters. Find some way to say she is special to you and you are grateful for her.
“All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” -Abraham Lincoln
