Easy ways to tell Mom
that she’s simply the best


To create a stand-out Mother’s Day, start with a memory.

Get a pencil and think of all the special times you shared with your mother – how she was there to help you with your homework, drive you around, make your meals, read you a story, put you to bed, take care of you when you were sick … the list goes on and on.

Jot down a sentence or two about details you recall most vividly – can you almost taste the lasagna that she made for your birthday, with that secret ingredient she would never reveal?
Maybe you remember the hand-lettered posters she made when you ran for student council. Or the time she took you and your friends to see the Rolling Stones.

Is there some special interest or hobby you have because Mom took you on a trip or gave you a book on the subject? A lesson she taught you that has been a lifesaver on countless occasions?

Granted, we don’t all have perfect relationships with our mothers. So, if you’d rather look to the future than the past, ask yourself if there are ways you could patch up any differences and get closer to Mom.

Whatever it is, write it down on a nice sheet of paper with an expression of gratitude. You might say, “Do you remember this? I do. Not sure I said it at the time, but I appreciate it.” Or just “Mom, you’re the best.”

Along with the note, consider telling Mom how you feel. It may or may not be hard for you, but she’ll love hearing it.

Once you start thinking, you’ll probably have lots of good times to choose from. Do you have any photos or video that captured the moment? If so, make copies for Mom and the rest of the family. (Be sure to bring a camera if you’re spending Mother’s Day together this year.)
Pink Roses

Another idea is to buy her a journal and personalize it by pasting photos on a few of the pages. Write down your funny or touching memories – what you wore, what you ate, what you laughed at until you cried. Who knows, maybe you’ll inspire her to write her memoir on the rest of the pages.

Or you could buy a blank card and jot down a poem or a proverb, such as this Jewish adage: “God could not be everywhere, so he created mothers.”

The perfect complement to notes, cards, photos and journals is a gorgeous arrangement of fresh flowers. A celebration of spring colors and graceful forms, a hand-delivered and hand-arranged bouquet exquisitely underlines your heartfelt thanks for all she’s done for you and how much she means to you.

Pink Flowers
When choosing fresh flowers for Mother’s Day, you can’t go wrong with pink roses, a symbol of gratitude and appreciation, or pink carnations, which represent maternal love. A mixed bouquet is another great candidate and it’s a gift the whole family can share and enjoy. Flowers – just like Mom – make us all feel good.

Presenting your floral arrangement in a cute keepsake along with a note, card, framed photo or personalized journal means Mom has gifts that endure long after the blooms are gone.

And, finally, here’s some Mom-like advice to encourage you to plan: Don’t wait till the last minute to jog your memory, pull out your pictures and order your bouquet. See? She was right all along.
