e mothers day

i have failed to purchase my mom anything this mothers day. i suck.
is it socially acceptable yet to send an e card for such an occassion?
maybe it depends on the mother. my mother has an ibook, does that change anything?

No.


Get an actual card. The woman gave birth to you, for God's sake.

an e-card would be better than nothing.
I'd wager she would prefer if you wrote an e-letter and attached a recent pic of your gorgeous self .
It's not until Sunday...you still have time to redeem yourself.
Actually we don't do the Mother's Day thing...more out of control commercialism imho. My sons show they care any old time, in many ways.
My mother on the other hand enjoys it. We always had a mother's day concert at Sunday School and made them corsages of chrysanthemum's and maiden hair. This year will be very special. My mother, her daughters, their daughters and their daughters, 4 generations ...of assembled beauty. I can't wait
in fact I can't.... I'm leaving today

I have had one nagging doubt. One of my sisters is a Jehovah Witness. They don't attend Christmas and birthday celebrations, we've never had a gathering before especially for Mother's Day. I wonder if she will be there?

despite her ibook, an ecard will just not cut it kobesan. at least send flowers or something.

Depends on the mom. Handwritten letters mean more to my mom than anything in the world. She can really pour on the guilt with things like, "So, I haven't heard from you in a while so I went back and re-read some of your old letters."

So I sent her a long letter and some pictures. It's better than any gift I could buy her.

Can you get flowers or chocolates or something delivered to her home on mother's day?

But I definitely think sending an e-card is a nice idea too.

I agree. Maybe you could get some little thing just to shoe how much you appreciate her. I taking my mom out to dinner, and I know that she will be happy with that.
