Well last year I bought a digital frame for my mom, and she did like it very much. My mom used to learn little about art. So I intend to buy some paiting for her. And I hope to find something unique. I have found Canvas Art looks very nice. I found a deal for Leonardo da Vinci The Last Supper, even higher price than a digital frame. But I guess my mom will like it.

Im sending my mom flowers and a card for Mother's Day. Also will be calling her and telling her just how grateful I am for her. My mom is one of my best friends

My actual present to her will be coming home for a visit for the last week of May. Will get to spend my birthday with her too during that time .

Good idea to go visit your mom. Best gift you can give is the gift of time. Maybe, despite the gas prices, I will go visit my mom. Maybe I will surprise her.

I just ordered 2 dozen assorted colored roses to be sent to my mother May 8th. She's got lovely roses in the front and back yards of her house and is stressed about what color to plant to replace a rosebush she recently lost so my note says maybe these will help her decide. That hassle is done and I have a card to send. Now to figure out what to do for my son's 22nd May 10th. Decisions....decisions......

I was trying to keep it on the downlow.



In all seriousness, it's so heartbreaking to think of these kids who don't get to see their parents ever.

Not to derail the intent of this post, its even more heartbreaking that some parents don't see their kids even when they aren't incarcerated...that's whats sad...I hope your mom enjoys her gift...

I usually buy mine flowers and take her to breakfast. I always want to do more, but it's what she wants.

She's a lucky lady Mr. Baw

I don't know what to do for mom this year. It's been a tough one with her being ill and at the moment, stuck at home. Maybe we'll go over & bring some food in for her & visit. As for me, I just hope my kid & hubby remember. I may be lucky to get a card

For Mother's Day I bought my brother a plane ticket to come visit that weekend.

He lives in New York and she hasn't seen him in years.

That's a nice gesture beegee. My sister is making a donation to Livestrong in our mom's name since she's battling breast cancer. My sister does a lot of work for Livestrong.

Thank you . This the first mother's day ever that I won't get to spend with her in person. Rather sad but Im trying to make the best of it!

I think you should surprise your mom with a visit. Bet it will make her day

I'm giving my mom tickets to see Neil Diamond at Fenway Park. She took me to see him when I was 8 - it was my first concert
