The relationship that you have with your mother certainly goes through many phases. She has likely been your caregiver, the light of your life, the demon that keeps you from going out with your friends every night, and is constantly trying to extract personal information from you, your best friend who you are most likely to get a matching tattoo with, or maybe you’ve come full circle and you are her caregiver. Whatever the case may be, the one certainty is that there is no greater bond than that of a mother and child.
As a mother, I can tell you that I remember and cherish every moment spent with my children, even the teen phase when I swore their body had been taken over by aliens. With that being said, I believe that the most precious Mother’s Day gift you can give to your mother is to spend time creating more memories. Paint a picture, plant a tree or her favorite flowers, get your photo taken together, cook or bake something new and adventurous together, get those matching tattoos, get a couple’s massage (see how I got that in there?), just make sure to do something you both enjoy, after all, her greatest joy and accomplishment is your happiness.
