Many people say: "Oh, I have never forgotten a gift for my Mom on Mother's Day!"
But I must wonder, have you remembered to call her, once a day, once a week, once a month?
Are you the type of son or daughter that only waits for the "responsible sibling" to come nagging you about calling Mom. If your Mother is not dead, someday she will. That is a fact of life. So, do not procrastinate and CALL (or visit if you are close) your Mother, right now.
I have been a very good daughter, and a very bad one, I admit it, it's not easy to say it out loud, but God knows I try to improve my daughters' skills every day. If I had a dollar for every time I was going to phone my Mom and then I was distracted, it would have paid for a couple of college tuitions! Instead I have an equivalent number of regrets...
So, please allow me to be today that "rude and mean" friend that reminds you about the cold truth:
DO NOT WAIT for just Mother's Day or the Holidays to make contact, to send a gift, do it TODAY, life is short. Tell her you love her. Tell her you appreciate the times she made you get out of bed when you didn't want to, the times she ironed your clothes, the times she kissed your scratched knees, the times she was patient enough to teach you how to drive, the times she taught you kindness, the times she cooked for you, even when she was beyond tired or not feeling like doing anything...
Thank her for teaching you (and showing with acts) right versus wrong.
SHOW you love her, show you care, send her a gift, a note, perhaps a plant, but at least CALL HER, now... trust me, you will thank me later...
