Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10
My mother was a schoolteacher. One afternoon she came home tired and dispirited, so my younger brother and sister brought her a cup of tea and sang for her. So simple, and I don’t think anything has touched her more.
Go easy on the outward form on Mother’s Day, and focus on the inner substance. You can’t bamboozle your mother! Give her what she wants, which is probably some time with you, and some of the grace notes of life.
Dare I say flowers?
