Why Mom Deserves More Than Flowers

As my mom always tells me, “I brought you into this world and I can take you out.” While that’s reason enough for me to surprise her with something better than a bouquet of flowers this year, not everyone’s “mother,” necessarily brought them into this world; however, that doesn’t make them any less of a mother.
Mothers are extraordinary women that put up with a LOT; they’re the backbone of the family, the one who listens to your problems, the one who picks up the pieces, and the one who puts you in your place when you’re wrong. They speak from experience, and do their best to provide you with the tools you need in order to leave the nest and live a fulfilling life of your own someday. The role of a mother doesn’t stop when you turn 18, and they will always tell you to be careful, even when your only defense is, “I know.” What can you say after all, when she never stops worrying about you, regardless of your age or location?
Being a mother is a tough job that doesn’t always get the credit it deserves (this is where you come in). This Mother’s Day, honor Mom’s hard work and never-ending job, with gift ideas that will confirm she raised you right.
