"When I was in college, I got my mom a little plaque that had a saying about mother-son relationships. I can't remember the exact saying, but it made her cry."
"In fifth grade I spent two hours trying to make my mom breakfast, and it didn't turn out well. The coffee had chunks in it. When I brought it to her, she said she wasn't hungry.
"Fifteen years later, I made her a healthy breakfast with protein-infused pancakes, eggs, turkey bacon, Ezekiel bread and jam and tea. That one she ate!"

"Most of my Mother's Day gifts were handmade. Some were beautiful, some bizarre and some were even ugly. But all of them are priceless! I still have many of the gifts my kids made from years ago."
"I remember when I was six or seven, my older sister and I bought our mom what I thought was a really cool picture with a clock inside. I was pretty excited about it and was sure my mom would be impressed. It was huge.
"Unfortunately my mom hated it and said something along the lines of, "I don't need any more clocks!" I was heartbroken. Needless to say we had to take it back.
"As an adult, I never buy anything for my mom. I simply take her shopping and let her pick her own stuff!"
