What I Want For Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is coming, and the hunt for the perfect Mother’s Day gifts is on. It’s a yearly challenge for all hunters to come up with something that not only expresses their appreciation of the mothers in their life, but also something that those mothers would welcome as a gift.

Can you feel it?

The air is thick with tension. It’s time to figure out Mother’s Day gifts.

People who have mothers or are partners with a mother or know someone who’s a mother are all experiencing PTGSD (Pre Traumatic Gift Selection Disorder).

Here’s a list of the top seven gifts that would help me feel all of those things. I’m willing to bet that the mothers in your life would love these, too.

So, a photo of my kids together, all getting along, and all in the same location. Dressed nicely. Hair combed.  Even if it just lasted long enough for that one photo, nothing is more beautiful to me.  In a quality frame, ready for me to display….
