They invented notifications before smartphones existed. They were our alarm clocks. They definitely were our reminder system even if we tried to turn them off…brush your teeth, put on a jacket, etc.
They are our mothers. We only get one, and no matter how much they nag or embarrass us, they love us to death. We love them too. No matter what happens in life they will always have our backs, and do their best to protect us. They only want what’s best.
One day out of the entire year is dedicated to our lovely mothers, so why not get them something to show your appreciation for Mother’s Day.
Mother’s Day is Sunday May, 8th for 2016
