It’s that time of year again! Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 11, which means that if you haven’t gotten a gift for your lovely lady, you have only a few days to get your stuff together. Flowers and a card are all well and good, but how about stepping it up this year? There are more sentimental and unique ways to show your mom how much you love her.
Buy a pretty journal. On the inside cover, explain that you and your mother will each take turns writing in the journal. Each of you could have it for a week or a month or however long you choose. At the end of the time period, send the journal back and now it’s the other person’s turn! The journal entries can be questions you have for each other, a chronicle of your daily life or even a therapeutic way to release old hurts. This is a great way to maintain closeness for those who don’t get to see or talk to their mothers much or just a unique way to communicate instead of using the phone.
