For Mother's Day I made a statement to all my kids.
No cards on Mother's Day. Don't get me one. No pressure ever. If you want to get me a card, get it some random time when you ARE thinking of me, not BECAUSE it's a holiday.
So we have a new tradition... where ever they are, they write on their hands, "We Love You Mom".
This is great for a couple reasons:
1. I know they are alive and well.
2. I know they love me.
3. I see them.
