Well, for my country mothers day is coming up. I was wondering what all of you moms would love to have or have happen on mothers day? Would you like a day to spend with a friend (go shopping, lunch, spa, etc.)? Is breakfast in bed from spouse/ sign. other and kids the best? Also, to the men...what do you think you should do for the mother in your life? How about for YOUR mother?

am still bereaved for my mom who passed away few years agao. the lasti gifted her was a shawal from kashmir while still lies under my dad's pillow. if she were there today I would have decided to make a CD of special tunes for my mum this year and have some at the moment which are: 'beautiful' by Christina Aguilera; 'Mama' by Spice Girls; ' Because you loved me' by Celine Dion; 'the best' by Tina Tuner; 'Still the one' by Shania Twain and last but not the least 'your song' by Elton John

What I would really love is to be able to go home to Michigan and be with my mother and adult daughter. That isnt feasible this year due to work schedules and the rising price of gasoline. So I will go to Church. Come home a fix dinner. My husband probably will be working that day,and my step-daughter will probably not eveb know what day it is.

I pretty much spend mothers day the same way every year. My sisters and I and our spouses and kids all put together a brunch for my mother. I feel it is very important to do something for my mother even though I am a mother also. The brunch is always at my house, so once everyone leaves, I spend time with my kids ( my husband usually works mothers day.) If it is nice outside, which is very rare, I will sit in the sun and my kids will get me drinks, snacks ect. If it is crappy weather, we will usually hit the video store and watch dvds. When my husband gets home around dinner time we usually have his mom here for dinner. I would love to have one mothers day for myself not having to worry about the other moms in my life, but that would be very selfish of me.

since my mother is in abroad..i would like to take the initiative on calling her on the phone (though long distance call is too xpensive!)..it's to greet her a happy mother's day..i know that she will be very happy hearing from us and knowing that we remember her at mother's day..

I prefer to have it completely ignored. Thank goodness my kids feel the same way I do about holidays, especially commercial ones like Mother's Day. Our relationship isn't based on things like gifts or on phone calls for so-called "special" days.
