My mother has always been very giving and caring. She reversed mothers day on my two sisters and myself when we were very young. Instead of us making her gifts or buying her something, she bought us gifts and made us little cards and such. She said we made her a mother and that has made her life complete. She would always catch us trying to do something for her and make us stop. When we were all out on our own we were able to put together a day for her just after her birthday and before mothers day that she never saw coming.
We had family members and some of her HS friends fly cross country to be there for an entire day of surprises. At 7 AM we served her breakfast in bed (all 3 kids) to lunch with her classmates, spa with her best friends, dinner with the family with limo service and the topper of the night.... we handed her a box (with her cake in it) to walk in the house and had a surprise party inside. She didn't even realize it was a cake box!
We can never top that day but it is always talked about as the years go by. I think that is the last time we had the entire family in one location
If I am considered for the contest I would like to donate it to a breast cancer patient.
I just love my mom and this memory is very special to me
