What Gift for Mother’s Day?
The pic is of my parents when they were married in 1922. They each died at age 88, Dad in 1988 and Mother in 1989. She could have lived on but she refused medical treatment saying, “I just want to be with Dad.”
They lived through the Great Depression, the dreaded Polio epidemics that took my sister and WWII which threatened my brother and the Korean War that threatened me and my younger brother. Great people they were and I and my siblings loved them dearly.
Finding a Gift for that Special Mother
To me an appropriate gift would be a gift that “your mother” would appreciate and enjoy. What would that be?
A Gift for an Older Mother
But let’s now say that the gift is for your eighty-year-old mother. Now what? Certainly not a bike, right? OK, so she is still athletic! Maybe flowers would be good for her, maybe a plant instead of flowers that conk off in a few days. Or maybe she is a gardener. You could get her something that would make gardening easier for her.
Women always like clothing and jewelry. Cameras and readers like the Kindle Fire are nice. I have a Kindle Fire and I use it to read books and to read my emails. It will do other things like show web pages but I prefer to do that on my computer.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers.
