This time of year the media is overrun with nifty ideas of what to buy mom, or where to take her and whatever you do, don't forget to do this! But really, what do most moms want on Mother's Day? I'd venture to say not another bauble, or overpriced meal, or flowers guaranteed to fade. I'd like to think that your typical mom wants to feel appreciated, cared for and loved. None of which requires anything greater than paying attention, showing affection, taking the time to help with life's many mundane obligations and sharing simple pleasures.
Just like all the other days of the year when you think about it.
