Mother's Day ideas if you can't be there with mom

     I consider myself very lucky. I had my mom in my life for 50 years. A day doesn't pass that something doesn't make me think of her.  Life gets busy sometimes. Some kids move away from home. Looking back I'm happy I spent just about every Mother's Day with my mom. After I got married she would always visit for the weekend and we would making a nice dinner for her. When my kids got older my mom used to love waking up Mother's Day morning because my son Matt would always cook a wonderful breakfast for her. She never worried about gifts. It was spending time together that mattered.  Now that my kids are older I totally get that.

     Sure, there's always flowers and a phone call if you can't be there in person. Thanks to the internet and technology it's a lot easier to spend long distance quality time with mom. So why not try some of these things: 

1. Order something on line and have it delivered to her house. Make it a surprise.

2. Have someone you love visit and make it a special day.

3. Share a meal over Facetime. This is how I plan to celebrate with my daughter. Who is a mom.

4. Watch the same movie when you are on the phone together.

5. Venmo her some money for a spa day.

6. Do a nice Facebook Tribute and post pictures of the good times you've had with her.
