  • The birth of my first child was the best Mother’s Day gift I received. – Mary
  • After the birth of my oldest son, my ex-husband and I were arguing around Mother’s Day. My mom knew he wasn’t going to be getting me anything. She bought me flowers and a card from my son that said, “Thank you for having me mommy!” My son is 28 now and even though I’ve received many gifts since then, that is the best gift I ever received for Mother’s Day! My mom always made everything special! – Roxanne
