Here Comes Mother’s Day!
Do you have any suggestion……… on what I can get for my mom, for Mother’s Day? That is a question that I get asked a lot, every year at this time.
How should I answer that? I always tell the customer what my favorite gift is from my kids; Mum-ual-labor! That’s it, that’s what I love best!! A day of me pointing my finger, asking them to do things that I have wanted done for a while….basically yard work! I think it’s the best gift ever…they didn’t have to wrack their brain thinking of a gift, and it has no cost to them except time….I would even feed them at the end of it all, with their favorite refreshments throughout their chores…win-win indeed! Mum-ual-labor!
I thought it was great….but last year my youngest daughter, now 33 said “please, no mum-ual-labor, I would rather buy you something”….We laughed, and I knew that I had driven this road as long as I could!
Yes!! I do have a few suggestions for Mother’s Day gifts for your gardening mums:
Last year, I asked my mum-ual-labor resistant daughter for a Bloomarang Lilac Bush. She brought it to me with a lavender bow, and a big smile, and then she planted it for me! So I still got a bit of mum-ual-labor, a gorgeous plant, and time with her…the best gift of all! Maybe this year my other kids will follow suit!
Time is the greatest gift of all!.....Save time, shop your local Home Depot, or Home Depot.com for all your Mother’s Day gifts!
