- Call your mom?
- Drop her a letter, card or note?
- Pass on a photograph?
- Visit her?
- Take her out for lunch, shopping, to visit a friend or just for a drive?
This makes the point that the best gift is often you! If answering any of these make you a bit uncomfortable, there’s a good chance you’re not paying enough attention to your mom.
Doctor Savvy has a great tip for you! If your mom’s like mine, she technologically challenged. Today’s laptops, ultra books, tablets and smart phones are easier to use than ever. Consider getting one for your mom and teaching her how to use it. This opens up a world of new possibilities to engage with her by E-mail, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube videos and more!
A good rule of thumb … treat your mom as you’d like your kids to treat you. When you reach your “golden years”, if you look back on your life with any regrets it will likely not be for what you did but rather what you didn’t do!
