I just sent an email to my 96 y/o Mom inviting her to dinner at a local restaurant that specializes in seafood. I suggested Friday to avoid the crowds on Sunday. I was also thinking about what to get her and found this website: 8 best Mother's Day gifts 2019 I have no affiliation with this website or the products on it, just sharing it to begin a conversation for anyone interested. Also, I'm sorry for all whose Mother is no longer with us. I hope for those folks they too will find an appropriate way to celebrate the impact their Mom had on their life and those around her. My Mom is great and has been there for me all my life. She's a Navy vet too and was stationed in Norfolk to help process our military coming back at the end of WWII. That's how she met my Dad! For those long distance scenarios.....get that card in the mail soon!
