Celebrating Mother's Day When You Have No Money

mother daughter loveI want to give my Mom something cool for Mother’s Day...something that shows her how much I love her.  But I don’t have any money. What should I do?


Lisa Godfrees3Lisa Godfrees says:

Your mother loves you and anything you do that shows you were thinking of her will melt her heart. You don't have to buy her something. In fact, sometimes it's better that you don't.

Think about what your mother likes to do best. Does she love to read? Write her a story. Does she love to garden? Spend a day working with her outside. Does she need a break? Offer to make lunch. Surprise her with breakfast in bed. Make her a card.

You are the expert on your mom. You might not have any money to spend, but you can be rich in creativity.
