What To Get Mom On Mother’s Day 2014?
When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. ~Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty
The Long-Distance Mom
Mother’s Day is the mother of flower sales, with just under $2 billion spent on plants. Flowers are great because they can be ordered over the phone or online, for the ones who love their mom but just can’t be with them on this honored day. Flowers say the beautiful words that you can’t, they brighten a room and linger for days serving as a constant reminder of your love for her.
