I rarely (if ever) have received an actual gift for Mother's Day. Usually my family has done something for me - a service project kind of day.
Last fall my husband and I moved into a house on a lot that has no landscaping. For Mother's Day we purchased and planted 2 trees in memory of our mothers. We will do the same thing for Father's Day. We will therefore continue to be grateful for what our parents do for us.
