i need a good mothers day gift because it might be the last?

my mother is very very sick. I want to get her a great gift. Something she can actually use ( she is in and out of the hospital). As horrible as the thought is, there is a very good chance this will be my last mothers day with her. It’s not important that it material or expensive, just something to reinforce how much i love and care about her. any input would be greatly appreciated.

I’m sorry your mother is so ill, and hope that she might recover so you can spend more years with her. For mothers day, spend time letting her know how much you love her. A nice framed photo of the two of you in happier times would be great for her bedside.

    Need more info…..how old are you?what does your mom like to do? Garden? Read? Movies? And…can you get any help on doing something for her? I don’t mean financial help…I mean help in getting something together and wonderful for her before Sunday? If you’ll let me know some details, I think I have some good ideas.

    im very very sorry to hear about your mom.

    if i were you, id get her maid service. shes probably too weak to do a whole lot of cleaning so that would be great. have her house absolutely spotless for the times she comes home from the hospital. i think that would definately lift her spirits!

    OOOhhh ya, and maybe have a beautiful boquet of flowers waiting by her bedside. that way shell think of how much her daughter loves her before she goes to bed each night.

    Write her a letter elaborating on how much she means to you and what a good influence she has had on your life and the lives of others around her. Get her a teddy bear that she can keep with her to comfort her (I know it sounds childish, but deep down, don’t all women just want a little cuddly comfort?) and find a piece of fabric that has some special meaning to you to make into a bow to tie around its neck. A suggestion would be an article of clothing that was worn either by you or by her on a special occasion but that can’t be worn anymore. But the gift is secondary…the letter is the important part. It doesn’t have to be fancy, it just has to be from the heart. You don’t want to miss the chance to tell her how important she is to you, and when she has it in writing, she’ll be able to look at it time and again.

    Gather all the pictures she has of you and her together as you were growing up and put them in an album. Then gather all the pictures of you growing up and put them in an album. Then sit with her all you can and look at those pictures with her and talk about them with her. When my ex died 2 years ago there was so much grief it was almost unbearable. I got out all the hundreds of photos put in drawers and we all just sat and looked at them and talked about them and ended up sitting in the floor just laughing over them. It will cost you nothing but your time, and it will let your mom know how much you treasured being raised by her.

    I think your mother may not be looking for any material gift.Why dont you spend some quality time with her, do things together, share your thoughts, and show her how much you love her?

    First of all, I truly hope your Mom improves. I lost my Mother 17 years ago and I still grieve. We were really close. As for a gift, how about making a small photo album consisting of pictures of you and her. One of the first things I did after I lost my Mom was go through all my pictures to find the ones of her and me. It wouldn’t have to be elaborate, it’s the idea that you did it for her. Then just spend the day with her. Whatever she likes to do or is able to do whether it’s going for a walk, out to lunch, working in the garden, whatever. Just do it with her. Talk to her. Listen to her. Think about questions you might wish you had asked before it was too late. You will never, never regret it. I talked to my Mom three times on Christmas Eve making preparations for Christmas Day. That night she had a massive stroke. I remember teasing her about what I got her for Christmas. I wish I had told her. I did, thank the Lord, tell her how much I loved her.
