I try to talk to my mother every day (and if I don't, she calls me!). She has taught me tolerance, patience, caregiving, and unconditional love. She was the original calm and assertive person in my life.
We sit in this room devising new and better ways to celebrate Mother's Day for you. No longer will women have to be subjected to the standard flower bouquet or foot massage cliché that we all know is getting old.
We will spend a record $18.6 billion on Mother's Day gifts this year -- that works out to about $152 per mom. Judging by these figures, a Hallmark card and a macaroni necklace (my go-to gift from age three to 8 years-old) won't cut it this year.
