The new Mother's Day must-have gift: an experience

While she's lounging around maybe do some cleaning around the house for her. It's a priceless gem to society when it's done well.

Of course, I will also celebrate and give special honor my wife, Gloria, the mother of our four children.

Mothers lead the next generation of leaders of business, communities and nations. God has given to mothers, and to fathers, the responsibility to teach and guide our children toward him.

For many, the three scariest words you could hear growing up were: "I'm telling mom".

Julia Ward Howe, a Boston poet, pacifist, suffragist and author of the lyrics to the "Battle Hymn of the Republic", also has been credited with suggesting a "mother's day", as she organized a day encouraging mothers to rally for peace about 130 years ago. Mothers have more influence in our lives than any other person we will ever meet.

And the gratitude at this complete reversal of fortune, this miracle that took a broken heart and made it whole, includes within it (can't help but include within it) an awareness of all the other mothers who aren't invited to the brunch.

To celebrate, make sure your mom is being spoilt and that her needs are put first for the whole day. The mom that they perceive is right out of a story book.

We recognize so many different kinds of moms.

British Columbia Liberals hang on to win minority government

"From you, we learn to raise hell, the bar, and our voices". Offer to do an activity she loves on the same weekend - go hiking, go shopping, go to a movie.

We all can't afford to buy our moms a fancy dinner but if you try to recreate one of her favorite foods it won't go unnoticed. So, how can you make her happy? The prospect of facing their mothers after rejecting an official Mother's Day may have been what prompted so many in Congress to keep running and build seniority. Little ones could give her a coupon book filled with things like a free foot massage, take out the trash or a free hug and kiss, all things that any mom I know would appreciate.

If you belong to the first category, are you thinking of the days when you made your mother sad previous year? What can I do so she doesn't feel forgotten? We are lucky to live on Mother Earth!

Mothers are known for nurturing their own children as well as other children, regardless of age or address.

Why don't we all promise a positive change this Mother's Day?

Your mother is always there for you through every thick-and-thin of your life. As we go through our lives, we need to take time to come close to our mothers. It doesn't matter if you're 15 or 35, you mum's got your back. For the past two and a half years (or longer if you include pregnancy) I have witnessed the sacrifices, care, understanding, struggles and endless love a mother has for their child from a husband's point of view.

A mother's unconditional love can't be replaced.
