How do you thank the person who saved your butt so many times? Im talking about my mom....she came out for my graduation this weekend, and saw that we were low on food. She put almost 200$ in grocerys in my house. Then comes the landlord....to tell me that I have an eviction notice. And what does she do??? She pays it for me....

How do you thank the person who is there for you even when you arent a perfect child? I want to do something for her....just out of ideas.

I'm not sure there is ever a way we could adequately thank our Moms or the other people in our life who are always there to rescue us, be it monetarily or emotionally. Your Mom will adore whatever you offer her just because it's from you. You could send her flowers for no particular occassion, take her out to eat, or perhaps treat her to a day at the spa! It would mean so much to her for you to just go spend special time with her! Tell her thank you and how much she means to you, and that you love her so dearly!

I have often just sent my mother a card just to say thankyou for all those little things that we so often take for granted. Remember that just the simple gesture can mean the world to your mother and what a wonderful mum she seems - bless her

A card. A phone call. All the little "staying in touch" things, that don't cost an arm and a leg, but say beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are thinking of her and love her. And of course, take every opportunity you're handed to say the words, "Mum, know what? I love you!" More than all the extravagant gifts you'd love to get her, these are the really special things.

You could spend $$$$ but the most meaningful thing that you could do is to tell her Thank You for being there!

I know that would be more treasured than anything for me.

Just tell her you love her - be it with a card, flowers or a phone call if you don't see her that often. All mums love the little things we can give them - it doesn't have to expensive - It's true 'The Thought Counts Most'.

I agree with everyone else. A card sounds like a great idea. It's also something that will last and she will always have. I would suggest sending it with flowers or something, but my guess is your mother wouldn't wasnt you to spend the money on that!

You're blessed to have such a wonderful mom .
Definitely a card....with most moms, the sappier the better
And, of course, the greatest way to thank your mother is to be that kind of mother yourself should you ever have children!

Write her a letter. A LONG letter. Talk about your childhood and how you did things to upset her (like I think we all did) and how patient she was during your teen years, thank her for every single thing she's ever done, selflessly... write the letter with YOUR handwriting, not on the computer.

I like the card idea --- however --- something about Hallmark doesn't quite hit the mark with moms. I know this cuz I am one. I prefer to see my OWN daughter's words, her OWN thoughts, about how she loves me, appreciates me, etc. She made me a card for mother's day and I swear it was as wordy as an 8 yr old can get!!!! A mom would MUCH rather have a hand-written, from the heart note than a store-bought card.

However if you want to present it pretty, write it on paper & buy a plain card & stick it in there. Or, take a picture of your own (of you, your cats, a pretty landscape), and print it out on card stock, then write your letter & stick it inside.

I think it's great she did those things for you! Aren't moms wonderful?
