My mom never wanted a fuss made over her, and on this particular year she insisted that we should not send flowers. So, instead, I made this card for her with this verse inside:
You said, "Don't send me flowers!"
So what were we to do?
We couldn't picture Mother's Day
Without blossoms for you.
So here's a little bouquet
With flowers that won't grow old,
Sent with all the loving thoughts
A little card can hold.
She loved it, and every year after that, we insisted upon a real bouquet for her.
Miss you, Mom.
