Celebrating Mother's Day 2012: Mother's Day Poems, Gifts & Ideas
Mother's Day has been bittersweet for me since I lost my mother in 1991. It hardly seems possible that I haven't seen her in more than 20 years. The endless TV commercials and radio jingles remind me how much I miss my mom, but they also bring some treasured memories to mind: her laugh, her smile, the way she cared for me when I was sick, the weekend drives we took in the country when she was sick with cancer just to get away and enjoy the day.
If you have a mother, no matter what emotional baggage might come with the relationship, make sure she knows she is loved. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there.

Mother's Day Ideas: Queen for a Day on a Tight Budget
Many readers may not remember the old television program (which actually started as a radio show in 1945) called "Queen for a Day." The show was a forerunner of reality TV shows as female contestants had to tell real-life stories to win. The lady who won would be gowned in a red velvet robe, given a sparkling crown, and handed a dozen long-stemmed roses, and she would win other prizes and trips. The "Queen for a Day" program always ended with the words, "Make every woman a queen, for every single day!"
