The Gift of Time

Mothers Day is coming up soon.  If you are like me your thinking...what do I get my mother?  What do you get  the mother who doesn't need anything and wants nothing?  Instead of giving a monetary gift, how about giving the gift of time?

You could offer to clean the house, wash the car or do the laundry.  Every mom needs a break and taking some of her daily/weekly responsibilities off her hands may be the perfect gift.  She could spend the time she would use on doing chores on something she actually enjoys.  You could even offer to mow the yard or help with other yard work.

You don't always have to spend money on holidays.  Sometimes the gift of time holds a higher value than any store bought present.
