    This is great, some people think that buying things is the best way to show your mum love. But experience and research has shown that sharing and telling them how much you love them makes a great difference.

    Nice hub BTW :)

    Anamika S., Great, thorough list. I especially loved #18. Thanks for your hub suggestions for me. By the way, I published my first hub today, called 'Mothers Day Madness'. Hope you enjoy it. More memoir than factual, but I enjoyed writing it, in honor of the memory of my mother.
