Need A Gift To Fit In Your Mother’s Day Card?
My mother passed away years ago, but when she was alive, she didn’t live near me for several years. We didn’t have the money in those years to pay for a florist to deliver flowers to her home nor did we have the money to send a large parcel, so I got creative with my gift giving and instead gave her gifts that fit within a card.
