"This Sunday is Mother's Day. We sometimes forget how much our moms do for us. The classified ad is just a reminder of all the hard work our moms do. It doesn't take much to show our moms appreciation and love," Lang said.
Here are five ways to show your mom how much she is loved:
Spending time with her. Make this day about her. Ask her what she wants to do and spend the day doing it.
Tell your mom how much you love and care for her. The right words can brighten her day.
Show her how much you appreciate her with a gift—it's not about the money, it's the thought. Mothers love homemade gifts.
Say "Thank you" for all the helpful advice, being a great role model, time spent with you, all the days she called in sick to be with you, etc. Let her know what a great impact she has made on your life.
Remember to show your mother love all year long. Mother's Day is great, but don't wait to show your love.
