Western Union – Return The Love

My mom came to get me in 1989. I was three and she was in her 20′s. It was like that’s the way life was supposed to be. For everything my Mother gave me I can never repay her. It’s days like Mother’s Day that makes me step back and truly appreciate my mother. I often send her letters and cards telling her how much she means to me, but nothing is quite like Mother’s Day. I’ve never had a love like the way my Mom loves me. And I know you feel the same.

This Mother’s Day Western Union is helping to give moms the perfect gifts. Western Union set up a Flickr page where users can submit pictures of their moms. And each week Western Union will select photos from the gallery to share on their homepage. In fact, this past weekend Western Union hosted a concert at Camp Pendleton, in San Diego, for military families which featured Wyclef Jean and Paulina Rubio. It’s was a wonderful celebration of love!

Western Union just sent me an Mother’s Day gift — a $50 Western Union gift card. What mom couldn’t use $50? They also sent me some additional $50 Western Union-branded gift cards to give to my favorite moms (my readers!) on Mother’s Day!

    No chores, and some time to work in the garden. I sent my mother some heirloom flower seeds for Mothers’ Day.

    My sisters and I always take my mother shopping for annual flowers for Mother’s Day. She has an incredible perennial garden, but likes to punch it up with color and variety, using different annuals each year. It’s such a nice trip for just us girls!

    This year I discovered a new perfume that is similar to her signature scent, but with a bit of a twist and surprised her with that as well!

    For myself, the ultimate mother’s day present is spending time with my kids! Although, it wouldn’t hurt my feelings a bit if they surprised me with a Whimsy ring on my breakfast in bed tray one year!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    Perfect for Mother’s Day is an in-person visit. That’s what we did for my mom.

    A perfect Mother’s day gift for me is spending time with my family. Every year we get my Mom and Mother-in-law their favorite flowers.
