"Since my daughter was about six, she has treated me to a yearly spa day. First she gives me a warm-water foot soak, followed by a foot rub. Sometimes there’s a back and neck massage. And there’s always chocolate."
"I made my mom a recipe book containing my family’s signature dishes and decorated the pages with old photos of her and other relatives."
"In one of my favorite childhood books, I wrote brief inscriptions on each page about things that my mom and I used to do together, like reading and watching movies, along with the little things she does now that I think are great."
