My mom doesn't live near me, so I didn't get to spend time with her, but my brother and I will be visiting in 2 weeks so she'll get extra special attention then. My brother that does live near her, had her over for lunch and it sounds like she had a good time. Whew! I worry about her. It must be tough to hear about other moms and their special days and then having your grown up kids live in different cities and not get anything special; oh I did mail her some stuff earlier, but it's not the same as being there.
Wishing all you mothers and 'others' a wonderful day.
