Your mom might call you more often than you think is necessary, but forgive her and let her call you as much as she wants because she is your mother. After you give her these audiobooks as gifts, you’ll be expecting her call. You’ll welcome it! This phone call will represent the cementing of your hand print in the highly sought after position of favorite child. (This will work even if you’re an only child. You’ll be the favorite because you did something nice, not just by default). Giving audiobooks shows that you put some thought into what your mom might like. Key word: THOUGHT. That’s all a mom wants, right? To be thought of by her kids? So gifting her with Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake which is Anna Quindlen’s smart memoir about growing older and being happy about it is the perfect start. Wife 22, The Beginner’s Goodbye and The Unlikely Pilgrimmage of Harold Fry are all heart-warming stories about relationships, and The Inn at Rose Harbor by Debbie Macomber is the perfect addition to your mother’s bedside table.
Doesn’t it feel great to know you’re a good child?
