How can you thank your mom? Make Her smile!

It feels impossible to ever say thank you enough to our moms for all they do for us. But it never hurts to try.

Why not thank her today with a poem?  Grace Bonney's tweet today about the amazing poet Billy Collins reminded me of my absolute favorite Collins poem called "The Lanyard. " It's about how kids show gratitude to their mothers. Send this video of Collins reading the poem to your mom and it's guaranteed to make her smile (It will probably make you smile too!). 

(there is a brief introduction in this clip--actual poem reading starts 0:21).
