 Twelve-year old Kayla M. was trying to think of a present for her mom. .She loved her mom so much that she decided to express her feelings for her mom within a present that would blow her mom’s heart away. She just wanted her mom to have a great present to show how much she is desired.”Geez, Mothers Day is just one day away, what should I give to my mom? Mothers day should be a moment to cherish with my mom.  She then decided to double team with her father to buy orchids and then have a hearty breakfast.”Maybe I could also do all the chores she does around the house, hey dad lets go buy the orchids.”, said Kayla. Later on they had a big bouquet of flowers for Kayla’s mother.”I really hope that she will like my present to her.”, Kayla worried as she put the flowers in a vase with water and hid it in her room. Kayla went to sleep with a sweat, What if she hates the present because it was just so…last-minute thought of…, she worried almost all night but then she went to sleep. A bright light soon woke up Kayla, it was morning, AKA Mothers day, Well, here goes nothing. Kayla grabbed the bouquet of flowers and the card she bought and headed to her mother’s bedroom. She noticed through the crack the door left open that her mother was up reading.”Happy Mother’s Day mom! I hope you enjoy my presents!”, Kayla said cheerfully.”Oh how lovely, thank you dear.”, replied her mom.”How about we go out togeth-”, her mom started, but then Kayla interrupted. ”I was going to do all the chores you do around the house, to show how much I love your hard work. That’s exactly what she did, she was hoping her mother would enjoy all her hard work. Mrs. M. did enjoy Kayla’s devotion to her mom, but what she really wanted to do was to spend time with her daughter. She couldn’t do that when Kayla was focused on all the chores.”So mom, what else do you want me to do.”Well Kayla, I really do appreciate all your effort on pleasing me for Mother’s  Day, but all I really want to do was to spend sometime with you.” Kayla felt like she completely wasted most of Mothers Day, she felt so ashamed of herself, her mother must have seen the look on her face because right then she said,”It’s okay, we can still go watch a movie or go to the mall!”, Kayla knew she had the best mom ever.”Wow! If this is what Mother’s Day is like…I can’t wait for my birthday
