What a great idea! I lost my Mom at 60 from Leukemia 5 yrs ago when I was only 40 but I have so many great memories of her and things we did together to last me a lifetime. I gave her a homemade coupon book once when I was 12 for hugs, kisses, quiet time, back or foot massage, breakfast in bed, movie of her choice, and a few others. She always appreciated those type of gifts more than the monetary or store bought gifts and I have some wonderful memories of quality time spent with my mom. She never wanted flowers or candy because "flowers die" and she had congestive heart failure since she was 32 so she had to watch what she ate at all times. Anyway thanks for the great idea, I will use it to help my niece and nephew make a jar for my sister for this Mother's day.
