I can't spot a single one-dimensional woman for miles. They don't exist. I seriously want to throw a party for all the mothers today because even though mothers have always possessed these layers, women today just seem to own them more. At the party, I'd raise my glass to these ladies and say, "You are my heroes. Thank you for being more than just a mom."

These Five Heroes Worship the Same Person

In the movies, heroes save the world with high-tech gadgets, superhuman strength or daring gunplay. But when Superman goes home and hangs up his cape, sitting there alone in the Fortress of Solitude, who does he idolize? Who is his hero? We meet a lot of heroes every year. Not caped ones, generally, but down-to-earth heroes like Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Dr. James Orbinski, who save lives and change the world with education, medicine and compassion. Still we wonder who these heroes look up to -- Martin Luther King, or Ghandi? Sometimes. But more often the answer is much closer to home.

If you are looking for a mother's day gift that shows you care and does not break the bank, try making your mom a little spa basket. You won't believe how easy it is and your mom will love it. Nothing says special like taking the time to make something just for her.

While My Kids Are Young, Mother's Day is More Like Family Day

I don't need any grand gestures on Mother's Day. Maybe when my kids are older (they're four and two now) they'll help daddy cook me terrible tasting pancakes and make freshly squeezed orange juice with way too much pulp in it. And that will be awesome. For my family, Mother's Day is more like Family Day.

Every Day Is Mother's Day (Unfortunately)

It seems to me that Mother's Day is pretty much every day in the work world, and not in a good way. Hear me out. At home, moms are privileged to receive the time honoured traditional offering of burnt toast and cold coffee from our own junior employees, intended to save mom the trouble of doing this herself. Of course the dichotomy is that more often than not, this causes mom more work.
