    Join your mother for her favourite weekly activity. Begin your mother's birthday celebration by attending church, her community activity or even her exercise group with her. Doing so is one way you can brighten her week by being present in her life and doing things of interest to her.

  2. 2

    Take your mother out to breakfast, lunch or dinner during the week of her birthday. Allow her to choose her favourite restaurant or take her to a new place. Or, if she prefers to stay home, cook a special birthday meal for her.
