Don't panic! It's not too late to send Mother's Day eCards.

We all know that feeling of a weekend or occasion sneaking up on us ! Ugh. Those of us who are into making family memories meaningful are especially distressed when something of family importance "falls through the cracks!"

Well, it’s not too late to send a free eCard to your mother, mother-in-law, grandmother or someone who is “like a mother” to you. I use eCards all the time now. They can be scheduled ahead (when you ARE thinking about it), or they can be sent at a moment's notice.

So warm your loved one's heart with an eCard from Smilebox. My friends sent me Smilebox greetings at Christmas time. They were among my favorite things I received online. I signed up right away. Smilebox eCards, indeed, create smiles and warm hearts. You have to see them to believe them.

You may want to send one, in addition to other thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts or cards--whatever you choose. Click on the little smilebox in the right column of my blog (under my Examiner badge) to visit the site, and create amazing greetings with your photos and videos with music. Email them free.

Have an enjoyable Sunday, everyone.
