This weekend we'll celebrate Mother's Day. For many of us, growing up with a loving, caring mother made all the difference - she helped mold us into the people we are today.

Are you frantically calling some 1-800 number for a rush delivery of roses at my reminder of this special day? I see I'm not alone in my forgetfulness.

You'd think that despite all of the Apple iPads, iPhones and other products I own I'd be in front of the rush to get those flowers out without paying a premium for expedited delivery.


Even the reminder from those online flower shops have become so persistent that I've unsubscribed ... and become reminder free.

You know, my work at PhRMA entails a lot of digital advocacy where I'm constantly pushing out information to remind people of important reports, information that will help them live better, healthier lives.

I guess I should personalize the practice by remembering the importance of my mother - the one who gave me life and supported me along the way - and my wife who is a great mother to our three kids.

So as soon as I finish writing this piece, I'm going to the spam folder and looking for the free delivery coupons to get the moms in my life some flowers.
