- A day completely alone. I know it is hard to imagine that your mother really wants to be alone for a day but I bet it is a gift that she is secretly hoping for. Maybe one that she may not even want to admit to. It is a wonderful thing to have the whole house for yourself, without having to referee any fights or worry about what’s for lunch or dinner.
