This year in the spirit of motherhood, we set forth the challenge of expanding your reach in celebrating not just your own mother, but all of the mothers in your life. Tell all of the mothers who have nurtured your dreams, who love you unconditionally, and see the greatness in you how much you appreciate them.
Every mother in this world deserves to be celebrated. Let’s come together to acknowledge what all of the mothers in our lives do. Let’s take the time to see who they are and the beauty they are adding to this world, through themselves and their children. No matter what the story might be, we are here to celebrate others and show them we see them for the light they bring into our lives. We watch them put themselves aside to tend to those who need them. We see the lack of sleep, the early mornings, the late nights. We see the mothers without borders that go beyond the traditional family tree to be a mother in the lives of those in need. We see that you are the glue that holds us all together. WE SEE YOU.
Now, it is time we share our message with them. In the cards you create, use these guides to help you create the perfect message for your recipient.
- Share what you have learned from her.
- Tell her a funny story from your memories of when you were little.
- If it is a story you need to apologize for, you can apologize now for a little fun!
- What attributes do you share with her? What makes you different?
- Share your favorite memories of her.
- Tell her why you are grateful she is your mother.
We also ask you to think of grandmothers, step-mothers, sisters, friends – anyone you know that should be celebrated as a mother figure. Send them a message to let them know how important they are. Let’s celebrate as many mother figures as we can during the next two weeks. It’s never too late to let someone know how grateful you are that they are part of your life.
