(Inside: Happy Mother’s Day. Read these words and really feel what an amazing mom you are and how you make the world a way better place.)
You are a mom.
You give every day. You put others’ needs before your own. You love deeply. You teach. You referee. You mentor. You are creative, resourceful, and strong. You freely give grace. There is no one else in your family’s life like you. Your importance is unique. Your influence impactful. You are a safe place. Your hugs heal. Your words encourage. Your support gives confidence. Your wisdom gives guidance. The impact your love has on your family is immeasurable. You shape the next generation and little by little, help change the world.
Today…no matter what stage of motherhood you are in (small children to adult children), I hope you know how loved and cherished and important you are.
Today…I hope you soak in the celebration of YOU.
Because moms are a gift.
And moms make the world a better place.
Happy Mother’s Day
Moms, if your kids are Mother’s Day shopping for you, consider introducing them to this chore chart.
One of the things I want the most for any holiday is a clean house.
Meaning, a clean house that I didn’t have to scrub myself.
An inexpensive, wonderful Mother’s Day gift for any mom is a cleaning chore chart. The kids write a sweet card and then lead their mom to the fridge where they’ll see this chore chart. Wouldn’t a firm promise that the family will help keep the house clean (without nagging) be amazing? Parents everywhere would swoon.
