Before we know it, it is going to be Mother’s Day. Do you know what you are getting for the special Mom’s and Women in your life? I have a couple ideas brewing for the Mom’s in my life…and of course I am planning on sharing here.
Along with a nice gift, I usually like to give a written note in the form of a Mother’s Day Card, which I can express in the written word exactly why I appreciate my Mom and my Mother-In-Law. I think it is important to express how and why we feel the way we do about a person, instead of just assuming that person knows how we feel. You never know what tomorrow will bring.
Just a couple of months ago my mom suffered a pretty serious stroke. She lost physical control of the right side of her body and was taken to the hospital via an ambulance. Her doctors kept her overnight in the hospital for some testing and to wait on her test results before sending her home.
It was quite the shock for me and my family members. if you have had similar experiences, you know what I mean. One day everything is going along like normal and then suddenly everything is different. Luckily my mom has almost made a full recovery, but there is always going to be that worry in the back of our minds. We are so blessed and she is getting good medical care now to try and prevent another stroke from occurring.
My mom is such an amazing woman. I attribute most of my good qualities to her and my dad…and possibly a few of my not so loveable traits too ;)! She is one of the most loving and selfless women I know. She lives her life with Faith and Hope and continues to be an amazing example of courage and happiness to my family and I.
Her recent health scare has been a big reminder to me about the importance of letting our friends and family members know just how much we care about and love them. Don’t wait another day to tell someone how much you care about them. Even if you are estranged from them…reach out to them and tell them.
I was excited to be able to team up with the Cardstore this Mother’s Day and I was able to make a fun and personalized card for my Mom.
It was so easy and is a lot more personal than just picking out a card at the drug store. I was able to add photos and have the card say exactly what I wanted it to say for my Mom. You can even use your personal signature. This way you can totally personalize it to an individual loved one. Cardstore can print, stamp and send your card via US postal service for you. How convenient is that?
Don’t you just love the vintage pictures of my cute Momma? Such a fun keepsake.
And guess what? I have a special promo code just for my Idea Room readers. You can not get this deal online.
