This time of year always get’s me excited. With the onset of spring, warmer weather, sunny days, and more time enjoying the outdoors with my kids, I begin to reflect on how thankful I am to be a mother and how thankful I am for my own mother. I remember my first Mother’s Day….I considered it the year I became pregnant with my son. It was amazing to be carrying a little, sweet life inside of me and from that moment, I knew that I had a purpose in life bigger than myself. Each year on Mother’s Day I enjoy celebrating the special women in my life with a little pampering, homemade gift, and/or something sincere from the heart.
Blissfully Ever After has teamed up with Simon Malls to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a $100 Simon Malls gift card!
Becoming a Mom has made me really appreciate my mom and all of the things she did for me growing up and what she continues to do for me today….and now for my kids. One of my favorite memories of my mom is how she would make our lunches every day (even through my freshman year of high school) and would write notes in them that were encouraging or just to tell me how much she was proud of me and loved me. It was a simple gesture that really meant a lot.
Do you have a special memory about your mother?
What makes you love being a mom?
