2 weeks ago I was asked by Uberkate if I would like to host a giveaway on my blog for a personalised necklace for Mother’s Day. Of course I said yes.
I hadn’t thought much about what response I would receive. All you had to do to enter was leave a comment on that blog post. I didn’t have any requirements.
But I soon realised people told me WHY they wanted to win that necklace for Mother’s Day. Hundreds of comments came flying in. I was moved and touched. People’s stories gave me goosebumps.
Mothers wrote why they should win it for themselves. Husbands left comments about their wives. Teenagers wrote about their Mum’s. Mum’s wrote about their neighbours. Each person was deserving and each Mother should be celebrated. How could I possibly give just 1 necklace away? …
I think Mother’s Day should be celebrated with more enthusiasm and more passion. It doesn’t need to be about elaborate gifts. It could be chocolates, a card, a coffee or a simple phone call to say hello.
This time of the year can also stir up a lot of emotions for people who are not close to their mother, who have recently lost theirs, or for Mums yet-to-be. I am thinking of you at this time…
For MY Mother’s Day, I don’t want elaborate gifts. I just want everyone to be nice and calm in this house! I feel very blessed to have these little people here with me.
I’ll be telling my own Mum how much I appreciate her.
If you know of a great Mum make sure you let her know this Sunday.
Happy Mother’s Day! X
