Need An Idea For Mother's Day? Write Her Something Special
Updated: Jul 19, 2019
Mother's Day is this weekend. If you're looking for something a little more heartfelt than what you've given mom in previous years, consider writing a special poem or love letter.
What I'm suggesting is far from an out-of-the-box idea. People write heartfelt messages to loved ones all the time for a variety of reasons and special occasions. But while this comes naturally for some of you, others may shy away because they aren't sure the words will come out right when they finally sit down and put pen to paper.
Below is something I wrote my mom years ago for Mother's Day. I don't remember how old I was at the time – maybe high school or college age – but I do remember sitting down and having no clue what to say.
Then it hit me – share a special memory. This may read a little cheesy, and I did find at least one grammatical error (can you spot it?) while reading through it real fast after all these years. But it couldn't have been more perfect – because it was from the heart.
Give this idea a try for your mom this weekend. I promise she will love whatever you write, and you may just learn that you aren't such a bad writer after all.
Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing mothers out there!!
Thanks for reading.
