Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching and I find myself reflecting once again on what it means to be a mother and to honour your mother.
I asked my boys what they most appreciated about their Grandmas and, as expected, the answers were a little amusing.
“I love that Grandma always has juice boxes”. When pushed a little further about what quality they most appreciated about their Grandma, they expanded it to say “Grandma is always nice and she has juice boxes. And waffle cones.”
About their Nana, they said the quality that they most love about her is “Chet, Harley, and Buddy”. Those are Nana’s three dogs. When pushed to think a little more deeply they said “She is generous and has rice pudding and chocolate milk. And Chet, Harley, and Buddy.”.
I asked them what they most appreciated about me; and my oldest tried to answer that he doesn’t appreciate that I never buy juice boxes. But then they came up with “You always stick up for us” and I felt good that at least they know I’ll always have their back.
And since “I love how you have juice boxes” doesn’t seem like a great quote for a printable, I figured I’d go way out on a limb here and create some lovely quotes that resonated a little more with me and my personal appreciation for my Mom and Mother-in-Law (MIL for short).
I’ve been blessed in my life to have been raised by a strong, creative, and loving Mother who did everything to support me and make me believe in, not only myself, but in my ability to accomplish anything that I set my mind to. And later in life entered another strong, intelligent, and capable woman who has always supported my husband and I’s ventures with enthusiasm and love.
So I felt that the two quotes I selected to share with you today in these free Mother’s Day Printables sum up the love and appreciation that my husband and I both have for our own Mothers; and that, I know, deep down the boys have for their Grandmas and for their own Mom, as well.
I hope one of the designs I created resonates for you, as well.
I made these available in both 5×7 and 8×10 sizes! And in green, blue, and pink colours.
“Mother’s hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.”
“To the world you are a mother but to your family you are the world.”
“Happy Mother’s Day”
