Mother’s Day is coming up and there’s nothing that makes me appreciate my mother more than becoming a mother myself. I developed a true understanding for how much she did and how hard some of the days must of been for her. And sometimes its hard to put that appreciation into words. I searched and scoured and I just couldn’t find a poem that fit exactly the sentiment I was looking for, so I made my own! Check out this Mother’s Day card written and designed by The Social Papery, inspired by my very own mother! Click here to purchase.
There are so many ways to say I love you,
But no words to express what I truly see in you.
All the years you sacrificed, keeping your own desires at bay,
so that you could offer unconditionally to me everyday.
I live each moment by the values you instilled in me,
and reflect on all the ways you’ve given so generously.
I am who I am today because of your encouraging way,
and your ability to always know exactly what to say.
The greatest gift you have given me is always being there,
no matter the ask, and how, or when, or where.
As I look to the future, my only wish is to be,
the kind of thoughtful mother, you are to me.
Happy Mother’s Day!
