Why wait? Write a love letter to your mom for Mother’s Day!

I wrote a letter to my mother a couple of Mother’s Days ago and I wanted to share her reaction after reading it.  Fortunately for me, she left me a voice message and I can listen to her happy response over and over–especially when I’m feeling a little blue, it picks me up to know how easy it was to make her smile.

Here’s what she said:

Hi, Susan, this is your mom!  I got your letter.  I just picked it up from the post office and I just had to call you and tell you thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  It absolutely made my heart swell so big.  It’s a beautiful, beautiful letter and I’m going to keep it forever and ever and ever!  Oh…  (laughs) It’s just special.  It’s just special!  So… I just wanted to let you know.  You take care.   I love you, love you, love you!  You can tell I’m thrilled.  And that’s it.  I just wanted to tell you thanks, I loved it.  You take care.  Love you very much, Sweetheart.

The ladies of the family hug Mom!

FYI, I followed my own advice in my post on How To Write Your Own Last Goodbye Letter.  I just sat quietly for a time and thought of scenarios in my life where my mother played a key roll.  Before long, I wasn’t staring at a blank page any more–it was filled up with words!

I’m not expecting my mom to depart this world any time soon, but why wait to write a letter?  Share the love for Mother’s Day!  You can tuck it into a greeting card!
