As Mother’s Day gets closer, I find myself reflecting on the many women in my life that have influenced me for the better. My mom is of course at the top of that list, but there are many, many other women as well. Grandmothers, Aunts, Cousins, Friends, Neighbors, teachers, all of have influenced me to become the woman that I am today. I would like to take a moment and recognize those women in my life.
I recently read this article on Familyshare.com that talks about recognizing all of the influential women in our life especially so close to Mothers Day. I really found it insightful. I really liked where it defines what a mother is. Mothering is far more than just giving birth. It is caring for and nurturing others. You should take a minute to read it. I think it helped me to remember those mothering influences in my life a little better.
Going hand in hand with this article was another article I found that talked about the mother’s influence on society. If you pair the two articles together, it really goes to prove the old saying “it takes a village to raise a child.” Our children are influenced by the example of teachers, neighbors,and friends.
If you want to take a moment to reflect on the women that have influenced you and would like to honor them, familyshare.com has made it really easy to send them a special note and let them know what a difference they have made for you in your life. It is an E-card of sorts and I really like the idea of it. It is called Show Love and is an easy way to let someone who has influenced you know that you love them.
I really want to just thank all of you women reading this. You have all influenced me in my life. I love you and appreciate your caring and support. Thank you for being with me on this blog. Tomorrow, I will return to the normal “crafty post” but couldn’t pass up this opportunity to remember the women in my life. Thank you for all that you have done and will continue to do for me.
