As another Mother’s Day rolls around next week it’s time for all of us to take a moment to appreciate those in our life who care for us. Whether that means buying them a present, making them breakfast in bed, or just printing off a silly card, take the time to show you care. My mother and I have a funny relationship, as most mothers and daughters do I’m sure. One moment we’re ready to strangle each other, and the next we’re laughing. So, I usually like to give a card that shows I am thankful, while adding a little comedy and a reminder that neither of us are perfect. So, I made a few card designs that do just that.
On a more sombre note, recently a wonderful lady that I work with passed away at only 44 years old, leaving behind a ten-year-old daughter. It pains me to think of what her daughter is facing this Mother’s Day, and it makes me that much more grateful that my mother is here to share the day with me. I’ve had many people die around me in the past few years, but something about this most recent loss has touched me, and made me realize how short life really is. Though it sounds a little silly, I’m trying to live each day a little fuller, and a little more grateful, in her honour. So, regardless of what’s going on this Mother’s Day, take the time to show you care. Heck, you don’t even have to wait until then – do it right now – because you never know what might happen before then.
Below are some folded versions of the cards that you can print off! If you want to send them electronically, feel free to just crop the white half off! Enjoy!
