My husband always wrote me letters on Mother’s Day. On pastel colored greeting cards, he’d essentially re-write the message in his own words and pen. Always, he’d champion the places I feared that I faltered. He’d remind me motherhood is a “fall down and get up again” affair and that I was doing the best he’d ever seen. I miss those letters. He understood that all mothers need witnesses and champions. They need people to tell them “You got this” or “I’ll help you when you need.”

This Mother’s Day, take a moment to tell a mother – single, widowed, new or seasoned, ill or well – that she is appreciated, seen and witnessed for her journey. Tell her, “I’ll help you when you need.” It could be the best gift she gets all day.
