I finally decided that I’m always going to put the apostrophe after the s when writing Mothers’ Day because the day celebrates all mothers everywhere. All opinions on this concept are welcome.
Onto the important things. I sat down to write my Mothers’ Day card this weekend. At first I wasn’t sure where to start, and then I replayed a few recent phone calls that we had and I knew exactly what I wanted to put on my Mothers’ Day card. Not gonna lie, I’m pretty excited about it. And then I put it in an adorable square envelope and covered it in washi tape. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you any more because that would ruin my mother’s surprise.
Now, I’m not an expert in writing Mothers’ Day cards, but I have a few suggestions of where to start if you’re not sure what to write. First, brainstorm recent phone calls, inside jokes, travels you’ve taken, and things that made you think of your mother. Once you’ve done your research, here are 5 suggestions about where to begin your mothers’ day card:
5 Things to Write in a Mothers’ Day Card
- Mention something you’re looking forward to doing with your mother.
- Thank your mother for something she has done for you recently.
- Tell your mother your favorite thing about her.
- Explain to your mother a way that you are like her that you never thought would happen.
- Offer to help out around the house. I don’t think this one gets old no matter how old you are.
So that’s it, five simple suggestions to personalize cards for your mothers. Do you have any other suggestions of where to start?
PS. Don’t forget that Mothers’ Day cards don’t only need to be sent to your mothers. They can be sent to your grandparents, your aunts, your friends who are mothers, anybody who’s ever acted like a mother towards you, and more.
PPS. There’s still plenty of time to make your own Mothers’ Day card by the way. Remember that time I made a Valentine for a kitten in under 5 minutes? Totally do-able.
