We don’t all have moms. But we do all have mother figures, man or woman. Call that person today – that person who nurtured you, who supported you, who loved you even when you were not at your best (hello teen years). Maybe it was an aunt, a teacher, a neighbor, or a family friend. When you’re done with that think about the young one in your life who could use a mother figure, or a child who needs a little extra support right now, and reach out to them, too. Mother’s Day was started for “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world.” Honor that, whoever they are, and aspire to be that for someone else.
We all have one person who has done more for us than anyone in the world. Honor that person today, call them/hug them http://t.co/gFgu10L2tR

This image is suitable for putting on Mom’s Facebook wall, inserting in an email, or you can print on cardstock and write a nice letter on the back. But, if you are lucky enough to have a mom, you better be calling her, no matter how much of a pain in the behind she is. Some of us don’t have a mom, have never had a mom, and some children may never have a mom (despite the woman who birthed them).
This image features a Victorian illustration of a mother with her two young children. It says, “Mother’s Day honors the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world,” on the top. On the bottom it says, “Happy Mother’s Day.” This is a large image, almost a full page wide, so you can do what you want with it, but you may need to resize it smaller.

Every year I struggle with finding a Mother’s Day card for the people who are most special to me. They are not my mother, so that narrows my choices a lot. They made a difference, but they weren’t there for those little childhood challenges like scraped knees that cards like to bring up. One person isn’t even female, which eliminates almost every card ever. So this year I made my own card, which is suitable for whoever that mother figure is in your life.
The front of the card is the same image as above. The inside of the card says, “A mother is one to whom you hurry when you are troubled,” by Emily Dickinson. The card is in a light color that is leaning towards pink, but boys can like pink too, and I think it reflects the soft and fluffy feelings you get when thinking of that extra special person. It’s always good to be fluffy.

Who is that “other” mother in your life? How have they influenced you?
