We have many influences of amazing women in our lives. For a lot of us the first influence is that of our mom. At the age of 19, a year after she and my dad were married, I entered this world and made my mom a mom.  To say she has had an influence on me would be an understatement. This lady right here is the most selfless person you'll meet. We were so blessed to have her stay home with us, she coached our teams, helped at our schools, taught us the importance of the gospel both through word and action, she cheered us on in all aspects of our lives and gave us her unconditional love. What is great about Mother's Day is it is an opportunity to share with the women in our lives the gratitude we have for the influences they have had on us.


Below are some ways we can show this love and appreciation to those who often give so much of themselves never expecting anything in return, and they do so selflessly and quietly.


One of the most specially things I have received was a card from my husband sharing with me the many reasons why he loves me. Even thinking about this card bring tears to my eyes. Expressing our to sincere thoughts and feelings written in a card can be an amazing keepsake. You know women we love the gushy stuff.
