My mother, and other influential women in my life, have always taught me to enjoy motherhood. It flies by in no time, so you better take a moment to appreciate it all; doctor's visits, field trips, sports, bruises, laughs, joy, and pain. Find a way to hold onto the memories before they slip through the cracks of your hand. You'll eventually have to let go. I'm beginning to think this is the reason why I just can't get rid of my greeting cards. I need something tangible to keep.
Years ago, my son and I would come up with clever ways to send greetings to our family and friends. The cards for purchase in the store weren't personal enough and didn't always relay the message we were trying to send. We often crafted our own greeting cards using materials around the house. You can never go wrong with a personal touch. We used video too. Even then, I couldn't get him to sit still long enough to capture the message.
Those days are long gone. Never again will I be able to get my tween to sit in front of the camera and say, "Happy Mother's Day" or blow a kiss to the camera. He's just too cool for that. I have discovered new ways of making this special day with personal items like Tiny Prints Mother's Day Cards.
I created 30th birthday invitations using the Tiny Prints site a couple of months ago. I was very impressed with the quality, fast shipping, and options to personalize. I would recommend you visit this site if you're looking for a unique way to say, "Happy Mother's Day". After all, the thought to throw a card so precious in the trash would never cross anyone's mind.
