This past month has been full of emotions. Just a week ago, I watched my daughter marry her sweetheart. It was a wonderful experience, and definitely one of the highlights of being a mom so far. But perhaps even more special than that moment for me was the chance that I had to spend two weeks with my now-adult daughter and my mom.
I remember how my relationship with my mom changed after I got married. The change was unexpected for me, and I love looking back now and seeing how our relationship evolved from parent-child to close friends.
I’m convinced that there is an aspect of the parent-child relationship that blooms after the marriage of the child. I can’t wait to see how my relationship with my oldest evolves now that she is married.
Does every woman feel like they can never measure up to their own mom? Being a mom is a tough job, and I don’t know if kids will ever appreciate everything their moms do for them until years later. I always appreciated my mom, but when I became a mother myself I understood all that went in to being a mom.
I wanted to do something special for my mom this Mother’s Day, since she helped and supported me so much this past month as I got ready for Kim’s wedding.
Going to the Hallmark store and browsing their selection of Mother’s Day cards is one of my favorite things. I laugh and then I get teary and I find lots of cards that I like….and then when I find the perfect card, the one that was written for US, I always know it instantly. This is the card that spoke to me this year:
“There was a time when I thought of you as just my mom, but eventually I started to realize that you’re not only a good parent, you’re a really good person, too….”
The card and the sentiment it holds pairs perfectly with the Tree of Life Necklace from Hallmark Jewelry. It’s a gorgeous piece of jewelry that I would be proud to either wear OR gift to my mom.
About the Tree of Life Necklace:
- Polished sterling silver Tree of Life pendant with sparkling cubic zirconia-studded leaves
- 18″ cable chain with spring-ring clasp
Each piece of Hallmark jewelry comes in custom gift packaging from Hallmark, which includes a box, cloth jewelry pouch and an enclosure card that says “Love begins with family.”
