My mom is pretty amazing. We had a close relationship growing up but it was after I became a mother myself 17 and a half years ago that my love and respect for her quadrupled.
I may be a seasoned mom now, but I’ll always be a daughter…and I will always look to my mom for advice and support because I still have so much to learn!
I struggle each Mother’s Day to know how to say thank you and I love you best. I am horrible about remembering to mail a card and we’re too far away from each other to be able to head out for a Mother’s Day lunch together.
This year, I’m saying I love you with a Moem.
What is a #Moem?
A “Moem” is a poem (preferably rhyming) written to pay tribute to moms and grandmas and women who have influenced us as we celebrate Mother’s Day…and then posted on social channels in 135 characters or less.
Here are a couple examples (probably better than mine!):
Of all the special joys in life, the big ones and the small. Spending today with my Mom, is the greatest of them all. #moem
I forget around this time, almost every year, I owe it to her to say thank you, to my beautiful Mother dear. #moem
Not poetic? No worries!
The Moem Maker www.moemmaker.com can get you started. They have a bunch of beginnings that you can choose from, then they’ve got suggested rhyming words to get your poetic juices flowing.
When your moem is ready, share your tribute to Mom on social media (Facebook or Twitter) with the hashtag #moem.
Mother's Day Dress for Success #moem
For every #moem written and shared with the hashtag this Mother’s Day, MetLife will donate $10 toward Dress for Success Worldwide – with a goal of $50,000.
Dress for Success helps low-income women achieve economic independence for themselves and their families through supporting their search for professional employment. Hurry, though – while you can create a #Moem anytime, the Dress for Success Mother's Day donation ends at Midnight on Mother's Day.
What would you say in your Mother’s Day tribute to your mom?
Are you ready for the challenge? Use the Moem Maker to make a Moem and then share it on your social channels. Feel free to tag me (@1momof5) so that I can read your Moem, too! Remember – each tribute shared by the end of Mother’s Day will result in a $10 donation to make a better life for women in need. It’s like two Mother’s Day gifts in one.
