Celebrate Magical Motherhood Memories with Hallmark (giveaway ends 4/21/13)


Hallmark Signature Collection Mothers Day1

Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Mother’s Day, and Christmas, are both bittersweet for me. My mom passed away 10 years ago shortly after Christmas after being removed from life support. My mother in law passed away due to complications from pancreatic cancer seven months later. It goes without saying that Mother’s Day is not easy for me and my husband. Even though it’s been 10+ years I still miss my mom very much. I lost my dad earlier this year too. 🙁

I truly wish my mom and mother in law were both still alive (and my dad). They passed away when my children were only 3 and 5 1/2 years old. They are teenagers now. My daughter will be Sweet 16 next month. I wish both moms were alive to see how wonderful my children, their grandchildren, are.

It breaks my heart that my children have very little memories of their grandmothers. My son was 2 1/2 when my mother got ill and 3 when she passed away. He has next to no memories of her. My daughter only has a few. Both kids can barely remember what either grandmother looked like except for pictures.

I hope that I can make lasting memories with my children. I also hope and pray that I will have plenty of time on this Earth to make memories with my future grandchildren too.

Being a mom I have so many memories of my children. Good, bad and crazy ones. That is what being a mom is all about.

This year Hallmark would like to help you celebrate magical motherhood memories with products to help celebrate that special person in your life – mom.

For the record I was not compensated for this post, nor did I receive anything to review.

    My mother in law is an amazing woman. She is inspiring. She left her ex-husband who was verbally abusive with the clothes on her back and slept on the floor in an apartment until she could afford furniture.
