Happy Mother’s Day!

Sunday, May 8th, 2011

Mother’s Day is such a special day of the year. While we should all appreciate our mothers every day, Mother’s Day gives us an occasion to honor them and really express our thoughts to them. It’s a day to make them feel special, show how much we appreciate them, and let our hearts be full of love.

I want to take this moment to wish a very special Mother’s Day to my mom. She gave up so much to give my sister and me a good life, and my parents did everything they could to make sure we grew up with good values, a good education, and all of the chances that we might not have had in Vietnam. My mom taught me so many things in life, but mostly how to be a loving, generous person. I am thankful to have her in my life and want to say “I love you!” to her.

Do whatever you can to tell your mom what she means to you today. If you can’t be with her, call her or send a message. It’s all about expressing our love for our moms today!

To my friends who are mothers – some even experiencing their very first Mother’s Day – you are awesome women! You sacrifice and give 100% every single day to raising your children, and it’s the most unselfish thing a woman can do. I love and respect you all!

For those who are having a tough time today, because they’ve lost their mothers or have experienced something else in their lives that makes today a tough day, my thoughts are with you, too.

Enjoy this day with your mother, or treat yourself to something wonderful. Happy Mother’s Day!
