Mothers Day Love Letter – The Best Way to Express Your Gratitude and

Abraham Lincoln said – “All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother”

Wow! That is a worthy compliment to give mom this Mother’s Day!

Mothers are the source of our beginning and are always there for us, whether we realize it or not. Could that be one of the reasons why most of us take our mothers for granted?

We just expect her to be there. We pay little attention to the time of day, her schedule, her health or her state of mind when we need her. We just call on her and she shows up and gives us the warmth and comfort we’re desperately looking for. Fascinating, isn’t it?

Mothers are our first teachers and the biggest compliment a mother can get is when you tell her that she is the guiding light in your life and that you want to be like her.

We always think about sitting down with mom one day and telling her how much we appreciate her and how grateful we are for having her as our mother.

What is it that you’d like to tell mom this Mother’s Day?

That you owe it to her for who you are today?

That you did notice all the things she did for you?

That you’re proud of her for raising you the way she did?

That you’re blessed to have her as your mom?

That you’re her biggest fan and dream about being like her?

However, most of us find it hard to share all these feelings with mom, even if we manage to get some time with her!

There are a few reasons why we struggle to have this intimate conversation with mom.

The biggest one of course is that we will mess it all up and it won’t come out the way it should.

A second reason is that our emotions will get the better of us and we don’t want to look silly crying like a baby in front of mom.

But mom needs to know how you feel about her sooner than later!

G. B. Stern said: “Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone”.

So, what is the solution to your problem?

Write a heartfelt love letter to mom this Mother’s Day and share with her the things you’ve been carrying in your heart for a long time.

Unlike a conversation, you can edit your letter a million times before you give it to mom. You can take your time to write it, think through what you want to say and here’s the best part – you can even sleep on it.

Also, a letter is permanent and will make a lasting impression on mom and is something she can read over and over again.

“But, I’m not good at writing letters!” is your next objection, right?

Follow these 6 simple steps and you will be on your way to writing that heartfelt letter to mom:

1. Relax, It’s a Love Letter to Mom – This love letter is an intimate conversation between you and mom and there are no rules to be abided by. Do not get caught up in getting the letter right and using sophisticated words. Even if you make a mistake, is mom going to notice?

2. Collect Your Thoughts – Take some time to think about what you want to say before you start writing. Go down memory lane and think about your growing up years and how mom was an integral part of that. What is the message you want to get across at this moment in your life?

3. Overcoming Writer’s Block – For most people, the difficulty in letter-writing is the start and the close. You don’t have to write the letter in a linear fashion. Write the part that comes to you first. You can always go back and complete the other sections later.

4. Write From Your Heart – Be yourself and write from your heart. Write your letter as if you were there talking to mom face to face. Tell her how much you love her and appreciate her and why.

5. Acknowledge Mom’s Sacrifices – Let mom know that you’ve noticed the sacrifices she’s made and that you appreciate her for all that she does. Mention one or two events from the past to show her that you really remember. The older the event, the more dramatic the impact it will have on mom.

6. Give Mom the Greatest Compliment Ever – Imitation is the best form of flattery! Tell mom that you’re her biggest fan and that you secretly wish to be like her! Tell her that you have learnt well from her and try to emulate her in many ways in your life. If you’re doing something specific with your kids that will make her proud, mention that in the letter.

A Mother’s Day Love Letter written using the above steps will give mom the satisfaction that money can never buy! This letter of yours is sure to be cherished, saved and read many times over, for many years to come!

A final word of caution – Write only what you really feel in your heart.
