I love being a mother. But I admit that Mother’s Day has been a difficult holiday for me. For years my husband and I have struggled with infertility. Thanks to the miracles of adoption and modern medicine, I have three beautiful, amazing children. But the years before I had kids was rough, especially on Mother’s Day. In fact, if I hadn’t had responsibilities at church on Mother’s Day, I’m pretty sure I would have stayed home all day, curled up on the couch, binging on chocolate. (As it turns out, I did that anyway, I just did it after church. ☺)
Now that I am a mother, I still struggle with Mother’s Day. My heart breaks for all the dear women in my life who haven’t had the chance to have children yet. I also feel sadness for all those who hear the praises of great mothers on Mother’s Day, but don’t have a mother in their life that they can look up to or turn to in times of need.
So rather than thinking of Mother’s Day as a celebration of mothers, I like to think of it as a celebration of women. We all know amazing, kind, loyal, and generous women who deserve recognition on Mother’s Day, whether they are mothers or not. I have a sister and a sister-in-law who don’t have children of their own, but have blessed my children’s lives in ways that are too numerous to list. There are also teachers, neighbors, and friends, who have reached out to us and touched our lives in small but significant ways. I am so grateful to all of them.
I intentionally made these Mother’s Day cards in a generic way, so that they can be given or sent to any woman. I hope you can use them for all the mothers and amazing women in your life.
The cards are size A2 (4.25×5.5) and both fit perfectly on letter size paper. I also made a printable envelope template. Just print out the envelope, and follow the directions on the template. (I used my paper cutter and scoring board, as shown below, to make sure my cards and envelopes looked really sharp!)
And if you want a great gift to go with your card, I have a free 8×10 Mother’s Day printable here that looks awesome in a frame.
