As you may know, my mom has had a rough couple of years. As if dealing with cancer in the middle of a pandemic and being quarantined away from her family and newborn grandson wasn’t bad enough, that ordeal has been just the latest in a long list of stress and heartache that she’s had to fight through. She’s had multiple major surgeries, multiple cancer scares, deaths in her family, and the list goes on. It’s been hard, to say the least.
And now I need your help to lift her spirits.
I want to show her how many people care about her and are thinking of her. I’m hoping to collect messages (text, video, or audio) from friends, her old coworkers, her former students, friends of her kids, etc. Anybody and everybody is welcome to send her some love!
A video is the preferred method, but it’s entirely okay if you’d rather send a written or audio message.
Some ideas for what you could say:
- A short and sweet “Thinking of you” message
- Wish her a happy Mother’s Day
- Tell her a story about how she impacted you as your teacher or friend
- Anything else that will make her smile!
If you’re submitting a video or audio message, it can be anywhere from 5 seconds long to 5 minutes long. Anything will work!
This is intended to be a Mother’s Day surprise, so I’d love to have all messages submitted by Friday, May 8th.
All of you need to do is use the form below to submit your written message or upload your video/audio message.
