Hallmark Canada Mother's Day Patina Vie Umbrella

Dear Mom,

Throughout my entire life, I have been blessed to have you as a mother; one who works extremely hard, who gives of herself endlessly, who never hesitates to help whenever she can and one who is always there to lend a listening ear. Moving away from home was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do because it meant that I couldn't be near you, to be there for you in the moment and to show you each day how much I love you and appreciate you. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and wish that I could shower you with hugs and kisses. This Mother's Day, I want you to know that I am, and forever will be, grateful for your unwavering love and support, for your morning chats over the phone, for the fondest of memories and for helping me to grow into the woman I am today.

Thank you, Mom!

Hallmark Canada Mother's Day Paper Wonder Card

I'd also like to thank Hallmark Canada for managing to capture those special thoughts we want to share with our moms with beautifully crafted greeting cards, stunning gift bags and sentimental gift ideas. While the weeks leading up to Mother's Day is often the time when we find the most gorgeous cards and gifts for moms, I think it would be great to surprise mom with a little thank you note on a non-holiday. Why wait a whole year, am I right?

Hallmark Canada Mother's Day Paper Wonder Cards and Gift Bags

What I love most about Hallmark cards is that they are a gift in and of themselves. My mother treasures each and every one of them, especially the Paper Wonder pop-up cards. And they last longer than flowers!

  1. One of my favorite memories with my mom was when we used to have our giant slumber parties. We would pull out all the mattresses in the entire house and put them in the living room. We would watch movies until we fell asleep.

  4. One memory that I will definitely pass on to my child is reading before going to sleep. Some nights we would read quite a few books, others just one. My mother always read with great expressions, I love seeing her read to my son now.

  10. I lost my mom 30+ years ago, but I admired her open door policy towards our friends. Our meal table was always welcome for an extra guest. On Sunday suppers, she always said "I'm peeling extra potatoes, but I know I will be feeding extra."

  23. She always gave her time for her children, even by getting up at 4 am on Saturday morning to take her son to hockey. I didn't understand until I was older that after working a long week, she must have really wanted to sleep in that day. But she didn't complain.
