Moms: They love us, they support us, and most of all — they INSPIRE us.
We received some of the loveliest, most heartwarming stories of inspiring moms for our Mother’s Day facebook contest.
All of your endearing Mother’s Day messages touched our hearts deeply. We feel every mother should be celebrated, not only today, but everyday! And today – everyone’s a winner! We’ll be sending all of the participants a #12 Uplift
mini-rollerball as a token of our appreciation for the inspiration you have given us.
Thank you all for sharing your stories.
Kristi: My mom is the sweetest, most inspiring woman ever. She truly brings the sunshine everywhere she goes. I have no idea what I would do without her constant encouragement, love and wisdom… The travel well trio would have come in handy on her last vacation… 😉
Carolee: My mom has inspired me by showing me that it’s never too late… She joined the national guard at 34 years old, went back to college at 48 and now at 54 she is finishing up her Doctorate! Through it all she’s taken care of my father when he almost died, kept our family strong and instilled the courage in us to never give up, no matter what!
Barbara: My Mom on her (last) birthday in April 2010. She passed away the 26th of December that year (she was very sick with cancer) I miss her every day.
Christina Therese: My mom is the reason I am who I am today! She was my best friend, my biggest fan, and she showed me the meaning of unconditional love. She passed away at 49 years old in 2004 from ovarian cancer and every single day since then has been difficult for me. She is a constant inspiration to me… I strive to be the type of person she would have been proud of.
Gina: I love Essential Oils. And I loved my beautiful Mother.
My mother, passed in July of 2012… I visited her every day… A lot of people would tell me I went to the nursing home too much. My response to them: “if the tables were turned and it was me – she would be there for me.” My mother, even though she is no longer here, continues to inspire me to be always a compassionate human being
And the grand prize winner of a 21 Inspire blend…
Robin: Blood may be thicker than water, but its consistency is irrelevant when it comes to matters of the heart. My mom’s heart is great enough to include those of us to whom blood holds no obligation. Her inner strength and resiliency have seen our family through trials I cannot begin to describe. Her capacity for caring and thoughtfulness humble me. I can only aspire to have a home one day that is as warm and welcoming as hers; she opened her home and her heart to this wandering gypsy and gave me my first taste of roots. I am inspired by her on a daily basis.
To all those inspiring moms out there, Happy Mother’s Day from 21 Drops!
