This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Pampers at Sam’s Club. The opinions and text are all mine
I look at a card, and then I put it down. A choice, a different direction is where I am taking Mother’s Day this year. The person I always can rely on to be by my side, to align with my goals is my mom. Quickly setting the card back into the card file, I am stricken with a thought. The card will not work.
Mother’s Day is a year-round celebration and not just a day, nor just a card, it is a lifetime of a gift, not to be tabled by a one-day celebration.
I mean there are so many reasons to celebrate beyond a single day celebration, aren’t there? Sometimes the hardest thing about life is making time to really cherish what is real and right in front of us. One thing I have learned is to take nothing for granted.
Lavishly live life out loud and celebrate Mom beyond a single day because she has celebrated you her whole life. We celebrate life every day and this is why Mother’s Day is a year-round celebration.
Why Mother’s Day Is A Year-Round Celebration
Standing on a soapbox I am literally entranced by my thoughts and compelled to reach all of you. Our worlds all start with birth and our mom’s arms. God has blessed me with an amazing mother and my friends all concur.
My mom is everything to me: mom, sister, friend, role model, confidante, teacher, and an angel, so one day just will not work.
From arms that are always open when I needed a hug to a front door that welcomes me no matter the day, the time, hour or problem. Unconditional, wholesome love, every day, all the time. And now you are starting to understand why Mother’s Day is a year-round celebration, not a one-day souvenir.
So To My Mom…..
The True Measure Of Love Is TO Love Without Measure
I look back at days gone by, and years that have passed and I know that I can always rely on you. It’s a phone call, a text, a drive over whenever I want, knowing solace and retreat is within your arms.
You’re Not Social Media ~ But You Got My Likes!
You are not Instagram or Facebook, you are a person, not a thing. But, shamelessly, do you know that since the moment we first me, Mom, I have been your best friend, your number one follower. Where would I ever be without you?
The World Is Tough, But You Are Tougher
Being a super mom cannot be easy because, in fact, it is a full-time job. Your life has centered around this job 24 hours a day 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Always there for me no matter how many strikes the world has against me.
Rather than letting negativity build, you bash it down with heartfelt talks and lovely glasses of Merlot. Cheering away the bad and opening a path for more good. Even on those days that I can’t see beyond my own nose.
Inspirational words and honest revelations (that peanut butter tastes great with chocolate, lol) are all part of your toughness. Heartwarming journeys through your past deliver me to the present.
Spin Doctor Mom
I believe, mom, you are a true spin master without even knowing what that is. After all ‘my age’ speaks in different terms. See, your words inspire and those words are power charged with strength and love which has guided me and given me wings to fly!
By taking away the words and spinning them at me differently, eventually, I see the light. In many cases, I am able to look at what I thought was happening and the true reality of the words, because you, Spin Doctor Mom cleared my cloudy vision up.
In fact, you might even say you are a guardrail. The piece that comes between me and the world’s edge. When life has its way with me, you instill confidence and bring about a different direction so I don’t fail.
I know you are a sounding board. I am sure being a super mom cannot be easy because when I am down, you wait. Listening, and then providing words of wisdom to step me out of harm’s way.
Mother’s Day is not just about being a mom, it’s about being “grand” with grandkids. Smiles that evoke because of your loving nature. It’s infectious because the love moves to everyone in the family. One smile from you and it passes on.
It’s about playing peek-a-boo around a tree and seeing the sun and stars in our kids’ faces. Or the more simples pleasures of just bringing out a smile because you love your family so much.

Now, do you understand why Mother’s Day is a year-round celebration? My mom never has limits, on love or kind words, so why should a holiday-bound the celebration. Instead, use Mother’s Day as the starting point of each year.
I love you MOM with all of my heart ~ DANA XO
