Around here we celebrate Mother’s daily. We are fortunate to be able to help many women on their journey to motherhood. Mom’s and Moms-to-be should all be appreciated. After all, they give life! Many of us are now Mother’s ourselves. So this year not only are recognizing all the amazing Mother’s out there but we also get to share in the celebration.
This Mother’s Day we decided to write letters to our children. Yes, we all want flowers, candy, a card…something. It just makes you feel recognized. But honestly, our children are more of a gift that we ever imagined.
Here’s a few of our letters. Hope they bring a smile to your face and warm your heart. Happy Mother’s Day.
To my daughters,
My mom always told me “ You will understand when you have a daughter” and boy has this proven to be true. You girls are such an amazing blessing to me and I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to be your mom. Every day the first and last thing I do is thank God for each of you and to help me guide and protect you through the day. You will hold my heart forever and I would give up everything for you. I hope to one day be able to guide you through motherhood the way Nana does for me now. Life will give you happiness, sadness, disappointment and extreme joy and I will be right there for all of it. We will have ups and downs but always know your momma will be with you every step of the way. My love is endless and unconditional and with God’s guidance we will enjoy this life as Mother and Daughter. I love you Alora and Addison with all that I am.

To B &K,
It wasn’t until the day I found out I was expecting that I really knew what my purpose in life was going to be. In honor of Mother’s Day I thought instead of it being about me, I would let you both know why it really is all about you. From day one, the first breath you took, the first time I got to hold you, feel you, smell you, kiss you, you became my life. In one instant all my hopes, joys, and even fears were unleashed. Before I met you two, the word responsibility meant getting to work on time. Now it means guiding, feeding, teaching, protecting these two beautiful children, who are completely dependent on us for everything. The truth is, I’m more than okay with that and I want to do it for the rest of your lives. I hope you know:
- If I could hold your hand through all the scary parts of this thing called life, I would. If I could save you from every fall and swat away every insult, I would. If I could wipe up every tear and take away all your heartbreak and disappointments, I would. And when those times come, I will always be here.
- I’m on your side, no matter what. Even when you’ve done something so stupid, which believe me you will, you can always come to me and I will help you. We will get through it together.
- Be the hero! Unfortunately there are some cruel people in the world. Stand up for what’s right and never be afraid to stand up for someone else! Be brave, be kind, be a light.
- You can do things, Even the hard things. If you fail, try again. Never, ever be afraid to try.
- And last but not least smile, laugh, hug and love! Don’t take life too seriously. Every day wake up and choose to be happy. Your smiles are infectious. Share them with the world.
You’re going to grow up sooner than I’d like. Some days you’ll love me. Some days you won’t (well, you’ll tell me you won’t but I will know better). Some days I’ll cross your mind. Some days I won’t. But years from now, I hope you know that throughout it all, I tried my best, worked my hardest, and loved you with everything I have.
Whether it’s our seasonal “To-do lists” or carrying on Dance Party Fridays on our morning drives to school, all I wish is that one day, you truly understand how I feel about the two of you. Being your mother is my greatest accomplishments and I will forever be grateful to you for giving me that gift.
I love you to the moon and back,
(Sarah Guildbault, Front Office Manager)
Dear K & K,
My love for each of you is something you will never truly comprehend until you have children of your own. How do I know this? Because it is something my mom use to tell me. On this mother’s day I want each of you to know that I love you with all of my heart and soul and everything I have to give and I want to celebrate the both of you. Being your mother is the greatest gift of all and I am honored to be called your mom. I thank God every day for blessing me with two wonderful children and I ask him to watch over and protect each you and for guidance as I go through this crazy thing called parenthood. There will be days that you will question my love and days you are mad at me, but just know no matter what my love will never change.
On this mother’ s day I would also like to thank each of you for the simple things you all do that mean so much to me. Thank you for kicking me throughout the middle of the night and for the very few hours of sleep I get. Thank you for our bath times, but most of all thank you for the little fingers that’s underneath the door trying to get in on the few times we do not bathe together. Thank you for ruining my shirts when you go to lay your head down on my shoulder with your dirty faces. Thank you for spraying me with cold water at the kitchen sink as I try to cook. Thank you for spitting up on me as I rock you to sleep in my arms. Thank you for all the slobbery wet kisses and the best bear hugs ever, and if it ever seems as though I am holding on a little tighter, it’s because I am. I know that one day those hugs and kisses will be few and far between. Thank you for showing me love in a way no one ever has. Thank you for loving me through my flaws and imperfections yet still thinking I am the best mom ever. Thank you for making me smile when I walk through the door after having a bad day. Thank you for making me the happiest person in the world knowing I have you guys to wake up to. Thank you for being my children.
As time continues to fly by there are a few things I want you guys to always remember. First and foremost keep God first in everything you do. Be kind. Be the first to forgive. Respect yourselves and never settle for less than you deserve, which is the best. So on this mother’s day and every day forward just know how much I love you and how proud I am to be your mom.

To my daughter
I could never image how much I could love someone till I had you! You may push my buttons and make me want to pull my hair out… J but I wouldn’t have it any other way. You are such an independent little girl for 2 years old which is incredible however very stressful and exhausting for Mommy! But I hope you keep that trait and become a successful and independent women in whatever you do. It’s astonishing how fast you developed such a spunky and outgoing personality and never miss a moment to make me laugh. It’s also so crazy how little you are and bring so much joy into to so many people life’s. I couldn’t have made a more perfect child if I tried and I am so blessed God decided I could be your mother. I am not perfect but you are the light of my life and make me strive to be a better person. “So much of me is made from what I learned from you, You are with me like a handprint on my heart” -Author Unknown

Mother’s Day is set aside to honor Mothers for what they do and who they are. But, if it wasn’t for you, I would not be part of this holiday. I want you to know that I take pride in being your Mother. I feel blessed and I am very thankful that God chose you to be my child. My spunky, fun loving daughter! I love you with every inch of my heart and with all that is in me. You are blessed beyond measure and will succeed in all that you do and all that you dream of becoming. You make being a mother fun and rewarding. I love you.
(Misty Green, Billing Department)
Dear R & S,
I’ve loved you more than air since the day you were born. I will never stop. I will always hold you. I will always be on your side. I will always have my arms open and ears ready to listen. If you need help, it can be me. If you need love, it can be me. If you need nothing, just company, it can still be me. I’m so proud of you both. You have hearts full of love and giggles full of joy. I pray you will always live by the golden rule. If you will simply love God, love people and serve others, then you have accomplished more than most.
All of my love,
(Tanya Bolton, Marketing Director)
