With Mother’s Day just behind us, I have been thinking a lot about my mom and all that she means to me. As well as really celebrating my children and what little miracles they are.
There is a chapter in the Bible, Proverbs 31, that talks about a virtuous woman. Many believe it is a model for how we should be as mothers and as wives. The older I get the more I realize that my mom has been that woman to me. Growing up my mom wanted nothing more than to be mom.
She gave up a lot of her own wants and desires to make sure that she was always there for us. Growing up, I cannot remember a day that I came home from school and she wasn’t there. Through all the good times and the bad my mother was a constant in my life. She always loved me no matter what.
Now that I am grown and have my own children I find myself striving every day to be the kind of mother she was to me. Looking back on my childhood I don’t remember the clothes we wore, the food we ate, the toys we had. I remember my mom, always being there and always loving me.
In celebration of Mother’s Day this year, JOHNSON’S® Baby has established JOHNSON’S® Baby CARES Care Cards, a digital e-card platform encouraging moms to share positive messages of encouragement with other moms across the country, while simultaneously supporting Save the Children®. You can help, too! Simply pick and share a card filled with messages of reassurance for a Mom in your life on Facebook at http://www.johnsonsbabycares.com. For every card sent, shared or liked, JOHNSON’S® Baby will donate $1.00 to Save the Children® (up to $150,000) to benefit early childhood education programs that foster education and reassurance for new moms. These cards will not only spread encouragement to Moms throughout the country but will also provide Moms in need with the skills and knowledge to successfully support their child’s growth.
Johnson & Johnson has come up with a campaign that celebrates the selfless and unconditional caring of caregivers, including moms, and all the ways they care for those they love. As part of this campaign, recognizing their commitment to the health and well-being of moms and kids worldwide, Johnson& Johnson are also planning to donate $25K this Mother’s Day to Save the Children®!
Take a minute and celebrate the mom or caregiver in your life.
