Mother’s Day cards can be a big deal, especially if you’re a first-time recipient! I have to say, the first card I ever received was particularly special for more reasons than one. My little girls, who have since grown up quite a bit, were just starting to develop the concept of writing their names. They were still at the stage of learning how to grip the “foreign” object (their pencil) and did not have the whole concept down packed quite yet.
That Mother’s Day we went to our favorite restaurant for brunch. As soon as we sat down, I noticed two identical envelopes neatly placed by side by side on the table. I cautiously peeked into each one, and when I caught a glimpse of a recent family photo on the front, I excitedly yanked the cards out of the envelopes.
On the inside were my daughters very first “signatures” which consisted of a few scribbles, and what appeared to be the beginning shape of a heart. I now had not only one great memory, but two! Photo Mother’s Day cards help me to preserve all those once-in-a- lifetime milestones for years to come.
