Mother's day is next week (May 12th!), so I thought I would talk a little bit about mothers. I think that there is no other special bond like the one that you share with your mother. A mother is a teacher, provider, caregiver, and supporter...she is a best friend, shopping partner, advice giver, but above all, a role model.
I don't know what I would do without my mom. She is a constant support for me in everything that I do and she is always there to listen. We always have the best talks, the best laughs (and sometimes much needed cries), and the best times together. She is my rock, she is my inspiration, she is my hero. She inspires me to be stronger, to believe in myself, to strive through even when things seem tough. She makes me want to be the best that I can be. I love my mom.
I recently came across this video by Almay featuring the powerful mother-daughter duo Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn. They are both such amazing actresses, strong supporters of many humanitarian causes, and just all-around seemingly very humble people. And of course, they are both stunningly beautiful.
One thing that caught my attention regarding the video was the message that they conveyed about mother/daughter bonds being special. That is exactly how I feel. I definitely felt the connection and love between the two when they were telling their stories and talking about one another. A mother-daughter bond is a special gift, and definitely one that I cherish and hope to sustain between my mommy and I forever.
Almay is also holding a contest to win a trip to NYC. Check out their site for more info.
I definitely recommend watching the video...it truly captures the essence and beauty that is a bond between mother and daughter. Of course, one should appreciate and love their mothers everyday, but here's to all the amazing, hard-working and loving mothers around the world. Happy Mother's Day!
*I love you mommy
