When our inbox at Nurtured first began filling up for Mother’s Day entries, I noticed key words crossing my screen time and time again. Those words were lovely, inspiring words praising the women who were being nominated. It brightened my week to read those words and place them into our store ballot! We were rather enthused to make the draw this morning.
Here’s a little sprinkling from the entries that came through by email. If you ever need words to express the wonderful attributes of a mother, feel free to mix these up and pull one out from a hat!
Most of our entries came through as follows:
I am nominating my:
wife, sister, daughter, sister-in-law, mother, friend, colleague, neighbor
for your Mother’s Day contest. She is:
amazing, lovely, patient, gentle, understanding, fun, playful, wonderful, inspiring, devoted, giving, fount of wisdom, glowing, strong, intelligent, quirky, brave, humorous, graceful, deserving, good, selfless, genuine, listening, supportive, researching, generous, and the very best, raddest hero of a mom!
She is (a):
new, first time mother, expecting, foster mom, newly post-partum, single mom, mom of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 boy(s)/girl(s) who works hard, stays at home, cloth-diapers, attachment-parents, had a high-risk pregnancy, keeps an even keel during the roughest ‘phases’, is my best friend, is carrying my baby, challenges my conventions, is making hard choices, using eco-safe, ethically sourced products, handles challenging situations with love, is an example, finds her kids the best locally grown and organic foods, has been a great support to me, navigating sleep deprivation, expects nothing in return, delivers food and supplies to other moms, has inspired me, strives to give all of herself and more!
I just don’t know how I could have done it without her!
Happy Mother’s Day!
