The "mother" of Mother's Day intended "a day of sentiment, not profit." Mother's Day is a time to think about the legacies – personal and societal – mothers and grandmothers pass on.
Mother's Day is your opportunity to take a moment and let your mom know just how much you appreciate her. Being a mother isn't easy, and having a daughter or son take a moment to share some honest thoughts and feelings can be the best gift of all.
Here's a general Happy Mother's Day certificate (in color or black-and-white) you can use for a mother or grandmother, or as part of an intergenerational program.
It can be given by either a child or an adult.
Most people don't know the things you really value about them or what you think is most important about your relationship. It means a lot when you take the time to share some of your personal thoughts, and that's exactly what this certificate helps you to do. You fill in the blank after, "I appreciate you because..."
Included on the certificate is a quote from John Sterling, an English writer and poet: "It was from you that I first learned to think, to feel, to imagine, to believe."
