Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and I wish all the moms out there a very happy Mother’s Day. In honor of this day, we asked people in the office to share some memories or thoughts about their mothers.
Our Project Manager Lauren had this to say: “My mother’s strength and perseverance inspires me every day. I am so thankful to have her in my life, and I do not know what I would do without her!” She is featured above with her mother Lisa.
Head Designer, Marlene shared this about her mom: “My mom is very special to me. She is my biggest supporter and is always there for me. Whether it was getting up at 6 am to go to an all day long synchronized swimming meet to coach me and be a judge (she always gave me high scores!), going to Stoneworks Rock Climbing gym to rock climb with me, or attending one of my fashion competitions, she was always there for me cheering me on in all of my crazy activities and endeavors.” Marlene is pictured above with her mother, sister, and niece.
Director of Customer Service, Donna said: “When I think about my mum, childhood memories of summers spent at lake come to mind. We could always count on her to play in the water with all the kids. She was the same way when her grandchildren were young too. Today, she still loves the water but enjoys it more from the deck of a ship!” The picture above is of Donna and her mother on a cruise last year.
Our Creative Director, Jim wanted to share this about his mother: “I’m marking my first ever Mother’s Day without Joan Marie Scelp Starr Cartwright Lauria, a quite unforgettable mom. She was the granddaughter of Italian immigrants (and for a short time, literally married to the mob), an aspiring singer (and proud owner of a Dean Martin autograph), and everybody’s favorite aunt (Aunt Joanie). If you’d met my dad, you’d know hers was the gene pool that turned me into an artist and writer. I only wish my own children had known her better. So here’s to Mom.” His mother is pictured above.
Last but not least, I wanted to share something about my mom also: “I am so grateful to have a mother that has been by my side and supported me in everything I done. It has helped me become the person I am today. I love you mom!” My mother, my sister, and I are pictured above celebrating Mother’s Day last year.
Thanks to everyone who shared about their mothers. Happy Mother’s Day!
