Dear Mom —

If you’ve been with us over the last few months, you know that we’ve been focusing on our Letter Writing practice. (We have a link at the bottom of this post if you’d like to download the FREE guide!) It’s a practice that we continue to cultivate with intention and grace. Intention both in the words we write and in the mindset we have when we sit down to write. Grace for ourselves when we don’t write as often as we’d like to or thought we would.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we wanted to share some letter writing prompts that may help you put pen to paper for this special holiday (although, we all know celebrating moms shouldn’t be limited to just one day of the year!). Gifts, presents, flowers, etc. are all wonderful, but if we’re honest, those handwritten notes are usually what we hang on to over everything else as the years go by. I have several shoeboxes tucked full on notes, letters, and postcards and just opening one every once in a while brings me so much joy. Whether you’ll be able to celebrate with your mother in a few weeks or not, a thoughtful, handwritten letter will allow you and her to feel connected — and that’s what it is all about, friends!

We realize not everyone has a mom they can write to or perhaps your relationship with your mom is strained. This list can work just as well for a friend who has recently become a new mother, grandmothers and godmothers, mother-in-laws, or anyone who has served as a motherly figure and inspiration to you!

Finally, we’ll leave you with a quote from a special letterpress print we created last year for Mother’s Day. Regardless of your circumstances, nothing can take away the special bond that exists between you and your mother. Let’s all celebrate that love affirming truth each and everyday.

 

“I will always be your child. You will always be my mother. Forever and Always.”

— Megan Fowler, Brown Parcel Press founder
