For this Mother's Day, we at Live Happy are sharing why we are grateful for our moms. Read on to learn what our happiness heroes mean to us and how they inspire us on a daily basis.
"Momma, I am oh, so grateful for everything you taught me, for the amazing friend you are today and the grandmother you are to my kids. You taught me to look on the bright side, that I control my reactions and mood, to treat everyone equally and to love with a whole heart. I love you."
—Laura Coppedge, Senior Director, Marketing & Operations
"Mom, you have always been my hero. Growing up you taught me it’s OK to make mistakes in life as long as you don’t let them define you (and to always wash my face before bed, no matter how tired I am). You are the strongest, most-kindhearted person I know. I love you forever. Happy Mother’s Day!"
—Casey Johnson, Digital Marketing Coordinator
"Mom, you taught me how to be strong and independent and above all else to trust in the Lord. You embody everything that it means to be a caring and loving individual, and I can only hope to be half the mother that you are to me. I don’t think you can begin to truly understand how much I appreciate, respect, and look up to you. I love you to the moon and back; Happy Mother’s Day!"
—Britney Chan, Marketing Projects and Events Manager
"To my mom who taught me to get the best out of life. Live, love and fail but get up, lick your wounds and move on. Who also taught me love has no boundaries or borders, to pursue my dreams and travel the world. Who has relentlessly visited me in eight cities in five countries on two continents and is still to this date my biggest hero and role model. Love you, Happy Mother’s Day!"
—Bonnie Olesen, Senior Manager, Products & Digital Marketing
"Mom, you taught me how to look for and appreciate all the beauty in the world—from the tiniest flowers, birds and even blades of grass to the biggest things, like a happy home and love you can count on forever. Happy Mother’s Day!"
—Donna Stokes, Executive Editor
"Mom, you are my daily source of inspiration. I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for all the guidance and love that you’ve given me. As I continue to grow, I will always try to make you proud in everything that I do. I love you with all my heart. Happy Mother’s Day!"
—Shane Lee, Web and Communications Coordinator
"Mom, thank you for everything you have provided me in life and showing me all that I can accomplish with hard work. You have always believed in me and I am grateful for the support. I can only hope that your granddaughters will grow up to be strong like you. I love you and I hope you have a great Mother’s Day."
—Chris Libby, Section Editor
"Mom, you were always there for me to talk to at the end of the day. You were one of the most giving people in the world. We didn’t have that much, but we had everything that mattered. I credit you for telling me I could do anything I put my mind to, and I am grateful for that. I see you in my daughter and in my son. They both are resilient and love life. They like to laugh and truly loved their nana. Thanks, Mom. I think of you every single day."
