Mother’s Day is a special day where everyone can honor the mother in the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influences that mothers have in people’s lives. And we are inviting you to come into the studio on Thursday, May 4th or Saturday, May 6th for our Crafter’s Choice boards to honor MOM. On March 10th, I, Melissa W., became the proud mother of a US Navy Sailor when my oldest daughter graduated from the Naval Bootcamp. As I watched my baby girl march into the room in her Dress Blues, tears streaming down my face, I realized that I was no longer just a mother, but I had become a Military Mother. I could feel our roles shifting places. For her entire life up until that moment, I had protected her, and when her hand raised to her brow in a salute, she had taken on the role of protector, of me, and of everyone else dear to her, near and far, known and unknown, family and stranger, across this wonderful country. That is a unique feeling. As such, in honor of the mothers of our heroes, we have developed new designs just for the Military Mom. We couldn’t just stop there! We know that Service Member Moms are part of that same special group. So, we also honor you! Happy Mother’s Day to ALL of the Wonderful MOMs!!
