Love is a hug from Mom.

Nothing compares.

If you are a mom, you understand the power of your arms wrapped around your child. If you are not yet a mom, I’m sure you remember how the hugs from a special woman- mom, grandmother, mentor- meant the world to you in a difficult or special moment.

Mom’s hugs represent hope, love, comfort, celebration or sharing in heartache. Without a spoken word, a hug can send a thousand messages of support. Or, a single expression of LOVE.

There is no stronger symbol for LOVE than the hug.

As Mother’s Day approaches, get in the habit of hugging your children multiple times a day, even your 12 year old son who pulls away (I know, I have one!). When you are with her, hug your mom, despite your differences. Be a positive energy in the lives of those you love. Be intentional about giving out hugs and sharing your LOVE!

And, if distance keeps you apart, send that positive energy in a different way…

Mother’s Day will be here soon! Another year of celebrating the women we love and are thankful for: Moms, Step-Moms, Grandmas, Aunts, Special Friends, Mentors and Mother-in-Laws. It’s a symbolic day that causes us to take pause from our busy lives and be grateful. I have a fun, interactive way you can share with her and show her your LOVE!

Join Coach as they launch “Coach Love”, an app to create a Mother’s Day card to share on Facebook or via email. Inspired by the new fragrance and the timeless artwork designed for Coach LOVE by the iconic illustrator Milton Glaser, Coach is asking you to send LOVE declarations to their mothers, grandmothers and children by filling in the blank [I LOVE____].

Like the image of my mom and I at the top of this post, you can customize your card with your own picture and expression. Characters are limited to 28, so keep it short and sweet. There are also gorgeous Coach pictures you can use if you don’t want to upload a picture. Once you have created the card, you have the option to email it, post it on Facebook or share it on other social media channels.
