I couldn’t wait to read the newest book from Chicken Soup for the Soul Thanks Mom. I knew it was going to be a great collection of stories on motherhood and I was right. I loved it so much that I have already shared mine with my grandma when I visited her last week. When I call her on the phone, she recaps the stories that she has read. Oftentimes, my grandma will go into one of her own stories about being a mom or about how her mom was when she was a child. This book has brought many recollections of my childhood too. As a child, we don’t realize how important moms are in shaping who we are. As grown ups, especially when we become moms, we start to realize just how much of a role model they were (and are) to us and how they have shaped our lives.
You’ve gotta get your hands on a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul Thanks Mom. It is 101 inspiring stories about moms, kids, and everything that happens in between.
Here is a synopsis from Chicken Soup for the Soul website:
A mother’s job is never done, but in Thanks Mom, she gets the praise she deserves. Children of all ages share their words of gratitude and appreciation in this new collection of stories for moms. Daughters and sons retell tales of love and learning, celebrating moms, their wisdom, and all that they do. These stories of special memories, loving and hard lessons, unforgettable moments, laughter and tears, support and encouragement will bring any mom joy, inspiration, and amusement. Mothers of all ages, whether new moms, experienced moms, or grandmothers, will feel good about the recognition they receive. Expect plenty of celebrity contributors!
This book is a page turner and tear jerker at times. Each chapter tells a new inspirational story about sacrifices, favorite moments, moms to the rescue, gfits from the heart, following in her footsteps, and your mother’s legacy. You’ll hear stories from a kid’s perspective all the way through adulthood on moms. This book is all about how moms are a vital part of our lives and they should be treasured.
