I had no idea what I was getting into when I became a mom. While it offers the most amazing rewards, motherhood also brings daily challenges. A bajillion obstacles that plant themselves in front of moms when we are trying to raise and love our children. Those obstacles make us stronger mentally and emotionally, and we are celebrating Tough Mothers this Mother’s Day, in today’s sponsored post with Teleflora.
I’m sure you can think of tons of situations you have been through as a mom, that have made you tougher. I know I have.
- The first time I left my kids for more than 24 hours.
- The time I missed my daughter’s dance competition because I was out of town on business.
- My teenage daughter’s first break-up.
- The first time my kids said they hated me.
- Feeling like I’ve failed my son because he’s struggles to read.
Every one of those situations not only broke me, but it also helped me grow. They helped me see that I do the best I can and never intentionally miss things. They helped me see that I can offer motherly advice when the time is right. They helped me see that I am a tough mother because my kids have made me tougher.
This Mother’s Day, Teleflora is celebrating Tough Mothers everywhere and a beautiful way to say your appreciation is with Teleflora’s Butterfly Sunrise Bouquet.
Playful and sweet just like mom, this brilliant bouquet of peach roses, yellow alstroemeria, and lavender chrysanthemums will make every mom’s heart flutter with happiness. This 2-in-1 gift also serves as a darling oversized keepsake mug (FDA-approved and food safe) adorned with dancing watercolor-hued butterflies for long-lasting enjoyment.
All of Teleflora’s bouquets are professionally-arranged and hand-delivered by a local florist rather than arriving in a box or assembled in a warehouse. To me, that personal touch makes it mean even more. A number of their Mother’s Day bouquets come in one-of-a-kind keepsake containers, like the Butterfly Sunrise Bouquet, that mom can use long after the flowers are gone.
