The Mother Figure 7-Day Card Writing Challenge: May 5-11, 2024

May 02, 2024

I'm writing to invite you to join me next week for another 7-day card writing challenge.

Mother's Day is a complicated holiday for me, as I know it is for many of you. I still write letters to my mom occasionally but since I can't send her a card in the mail, I'm going to focus this year on the many mother-figures in my life who have been parenting me in large and small ways over the last few years since my mom died. I also plan to write to my mom friends: my peers in this most challenging of unpaid careers who I know can always use an extra vote of confidence.

Perhaps there are people in your life who have mothered you, even if they don't know themselves that way? Are there people you'd like to strengthen your bond with by writing to them unexpectedly? Are there mothers in your world, even if they aren't your own, who you want to recognize for their caregiving?

To entice you to join us, I created this free illustrated tracker you can use to mark your progress. If you submit your completed tracker through this form you can enter to win a free $100 gift card to spend on cards, prints and gifts to keep your correspondence going all year. See below for details!

Thank you for being on this path with me, I'm so grateful for you.
