The further I get into this whole motherhood thing, the more I realize how crucial it is for mothers to support one another. There have been many occasions when someone’s small act of kindness toward me has made a tough day of mothering feel just a little bit better. These Spirit Cards are for just that: helping another mom get through one of those days where everything feels hard.
Here’s how to do it:
- Click the download button above and save to your computer.
- Print on 50-60 lb cardstock (for a home printer) or 70-80 lb. cardstock at a printing shop like Staples or Kinkos. Cut out on the dotted lines.
- Distribute however/wherever you think they will best reach another mom. Suggestions: in the diaper aisle at Walmart, on a minivan in the daycare parking lot, with the infant Tylenol on a store shelf, tucked in a diaper bag at playgroup…wherever it will help brighten someone else’s day! There are 7 different sayings and 1 blank card for writing in your own encouragements. Get creative with it!
- Use the #onemothertoanother hashtag to share on social media with a picture of where you left your card. Some of them will be featured on the site/Facebook page!
If you would prefer to order them in bulk from Vista Print, please check back on February 24 for ordering information.
