#Win A Mother's Day Read (US)

Kara Lawler and Regan Long invite readers to join their tribe of mothers and be encouraged, uplifted and inspired on their parenting journey. A LETTER FOR EVERY MOTHER is the perfect gift for every mother.

In A LETTER FOR EVERY MOTHER, authors Kara Lawler and Regan Long have written a heartwarming compilation of letters addressed to mothers from all walks of life, meant to celebrate, inspire and commiserate with all stages of the parenting journey. This book will encourage, inspire and uplift mothers from all walks of life.

Kara and Regan invite readers to join their tribe of mothers, to learn from one another and band together to face one of the hardest jobs in the world: becoming and being someone's mother. Their mission is to inspire and to create a community through this book to remind mothers that we're all in this together-an especially welcome message in the current atmosphere of competition and anxiety of parenting.

A LETTER FOR EVERY MOTHER is warm, inviting, inclusive-and the tone is inspirational or irreverent, depending on the letter or subject you happen to turn to. After all, motherhood is an oxymoron experience; it is both exhilarating and exhausting, uplifting and demeaning, wonderful but terrible, too.

About the Authors

"HuffPost Parents bloggers, Kara Lawler and Regan Long, have written a beautiful, inspiring collection of essays that speak to mothers at all stages of their journey."
--Arianna Huffington, founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post

"While one of the most extraordinary experiences, motherhood can be one of the most isolating experiences a woman will ever face. All that most of us want to hear is that we are not alone on this crazy ride - and that is just what A Letter for Every Mother will accomplish. Compiling a collection of stories that every single person in this market will relate to, with a message that each of them craves, is a genius move. I believe this book will sell itself and I can't wait to see it published."
--Tori Grenz, Editor of Mamalode

"Kara and Regan have managed to capture the entire essence of being a mother - the highs, the lows and everything in between - in this beautiful collection of essays. You will find yourself comforted by the commonalities we all face, and reminded that, even though it doesn't always feel like it, we're all on the same side. Motherhood, like the words on these pages, unites us."
--Jill Smokler of Scary Mommy, New York Times bestselling author

Freda, here.
This is a photo of my beautiful mom and myself. 
Now that I am over 40, both of my kids are now adults on their own, I look at my mom and am thankful for her. She is always there for me. She is one of the only people in the world I could always talk to about stuff, no matter what. The older she gets, the more I want to embrace whatever time we have left together.
Next winter, her and I are off to Cuba to make some memories together. No one else is coming, and I can't wait! A week in paradise with someone I can have more fun with than anyone.

I'm sure most of you can relate to how I feel. Just like this book I'm featuring, everyone has a story, and everyone has a mother. If you could write a letter to your mom. what would you say? Here is mine to my mom;

Dear mom,

I know we don't see each other every day, with you living so far, but I just want to say what you mean to me. I love how we text every day. seeing that good morning text makes my day, and shows me how much you love me. 
Thank you for always being there for me, even if I was being a shithead.
I know your love is unconditional and I am grateful.
I'm here for you always, just like you've been for me.

I love you,

Freda.

  1. This wonderful book is a real treasure which I would cherish. Mothers are soothing, loving, devoted, caring and know how to relate to children, grandchildren and are always needed, but many times unappreciated which is unfair. Mothers provide us with our values, principles and keep us strong and give us hope and love.
