Storytime for Mommy [VIDEO]
We came across this beautiful story on The Little Things. If you are a mommy, how often do you forget just how important you are? How often are you reminded? Deborah's surprise will show you how much a mommy really means to her little ones.
An event planner and full-time mom, Deborah is one busy woman. She has two beautiful little girls with her husband of seven years, Warren. Sadie is six and Molly is four. Warren has a demanding work schedule, so Deborah is often overwhelmed holding down the fort at home alone.
Then Kraft stepped in to ask Warren about an idea to show Deborah just how much the family appreciates her. Warren said yes on the spot. Kraft arranged a secret meeting with the girls and children's author Paulette Bourgeois. With pictures in tow, the girls gave their memories to Paulette, and created amazing works of art to portray each one. The drawings evolved into illustrations for a children's book about a "quirky memory-making machine." However, the machine is no robot and has a lot of heart.
With a little white lie, Warren and the girls got their beloved family member to "read the children’s story to a crowded room." As realization washes over her face, the tears start streaming down her cheeks. The entire story is about her family, written by her family, and "describes their love for her."
Now, you can watch the video for yourself, but I must warn you that I couldn't get through to the end without tearing up. Deborah reminds me a lot of my mother. Renata is my very own "Memory Maker," made possible only by the love of a mom for her family. While we might not always see eye-to-eye, she will always be in my corner. And she will always want the best for me, and her other four children. I know I don't say it as often as I should, but I love you mom.
Mother's Day is less than two weeks away. Please share this with the special woman in your life who raised you to be the person you are today. For they are your "Memory-Makers."
