They can be our toughest critic while being our biggest fan. Their reminders to put on our lipstick, study hard, and stand up straight may have driven us crazy, but there’s nothing more magical than the way their smell, laugh, hug, or chicken-and-rice casserole can make everything better. I’m fortunate to still have my amazing mom Donna who can make the most mundane task seem like a party and who always reminds me that the best things in life are free. And I’m grateful to be called mom by three handsome, smart, and pretty perfect sons Austin, Jared and Lane.
We recently asked you to nominate women in your life who have lifted you up so that you could flourish, and we were overwhelmed by the stories you shared about sacrifice, support, and unconditional love. You told us about your mothers and step-mothers who motivated you and your sisters who are like second moms to your kids. You honored your grandmothers who cared for you so that your moms could provide, and you recognized friends whose maternal selflessness and positivity amidst life’s toughest moments inspired you.
On this Mother’s Day, I want to honor you. Whether you are a new mom in need of a nap, a nostalgic mom finding your new normal, a mom to babies with four legs and fur, an aspiring mom, or simply celebrating the mothers in your life, I celebrate you and the women who helped shape you into who you are today.
It’s the magic in each of you that makes Avon so special. And like a mom, you are the keepers of our community whose trust, care, and comfort mean so much to so many...including me.
Have a great AVON Mother’s Day!
