A Message to Mum

March 24, 2017

1. How often do you tell your mom you love her?

Not often. Stop lying. Here’s the thing though; you probably should do so often. Scratch that, you DEFINITELY should — every day. Here are few reasons why:

2. You would not be here without her

3. She prays for you, even when you don’t remember her for days.

4. Because she always knows how to cheer you up.

5. She would do anything for you.

6. Remember when you broke your ankle (or was it your knee, your wrist or your skull – it’s got to be one of those) and she simply took care of you instead of getting mad? Big reason.

7. She helped you make sense of this menstrual pain business.

So … You should totes show her you love and appreciate her this mother’s day. Start by telling her you love her. Use the free Knorr #MessageToMom webapp to send a message to mom this mother’s day. It will send a text to your mom and create a video of you and your mom that you can share on Facebook and Twitter too.

8. Send a #MessageToMom Now!

So go on, send a message. Send that message, person reading these words on their phone (or is it your computer?) It’s the least you can do for a mom that has given up so much for you. Do it.
