thanksWith Mother’s Day just around the corner, why not tell her you love her with 101 stories of gratitude, love and good times in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom.


A mother’s job is never done, but in this great gift book she gets the praise she deserves. Children from 8 to 80 share their words of gratitude and appreciation in this new collection of stories for moms. Daughters and sons relate tales of love and learning, celebrating moms, their wisdom, and all that they do. These stories of special memories, loving and hard lessons, unforgettable moments, laughter and tears, and support and encouragement will bring any mom joy, inspiration, and amusement. Mothers of all ages, whether new moms, experienced moms, or grandmothers, will feel good about the recognition they receive.


Sometimes I wonder if what I’m saying is really getting through to my kids. They seem to be paying attention but then again I was really good a tuning out my Mom when I was younger. However, I must have been listening on a subconscious level because I think I turned out to be a pretty good person.

In Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom you’ll find many heartwarming stories about just how much influence a Mom has on her child’s life. Whether we realize it or not, we’re role models, teachers, cheerleaders, and best friends. We wear many hats and one day when our kids are older they’ll look back and hopefully appreciate us for who we are and what we did.

Written in true Chicken Soup form, these stories are told in a short-story format which allows you to read as much or as little as your time allows. After all, we all know how busy Moms are! So tell that special Mom in your life how much you value them this Mother’s Day with Chicken Soup for the Soul: Thanks Mom!

    Pain & Inflammation Relief: 3 drops of Chamomile + 3 drops
    of Hyssop + 2 drops of Cypress. This means we need to shift
    to another perspective on a regular basis and remind ourselves how it feels to
    connect with God through our hearts. Do you want to add this to your spiritual tool box.
