Write Your Mother!!

We at Boomer Connections are encouraging everyone to Write Your Mother in honor of  Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 13. We feel so strongly about it that we sent out a press release, which you can read below, hoping to spread the idea near and far. If you love your mother, tell her. If you admire her, tell her. If she influenced your life, tell her. And if she is no longer here, write the words in her memory to encourage others to say the words in person while they still can.


Richmond VA Based Blog Starts “Write Your Mother” Campaign

Richmond, VA— (April 26, 2018) Boomer Connections, a blog targeting Baby Boomers, is sending out the call to “Write Your Mother” on Mother’s Day.

“If you are lucky enough to still have your mother, write a tribute to her and let her know what she has meant to you,” encourages Cherie Blazer, CEO. “If she has passed, honor her memory, tell her story, and encourage others to do the same.”

As the name implies, the blog at www.boomerconnections.com, is a place for the Baby Boomer generation to connect.  But the blog’s primary mission is to inspire.

The idea behind this campaign is simple yet profound—Tell your people that you love them, and what you love about them, while you have the opportunity. Don’t wait to express yourself at the eulogy. It is so easy to take relationships for granted, especially between a mother and a child. For a mother to receive a written testimony of what her life has meant is a keepsake precious beyond words.

“This campaign is representative of our core mission, which is to inspire Boomers to live full and meaningful lives their whole lives, and to reflect upon and appreciate what matters most,” says Blazer.

Boomer Connections encourages readers to share their letters and even photos on the Boomer Connections site if they feel comfortable doing so. A section of the blog will be devoted to these tributes.  While the blog is geared to the Baby Boomer generation, the stories, the love, and—hopefully—the inspiration for others to “write your mother,” is timeless and intergenerational.

Boomer Connections invites you to join the conversation at www.boomerconnections.com. We welcome both comments and guest contributors.

She was playing with Barbies while her older sisters marched on Washington and fought for equal rights, but watched and learned. Now she is an empty nester with a whole new future to explore and share at www.BoomerConnections.com! As “Philosopher in Chief” Cherie merely wants to change the world with this blog: to encourage those of us in the midst of our “second act” to look at life with new eyes, open to a life filled with new beginnings rather than endings, and to apply all we have learned to a way of living that is more meaningful and profound. There is SO much to live for, up until the very end.

One thought on “Write Your Mother!!”

  1. I love this, what a wonderful thing to do for someone we love! I’m inexpressibly blessed to still have my mother, the happy note in her voice when i call her each morning is impossible to describe. She should get a letter telling her so!
