Motivation Monday

Life Vest Inside has had the very good fortune of finding writers willing to share their Kindness Stories/Articles with us. One of our special recurring writers is David Jablinowitz, Op-Ed Editor at Jerusalem Post, who is famous for his “bus stories.”

Mother’s Care Package

Emily lived far away from her mother when she got married. She missed her dearly, especially on special occasions like Mother’s Day. Emily wanted to do something special for her mother, but she didn’t know what to do.
Then she came up with an idea. She decided to send her mother a care package filled with things she knew her mother loved. Emily spent hours carefully selecting each item, from her mother’s favorite snacks to a new book she had been wanting to read. She even included a handwritten letter expressing her love and gratitude for all that her mother had done for her over the years.
When Emily’s mother received the package, she was overjoyed. She felt so loved and appreciated, even though her daughter was miles away. She immediately called Emily to thank her and express how much the thoughtful gift meant to her.
Her mother was so touched by the gesture that she decided to plan a surprise visit to see her daughter. When she arrived, they spent the whole weekend together, laughing, reminiscing, and making new memories. Emily’s mother felt so grateful to have such a loving daughter, and Emily felt equally grateful for her mother’s love and support.
From that day on, Emily and her mother made it a priority to stay in touch, even when they were far apart. They sent care packages, video chatted regularly, and made plans to visit each other whenever they could.
The simple act of sending a care package brought a mother and daughter even closer together, reminding them of the love and bond that they share. It’s a beautiful reminder that even the smallest gestures of love and appreciation can have a big impact on the people we care about most.
