August 7th: Hug Your Mama Day

I know, I haven't been on the blog for quite some time!
Me with my Mama when I was pregnant with my son.

As we get near the anniversary of my Mom's passing, I was trying to figure out how I would focus on the positive. Then, a thought came to me, how about we call August 7th "Hug your mama" day? It has been something I have been thinking about for weeks and a very dear friend encouraged me to do it.

Once I told my family they were completely on board! I don't know why, but I truly thought this was just going to be personal for myself, my family and my closest friends.  However, we decided to share it with everyone and quite a few people have decided to participate. And, we want as many people to participate as possible.

How do you participate?
Go to our face book page and like it:  Hug Your Mama 
This Friday, August 7th, post your pictures with you and your mama, or you with your loved ones on our Hug Your Mama page. 
*feel free to find a picture and post "in memory of" if your loved one has passed away
The goal is to share the love!
As a family in September we are participating in the Walk to End Lupus now.  If that is also something you want to participate in please get involved in some way!  You can participate by joining our team(virtually or in person) and you can also give financially to support the cause. More to come about Lupus next month!
To participate in any way click this link ---->My Tough Mama team page

I might just get back into this writing thing once again...
