A Mother's Love
In my opinion, the adage "a mother's love knows no limitations" is true. As a friend and relative of many mothers, I am in amazement of how their compassion, hard work, joy, caring, wisdom, and love have only grown since becoming a mother.
My mother has all of these qualities and more, and I know that she has been tried by me and my brother throughout the years, and she has endured it all with grace. With the passage of time and the challenges of my new entrepreneurial endeavor, our relationship has become closer than I ever imagined possible.
You can always trust that mom knows best
Mom has never led us astray and always has our best interests at heart when she shares her wealth of knowledge and suggestions with our plant-based ready-to-eat meal delivery service. From manifesting our name to my hair, make-up, and outfits in our many MANNA videos to flavour tweaks in our organic plant-based meals, moms give the best input.
Moms are our biggest cheerleader
She took the risk with me and our healthy brand built on nutritionally balanced, convenient, and ecologically conscientious meals alongside me. Instead of relaxing in her golden years of retirement, she has poured her heart into every aspect of MANNA, from daily check-ins to giving snacks for her MANNA kids to organizing and disinfecting all reusable items and recycling the rest. Following our zero-waste model, she will guarantee that any leftover meals are distributed to the homeless or others in need in our community. She consoled me when I was in tears and picked me up when I didn't know what to do. She is the best team captain ever since, she always shows up no matter how she is feeling.
Moms are full of surprises
Mom just surprised me beyond belief, and it was in those moments when I didn't believe she was listening to me, she was all ears the whole time. It was tough for my family to understand what eating organic vegan meals meant throughout my transition to a more plant-based diet. My mother, in her nurturing way, always made sure there was food on the table for me to eat and put her heart and soul into adapting what she typically cooked to suit my needs. She never ceases to amaze me by curating her own amazing plant based concoctions just to make sure I am eating, and family dinner is now full of lovely plant based food alongside her regular mainstays. Mom is working her way towards more plant-forward and healthy behaviors, which I never imagined possible. She has gone a long way from where she started with the idea of plant-based eating, and I couldn't be more grateful.
Receiving fresh flowers and a card may become the basic minimum. You want to show Mom how much you care, yet expressing your gratitude right might be difficult. Fortunately, there are a few tried-and-true methods to show Mom how much you care on her important day (and all year long).
When we think about our mothers, we can't help but think of all of the unconditional love they have shown us. Consider giving your Mom the gift of time and nutrients this Mother's Day and always by scheduling a week or subscription of our plant-based ready-to-eat meals to be delivered to her front door for your next dinner date. Organic, nutritionally balanced, and convenient vegan recipes so you can spend more time together creating lasting memories than in the kitchen.
To our very own MANNA Mama - the Queen of our hearts and all the other beautiful Mom's in our community, Happy Mother’s Day!
