It has happened to me and I know that it might have happened to you as well, there was a time where I unintentionally forgot to wish my mother a happy Mother’s Day. She didn’t say a word to me on that day and I didn’t even realise it was Mother’s day, I was away on a work trip and called her daily, even on Mother’s Day but never wished her. A week after, I returned home and there she was and welcomed me with an amazingly delicious ‘welcome home’ meal. Later that day she took out all the presents that my siblings had gifted her, for a moment I thought, did I miss her birthday? She then explained to me it was Mother’s Day a few days ago. I didn’t have to explain myself but she said “sh” I understand you were away for work. I knew I had to make it up to her, not that she asked but I felt I owed it to her, and so that following Monday I returned home with a bunch of flowers and a spa voucher. Do you relate to this?

Mother’s Day honours all moms around the world. Even though it is impossible to measure exactly how much your mother does for you, a Cadbury P.S. which reads “I Love You” or “Thank You” is a noble way to acknowledge her.
Mothers are not always recognised for the role that they so effortlessly play in our lives. They make us who we are and teach us a lot about who we could become, especially as young women.
“Cadbury P.S. wishes all moms a very special Mother’s Day,” says Andrea Wright, Mondelez SA Category Lead for Chocolate. “While some people will choose to go big on a gift for Mom, others know that even a small gesture like giving a Cadbury P.S. will go a long way to show that you appreciate and care for her.”
