No matter what your Mother's Day plans may be, it's time to make Mom feel unique, appreciated, and special. After all, Moms make the world go 'round, after all!
I'd like to tell you about a very special Mom that I know. She's such an inspiration, and the folks at Hallmark agree! In fact, they have helped me to honor this special lady by sending her a gorgeous, surprise bouquet of Hallmark Flowers. How cool is that?!
Anyway, as many of you know, my childhood friend, Erin, recently received a heart and liver transplant. She actually got her new heart on Valentine's Day. (How perfect is that?!) Erin still has a long road to recovery, but she's making tons of progress, and I am SO incredibly proud of her!
Erin was born with a series of complex CHDs. (Congenital Heart Defects) Erin has been fighting for her life since the day she was born-literally!
This surgery, which saving Erin's life at the time, also caused both her heart and her liver to start failing due to internal pressure issues. By the time this was properly diagnosed, the damage was already done. Erin ended up getting listed with UNOS to receive a new heart and liver, and she left her home in Virginia to await her transplant at HUP in Philadelphia. She arrived there last fall, and spent the Holidays admitted in the hospital.
That's right....Erin spent several months in the hospital awaiting the call that her miracle had arrived. She wasn't alone, however. Erin's Mom, Crystal, was by her daughter's side the entire time. She left her home as well, and has been in Philadelphia this whole time, too. She's been staying at a house set up for the families of transplant patients, and her life has literally revolved around making sure that Erin is well cared for. She's always been Erin's strongest advocate, and she selflessly put her own life on hold to walk hand and hand with Erin throughout her transplant journey.
I thought that Crystal deserved something extra special this Mother's Day. Not only has she been an amazing Mom to my friend, Erin, she has been an inspiration to so many. Her unwavering faith, her undying love for her child, and her gentle spirit are absolutely beautiful, just like SHE is.
To surprise Crystal, the awesome folks at Hallmark Flowers sent her a surprise bouquet of their signature flowers for Mother's Day. She had no idea they were coming, and they were definitely quite a surprise! From what I hear, they were absolutely stunning, and Crystal is enjoying them very much.

I am definitely very pleased with my Hallmark Flowers. Even a few days after receiving them, my flowers are in bloom, fresh, and they smell amazing, too. I absolutely love the mixture of flowers used in this bouquet, as they offer a very nice assortment of blooms that compliment each other very well.
If you're still looking for that perfect Mother's Day gift and you want to give Mom the very best this year, I would definitely recommend checking out all of the beautiful floral arrangements that Hallmark Flowers has to offer.
