Happy Mother’s Day from Kelly Corrigan

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

I want to be Kelly Corrigan when I grow up. The author of the New York Times best-selling memoir, The Middle Place, has a new book, Lift (soon to be reviewed here), and a new video that will bring a lump to your throat.

Lift celebrates the successes and trials of motherhood, and this video is what Kelly calls the thank you inspired by the women she knows.

I love how she put it together. Through Facebook, Kelly asked her friends and fans to list all of the things that mothers want to be thanked for and to share photos. Kelly compiled a photo montage and a voiceover, all edited by her seventeen-year-old neighbor who will be attending NYU Film School this fall.

With Mother’s Day approaching, this is the perfect time to thank your mom — and to pay tribute to all the moms you know. Send mom a link to this video. Then write her a letter telling her what you appreciate about her and thanking her for all she’s done. Happy Mother’s Day!
