In our recent Mother’s Day contest, we asked LynnValleyLife readers to tell us the most important lesson they learned from their mother.

We’re happy to introduce you to Eryn Arnott, who wrote the following:

“The best lesson I learned from my mom was how to love unconditionally.  Although my mom died when I was young, there was never a time I could not go to her for, or with, anything. She was always there with open arms, a hug, or word of wisdom.  She taught me what it means to be a mom.”

Thanks, Eryn, for reminding us how important it is to ‘be there’ for each other, whether as parents, kids, or friends. We hope you enjoy your gift from the Red Tulip Gift Shop in Lynn Valley Village.
