Call Your Mother for FREE for Mother's Day - Blog
This Sunday is Mother’s day. How many of us live far away from our moms? Our Moms are like no other, in our lives.
I think back to leaving home at 17 years of age to move to Austin, Texas because I got an opportunity to be a researcher on a television show. My mother begged me not to go and I told her I would escape if she didn’t let me. I left her crying on the steps of my house in Teaneck, New Jersey. As I drove cross country in my orange Chevette and I wondered what was wrong with her, why was she crying when I was being offered a once in a life time job?
Now I wonder, what was I was thinking? I would be hysterical if my son did that to me. But the truth is sometimes we are selfish and sometimes we have to be selfish to move forward and bring our families and ourselves Adelante!
I now call my mom every day and we often remember that day and finally can laugh about it. How different might my life have been if I had not dared to go, if I had stayed in Teaneck? I think my mom, most of all, is pleased with the outcome. She often tells me, “Wait until Lukas does it to you! … Remember there is mom karma".
I am so happy that our incredible partner Coca-Cola is helping each of you call our mom this week wherever she may be. We can have that conversation, ask her that question and tell her what she means to us - those things we often forget to do in our busy lives.
Coca-Cola is launching a remarkable, interactive video that connects sons and daughters with their mothers. The “Inseparable” video reminds viewers of the unbreakable bond between mother and child, and takes viewers through the emotional journey of the ever-changing, loving, and sometimes challenging relationship between mothers and daughters. After finishing the Mother’s Day video, viewers in the U.S. and Puerto Rico are prompted to make a free 3-minute phone call to surprise their mother anywhere in the world.
For an exclusive sneak peek of the video and an opportunity to call your mother, join the #Inseparable Twitter Party happening tonight, May 6th, from 9 to 10 pm EST.
