My first and most important role model in life was my mom, Nancy. This Mother’s Day, and every day, I give thanks for all of the things she’s taught me: kindness to animals, the importance of saying thank you, and the best recipe for custard pie (and I’m not sharing!).
Today my fellow Etsy admin are sharing what they’ve learned from their moms and grandmothers, as well as some cute photos from now and yesteryear. What has your mom taught you? Share your thoughts in the comments or on Twitter and Instagram by mentioning @etsy and the hashtag #momtaughtme, and we’ll share our favorites next week!
“My mom has taught me to look at the world with potential: to carefully observe and question my surroundings and to always consider not just what something is, but what it could be.” – Cambria, Product Designer
“My grandma taught me that to be an expert does not simply mean having all of the knowledge and information about something — it’s understanding why your work is important and the impact you may have. I try and remember that before I start anything new, and it helps me love the work I do.” – Parker, Seller Development Specialist
“My mom taught me all about love, compassion and humility.” – Eva, Senior Project and Production Manager
“My mom taught me that there are nice people everywhere. Sometimes you just have to look for them.” – Tara, Senior Risk Agent
