Can someone please hand me a tissue? Maybe it’s because my own mom died when I was just 20 or that I’m thinking about my two little sons that this new P&G Olympics ad is affecting me so much. I knew, in general, what would be coming. Procter & Gamble has been using the same formula (“Thank you, Mom”) for the last six years. This two minute video, ok let’s call it a commercial, though, still hits close to home. As a P&G spokeswoman said, it was “inspired by the simple human truth that the daily courage a mom shows echoes at critical moments throughout her child’s life.” Maybe that’s what it was. The moments showed were ones you could relate to. It makes me think about how I need to be strong for both myself and my children.
We’re now just 100 days before the start of the Olympics. (Yay! Bring it on.)
