mom’s the word

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms in our lives! Read some stories from the men of lululemon about the loves of their lives, their moms!
Rob: Director of Operations at lululemon athletica
My mother Marge was born in the small farm and mining town of Yatesboro, Pennsylvania. My mother loves nature and is especially fond of the ocean. She has a great sense of family and the home both her and my dad created was one of love and support that allowed me to become the person I am today. Christmas is a special time as mom transforms the house into a winter wonderland of trees and lights and enough food to feed an army. Going home to this day during the holidays makes me feel like a child again.
My mother always told me to trust myself no matter what the situation. No matter what the outcome she was always there for me.
I want to thank my mom for always keeping me grounded and for teaching me about all the little things in life. Most importantly how to love. My mother also to taught me how to cook and it remains a passion that we both share and a love of mine to this day.
Nate: Film and Motion Designer at lululemon athletica
Tell us about your mom: Grew up in southern Ontario… she loves scrapbooking…just because.
What’s the best piece of advice your mom ever gave you?: “Do what you think is right”.
I want to thank my mom for: Letting me take the van that one weekend in high school…
Chuck: Web Manager at lululemon athletica
My Mom grew up in a big family in tough times in Nova Scotia and accomplished her RN degree before marrying my Dad and moving across the country to Port Moody. She raised four boys, and did it with care, love and composure. She set the bar very high for me as a parent for patience and her approach to parenting.
The best piece of advice my mom ever gave me is to always think about how your actions affect other people.
I want to thank my mom for teaching me how to be a parent.
Jon: Sales Audit Analyst at lululemon athletica
Without a doubt, my mom played a major role in my life while I was growing up. She was not a typical stay-at-home mom but more like “Superwoman”. Neither did she wear a cape nor have superpowers but she was always there when I needed her help. While growing up, she would constantly remind me to work hard and plan for the future. Without her advice, I would never be where I am now.
I want to thank her for valuable advice and her years of support. (And I am not just saying this because it is Mother’s Day.)
