Taking Time To Appreciate Mothers

06 May, 2016

Mother’s Day is an incredibly important time of the year, because this is the day that we show our appreciation to our moms for all they do for us. Without meaning to, we often take them for granted, whether it is them greeting us at the door after a long day of school, or even when you’re older and they call once a week to check up on us.

Take time to appreciate your mother this Mother's Day.

This Mother’s Day, Heidel House Resort & Spa associates took a moment to share their heartwarming thoughts of their mothers.

Amanda Fendryk and her mother.

Amanda Fendryk – Grey Rock Sous Chef

“Ever since I can remember my mom has told me I could be whatever I wanted to be. If I put my mind to it and worked hard she would do whatever she could to help make it happen. It never mattered what it was sports, school, or my career I know my mom is 100% in my corner. My mom’s love and support means everything to me and I don’t know where I’d be without it.”


Stephanie Prachal and her mother.

Stephanie Prachel – Executive Assistant

My mom is probably the most important person in my life. She is not only an amazing mom but also a friend. Her fun-loving and caring spirit is an inspiration to me and all those around her.”


Marabeth King and her mother


Marabeth King – Staff Accountant

“My mom is a very strong, independent woman. She has shown and taught me how to be the loving mother I am today. She also tries to help everyone anyway she can. She is one of my best friends, and I am so thankful for all the help she gives me.”


calynn and her mother

Callyn Strebelinski – Esthetician

“I wouldn’t be where I am today in life, and in my profession without my mom. She was the one who inspired me to choose cosmetology as a career path, because she did also. I’ll always cherish having her to look to when in need of some advice; whether it be related to work or what I should color my hair. It’s truly a blessing to have her so close by my side. I hope to someday be as good of mother that she has always been.”


Samantha Becker – Executive Housekeeper

Samantha Becker and her mother.“As a teenager, I always thought my mom was picking on me. That she was just a big bully, making me do things I didn’t want to do. Little did I know she was preparing me for all the obstacles in life and trying to make me strong enough for what the world had to throw at me. She picked me up on the days I felt I couldn’t carry on, wiped my tears when my heart felt like it would crumbled to pieces, and celebrated my successes as if they were her own. She has stood by me without judgement and loved me through all our disagreements. And even though at one time I wouldn’t have admitted it, I’m proud to be told I’m like my mother. I hope I portray even a small ounce of the confidence and compassion she has shown throughout these years.”


Lindsay Stone and her mother

Lindsay Stone – Event Manager

“My mom has been such an inspiration in my life. Growing up, she was a very hard working mother who was able to succeed in not only her job, but raising her children as well. Now that I am a mother, I see how much work goes into balancing both of those things in life. I value everything she has taught me about patience, hard work and still keeping time to have fun and enjoy my family.”
