There's no question that the first Mother's Day after divorce can be difficult, if not downright depressing.

That's why we were so impressed by the effort Reddit user GarveyBiggiz made to ensure that his newly divorced mom knew how much he appreciated her this Mother's Day. As GarveyBiggiz explained, his parents divorced a year ago and the split has taken a heavy toll on his mom. Though the Redditor said he hasn't always been there for his mom after the divorce, he showed up in a major way with this sweet note on Mother's Day:

A year after my parents divorce, and my mother falling in to deep depression, I gave made her this card.

It would be hard to find a divorced parent who wouldn't be touched by a letter like that.
