From All of Us at WAYB: Thank You, Mom


Here at WAYB, family is at the core of who we are.

This Mother’s Day weekend, we asked you to share an appreciation post for the mamas out there. We loved seeing your families and hearing about your Mother’s Day traditions! You all even inspired us to pull some photos of our favorite ladies and share why we treasure their presence in our lives. See below for some mama love letters from the WAYB team!

“Here is a pic of my mom and my sister in law! Both of these women mean so much to me. My mom (maroon coat) is there for me no matter what!  She is one of my strongest supporters and always has my back! She’s strong and has instilled that strength in me!

My Sister-in-law (next to my mom) is one of the most dedicated moms I know!  She is there for my nephews through all of their many sports activities and doesn’t bat an eye when she’s at a weekend tournament all day!  She has a great sense of humor and is always willing to lend a helping hand!” - Ericka Sykes, Director of Sales

My mom is a true inspiration, at 80 years old she still travels the world seeking adventure and culture. She has such a giving heart as she volunteers every week to help men and women become US citizens!  I lost my dad at a young age, and she truly has been there for me in every way. I’m so blessed for her love, wisdom and guidance. She is a special, special soul.” - Sarah Diaz, Chief of Sales

My mom was always cool, but as I’ve gotten older, she’s also become my best friend. She always wanted to be an archaeologist or an anthropologist, but she was encouraged to go to business school instead. She picked the most creative field she could, marketing, and now she has her dream job as Director of Marketing and Outreach for all the state-run museums and monuments in New Mexico. She ultimately found out how to have both. She inspires me to work hard, not to give up on my dreams, and to remember to chill out and have fun often. I love her a ton.

Also shout-out to my sweet grandmother, who has been my bonus mom since birth.” - Sawyer Perry, Customer Experience and eCommerce Associate
