I have received information about the TYLENOL® For What Matters Most™ campaign from McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., the makers of TYLENOL®. The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post.


I’ve spent the last several years of my family life on Uncle Sam’s time. Being part of the military lifestyle is a great experience and watching our family members go overseas to protect our country is beyond humbling. It’s because of this that my family has spent the better part of eight years away from each other. We have missed everything from birthdays and anniversaries to first days of schools and even funerals.

It doesn’t take my spouse serving in a combat zone to know that family matters most, but it certainly is one of the best reminders to make the most of each day we have together. This holiday season is all about letting dad indulge in many of the funny holiday traditions he has missed. We are baking together, wrapping presents and he and the kids are spending lots of time watching holiday classics. They truly are enjoying just having him home.

It’s extremely tough to try to send Christmas in a care package when your husband is deployed. You do your best to make the package special but nothing beats homes. The biggest change is my spouse is now in the National Guard and so he is home a lot more then he was while serving Active Duty. Even still he can be sent to a combat zone so we are taking advantage of as many holidays where we can spend time together as possible. I enjoy not having to drag gifts downstairs by myself.

TYLENOL® And What Matters Most


The holidays is an extremely reflective time for me because I remember all of the ones I have spent alone with just me and the kids. I couldn’t wait to share TYLENOL® For What Matters Most™ campaign which encourages us to remember that family matters most no matter the dynamics or the makeup. Holidays are often difficult for military both at home and serving overseas so it’s a great message to send that home is where the heart even when dad or mom has to go away to serve. Many of our holidays were spent not with our immediate family but with our military family. Many Thanksgivings have been spent at the table with fellow military spouses and soldiers. We have found ways to celebrate and be a family no matter what even when dad is not around. We can still celebrate and show love no matter where, and despite the circumstances.

That’s why I was more than happy to pass the “What Matters Most” message on to my military spouse readers. The What Matter Most campaign is a modern spin on Norman Rockwell’s classic holiday painting FreedomFrom Want, to help illustrate how modern families come together to celebrate what matters most during the holidays.

For 60 years, the makers of TYLENOL® have helped to care for families. I know because TYLENOL® has been part of my family for a long time which is why I wanted to be part of this awesome message.

They put together this beautiful holiday message to share their message.

I’m pretty sure you know a fellow military family who is missing their loved one this holiday season. If so feel free to pin the below image on Pinterest of the Hoshida family and spread the message of what matters most.


 I’d love for you to share what matter most to you this holiday season?
