Best Mother’s Day Gift (link to post)

Hi again, I made a whoopsie. I didn’t link properly in my last letter. Click the above for my page on the Best Mother’s Day Gift.

Happy Weekend!

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”
Washington Irving

That is my absolute favorite quotes about mothers.

I’ve thought long and hard about the Best Mother’s Day gifts. Though some people might feel ‘Mother’s Day’ is too commercial, I’m still grateful somebody decided to devote a day out of the 365 days to commemorate mothers.

I’ve always been a Mummy’s girl. I enjoyed picking out presents for my mother over the years. Some years when I was busy, I simply sent flowers. Sometimes I wrote a card. And worse, other times I made a phone call. I’ve never forgotten because I’m grateful to all the advertising you see and hear during that time.

What makes the best gifts for mothers day?

Your actions and words of love.

Material things come and go, flowers die but it is the memory that is kept. After I moved out of home and lived overseas for many years, my mother was packing up her old drawers and found her stash of my many letters I wrote to her as a girl. She scanned them in and sent it to me. I was quite embarrassed at first, because of the childish topics I wrote about, the ugly drawings and the many many spelling errors.

But you know, all she saw was love. Her heart swelled with pride and joy.

I was too self-absorbed and made her promise not to show those (embarrassing) letters to anyone.

A while later, God gently nudged me in my heart and I looked past my silly insecurities. I felt an overwhelming love and sense of gratitude that she was my mother. She gave me so much even before I could ever give back. It is the first real unconditional love we know.

So back to the topic of the Best Mother’s Day Gift…(Read more)

I didn’t want to write anything else because I wanted to lavish all your attention and thoughts on your mothers. Nothing else is as important. So you can check out the new elegant woman blog next week!

Meanwhile, all my love to you and your mothers and I honor you, as a mother. You are the joy of all womanhood.
