Good morning friends!
Today we’re going to continue to honor our Mom’s with gift ideas for Mother’s Day.
I was blessed to have an amazing Mother and although she is not with me here on earth
her legacy lives on in each of her children and her grandchildren.
I love the quote that says, “A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie
for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” ~Tenneva Jordan
That was my Mom. Although I know she loved pie, she would have given it to her children,
hands down. I have countless memories of Mom staying up half the night to make us a
costume, help us with a school project, or make cupcakes for a school party.
Looking back, I don’t know how she did it all! But I’m so thankful for my Mom and although
I’m heartbroken that she’s gone, I still want to celebrate her life!
If you’re looking for something special to get your Mom this Mother’s Day, why not accessorize
her with a cute handbag. There are so many to choose from this spring/summer season and I’m
sure any Mom could use a new handbag! Here are several that I love~
This over the shoulder is for the trendy Mom and would be great to carry when you don’t want
to worry with a big bulky purse. I also love the color!
Casually sipping coffee at Starbucks or running errands around town with your children in tow,
every Mom would love this carry-all shopper handbag by Liz Claiborne. It’s perfect for all occasions.
This stylish colorblock tote would make any Mom fashionable for the spring/summer season.
It’s by Simply Vera Vera Wang.
Again, this season is all about color blocking! With a simple trim and polished silvertone hardware,
this gorgeous Style&co. bag would be perfect for any Mom.
This is my favorite one by Steve Madden at Macy’s (actually there are others I like better
but they are way too pricey for me!) This handbag is elegant and highlights a pebbled texture
with shiny gold tone hardware, including chain-link detail on the detachable shoulder strap.
I love the chain-link detail and I’m on the hunt for a handbag that has that detail.
Accessories are a great way to add trendy fashion to any Mom’s wardrobe without having to
spend a lot of money. There are so many great ones to choose from!
Do you know what you’re getting your Mom for Mother’s Day? I’d love to know!
Beauty For the Heart~~One of the sweetest memories my sister and I have of Mom when she
was dying with cancer was at the hospital when she was receiving her first (and only) chemo
treatment. She looked so beautiful laying back in the chair hooked up to the IV that would
administer the drugs. It was hard for us to see and tears started streaming down Traci’s face.
I was trying hard not to cry and told her to try and be strong for Mom.
Mom saw Traci and said, “It’s okay, sweetie, you can cry.
You know what tears are, don’t you?” Traci answered, “No.” Mom lovingly said,
“Tears are liquid prayers that flow straight to the heart of God.”
So typical of our Mom, always knowing just what to say.
On my, I can’t begin to tell you how many liquid prayers that have flown
straight to the heart of God over the loss of my Mom!
I wonder how many of you have recently shed some tears.
Maybe because of the loss of a loved one, or the end of a marriage, maybe you’ve been hurt
by a friend. Whatever your pain, your tears have not gone unnoticed by a loving God.
God hears, and oh how he cares!
Praying today that you will feel his never ending love for you.
He will wipe every tear from their eye. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain,
for the old order of things has passed away. Revelation 21:4
