Accessorize Your Mom This Mother’s Day With A Handbag

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

  1. My heart breaks that you had to lose your Mom!! This past year I have shed a lot of tears over my own Mom. She was diagnosed with cancer last July, went through chemo and radiation and all the horrible things that those entail, and thankfully has been healed and is on the road to recovery. I can’t imagine feeling more pain than I felt watching her go through it all. She may never be the same as she was before the cancer, but I praise and thank God that she is still with us!!

    Your Mom sounds like an amazing woman who was very much loved by family and friends! Hugs to you as you remember her this week, and may God wrap His arms of comfort around you in a special way!

  2. ohhh… Cyndi. Here’s a biig hug for you this Mother’s Day. I can’t imagine your pain of missing your Mom. I loooved your post today so much; just the reminder that our tears don’t go unnoticed by our loving God! I’m sure I would have loved your Mom— she seems like such a sweetheart and often reminds me of my Mom. As I’ve said countless times before, I love your blog and am so encouaged when I “visit”. I often share what I read with my husband and as he washed the supper dishes and I dried, we had tears as I told him of your post today. Lots of love Cyndi!!! 🙂

  3. Thank you Gennie for stopping by my blog. I’m so glad you feel it’s an encouraging place. I always want to point women to Christ.
    I’m sorry for the loss of your Dad. I’m sure Father’s day is difficult for you.
    Thanks again and have a great week!

  4. Hey Susan!
    Sorry about making you cry! I’m having some sentimental moments this week thinking about Mom. I still miss her so much!
    Hope you’re doing well and Happy Mother’s day.

  5. Hi Barb!
    Thanks for stopping by and sharing about your pastors comment. I love that “holy water”.
    Sending hugs your way too as you celebrate Mother’s day without your Mom.

  6. I really enjoy your blog and your Facebook page Cyndi! Your mom sounded like an amazing woman. How blessed your family was to have her. I have shed my share of liquid tears for all the reasons above but thankfully the marriage part, we made it through the difficult times. I enjoy to read of all the beautiful things your mom did for you and your sister. I lost my dad and I understand the loss. I also love that you share scripture and share your faith. It’s such an encouraging place here. Thank you! Blessings!

  7. After I lost my mom in 2008, my pastor commented that we should never hesitate to cry over the loss of a loved one. We should consider our tears “holy water”. I know how your heart aches in missing your mom this holiday. I share your pain. Sending you hugs!
