A Heartfelt Prayer to Mothers Around the World

Parent Connection series. Design composed of graceful profile lines of mother and child as a metaphor on the subject of parenting, motherhood, human connection and familyToday is the day when we pause to give a heartfelt thank you and prayer to the very special women in our lives who gave us the gift of life. Archangel Michael says, “Mothers are truly God’s co-creators and are to be revered.” So thank you moms all over the world for giving of yourselves, for your sacrifice, your guidance, your admiration, and your unconditional love. Your children are forever grateful. May you feel honored by your accomplishments that walk the earth and enjoy being celebrated on this glorious Mother’s Day. Amen.

Do Something Special for Your Mom

I don’t think I really appreciated all a mother is until I became one. Even then, I experienced anger and resentment towards my mother more than anything else in the beginning. I started raising my own children and suddenly I saw the things that didn’t work about my own upbringing, the flaws, the seeming mistakes that were made. But then, one day all that disappeared. I woke up and realized there are no accidents, every lesson good or bad brought me here to this moment and made me what I am today. I have a deep and rich understanding of the sacrifices, the giving, the non-judgement and the unconditional love that my mother had for me growing up, and has for me today as a grown woman.

Mother’s Day is coming up and I invite you to do something special for your mother. This 2-minute video clip will help you come up with something tailor made just for her, whether it’s a party, brunch or a gift. It’s a little exercise I like to call “Filling the Senses” and it’s designed to provide happiness. The perfect gift to give a mom!

Celebrating Mom on Mother’s Day

I love this month’s episode of Shelby’s Secrets to a Great Party! because the Party Plan is a Garden Brunch to honor Mom. Now whether or not you chose to throw Mom a party for Mother’s Day, do watch the video clips because much of what I introduced as party ideas can actually be made into beautiful heart-felt mother’s day gifts as well.

For example, in the Food & Beverage clip I introduce an idea using personalized ramekins. Signed by the special people in her life, along with a copy of our Baked Eggs recipe, this could be a delicious gift.

In the Activities clip I show you how to put together an “I Love You Because” book, complete with a floral pen inspired by mom’s favorite flower. Filled with heart-felt sentiments, even photos, this gift is unique and momentous.

After watching the Mother’s Day Garden Brunch episode myself, I thought even if someone did one or two of the elements for mom, what a celebration she would have. Being a mother myself, I speak the truth.

To all the mom’s out there…this one’s for you! Happy, Happy Mother’s Day!
