Time to Celebrate Moms!
I don’t think Mother’s Day should be just one day, I feel that we should honor moms the entire month! It doesn’t matter if you are a mom to children or a mom to pets, you are a mom!
I am the luckiest woman in the world…I am a mom to the best 13 year old EVER! He is an amazing student but more importantly an even better human. He has a heart of gold, is loving, caring and just thinking about him brings me tears of joy! I have also been blessed with the most incredible mother and grandmother (who will be 93 years young in August and still going strong)! I am an only child and only grandchild so therefore I am super close to both of them. My Mom and Grandma love long necklaces, which is one reason I carry them in my boutique. It is easy for them to put them on and go. I have given them all the ones I have at thehugsshop.com so this past Christmas I wanted to do something special for them. I found a beautiful long necklace for each of us to wear and I created a meaning behind it. The necklace has an emerald stone, a golden circle and a horseshoe. The meaning is…
My Grandmother Marie…She is as beautiful as the emerald stone. She has always been beautiful on the outside but her inner beauty is just as bright. Her wisdom, encouragement and continued love for us and Jesus Christ is felt in every hug she gives. I thank her for providing us with countless smiles and warming our hearts just by being her.
My Mother Gail…She is the golden circle that keeps our family together. The circle is a symbol of continuous motion and unity. She is the hardest working woman I know as she still works 50+ hours a week! She means everything to us, without her…there is nothing. She is my best friend, always there when I need a helping hand or just someone to listen. I thank her for the million things she does that keep us going. Words can’t really express how grateful we are.
Me…I am the horseshoe. This is a symbol of good luck and protection. My amazing son is such a wonderful young man that is so kind and caring. And, my loving husband protects me always. These two help me create this horseshoe. I also wish I could be as great as my mom and grandmother. (and as I was reading this to my son, he said “you already are great…you are an amazing mom”) and, the happy tears flow. For all these reasons, I am so incredibly blessed.
So, if you see me, my Mom or Grandmother wearing this necklace, you now know the meaning behind it. By the way, these necklaces will be available soon on thehugsshop.com!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!! It’s time to Celebrate You!!
