Honor the Mothers in Your Life
With a Special Gift from our Sweet Retreat
With Mother's Day around the corner, I've been thinking about all the special women in my life who do—or have done—the good, hard, brave, messy, gloriously beautiful work of mothering.
Some of them have mothered me...not just my own wonderful mom, but also my grandmothers and aunts, Sunday school teachers and special neighbors, mentors and role models. Others mother my grandbabies, my nieces and nephews, the children both big and small down the street...across town...around the world.
Some of them have mothered for years, while others are just beginning their long journey of love and care. Some have become mothers through childbirth, some through adoption or foster care, and others by simply offering their mothering heart each and every time the opportunity comes their way.
All of them give, and serve, and nurture, and protect tirelessly from the deepest part of their heart and with every fiber of their being...and not one of them gets as much credit or appreciation as she deserves. And I can't think of a single one who wouldn't love a thoughtful note and a sweet treat!
This Mother's Day, we'd love to help you send love to a mother in your life, whatever shape her mothering may take. We'll even tuck in some extra special touches to her package along with your own, personal note (at no extra charge, of course).
"She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come."
