Celebrating Mom 2016

A mother is not a person to lean on, but a person to make leaning unnecessary.

It’s the beginning of Spring and Mother’s Day is upon us once again.

How can we thank our mothers for everything they have done, and continue to do, for us? Moms make possible our very existence, they patch us up when we fall, make the best grilled cheese sandwiches. Taxi driver, handyman, chef, educator, mentor, organizer, referee, nurse, confessor,  bedtime story reader: the list goes on.

Some say commercialism has diluted and lessened the message of Mother’s Day. I say take every opportunity to honour your Mom, Granny, Bubbie, on this day and every day throughout the year.

In the spirit of Mother’s Day, here are some great iCraft picks for the Mom in your life.

Start the day off right with a charming Purple Flower Card from NJ Creative Cards.

I believe the most important gift you can give your Mom is a little bit of your time. Connect in some way no matter how far away you may be. Pick up the phone, or if you can, drop by to say hello.

May you and all the Moms you know enjoy this Mother’s Day!

It's so true. Being a mother and a grandmother, the gifts I have appreciated the most from my children & grandchildren are the things they put their time into. Whether it was a handmade card or clay handprint, they sit in my china cabinet next to the crystal and Limoges.

Even now, my friends and relatives love a gift of jewelry from me. They know that it was handmade, especially for them. Yesterday, I met my 90 year-old aunt for lunch and gave a bracelet I made, for her tiny wrist, in anticipation of Mother's Day. Of course, she loved it.
