I cannot believe it is almost Mother’s Day! I swear I just took down the Christmas decorations. But the flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping and another year is moving right along. Summer will be here before we know it!
This time of year is always bittersweet since my own mother passed away almost 25 years ago. She was taken from this world too early. But I take comfort in knowing I have the best guardian angel a girl could ask for. I love when people tell me I remind them of her. That is the best compliment I can receive. I’m a critical care nurse just like she was. I have modeled my adult life after the most caring, funny, fiercely loyal woman I had the chance to know, albeit brief.
Despite losing her too soon, I have found renewed love of the holiday since having a child of my own. It warms my heart to get those special gifts made by tiny hands to treasure for years to come. You know the ones I’m speaking of – the handprint or footprint designed pictures with the sentimental poems guaranteed to mess up your mascara. Since the schools have us covered on that front, let’s focus on what we as adults can make our mothers to honor them. What do you want to give your mom this year or even your best friend to honor HER as a mother? Let’s celebrate by lifting each other up as women! Mom is sure to love any of these Handmade Mothers Day Gifts!

I think my mom would have loved that Mason Jar Frame Vase! It would have looked perfect in her living room. I think the Mom Binder is another great idea! It’s a place where she can store those precious little pictures from the kiddos over the years! She can even add grandkid pictures and artwork to it as she moves into that stage in her life.
