I hope everyone had a wonderful Passover or Easter, which ever one you happen to celebrate. I realize it is a belated wish, however, a wish worth giving is never really late. We were very busy running around making beautiful things for everyone, to help adorn their homes, and add a festive touch to their holidays. So now you will find us catching up on missed sleep, and getting ready for the next holiday, which is Mother's day.

I like Mothers day, and no its not because I happen to be a mother myself. I am very lucky, not only do I have a terrific mother, I also have a great relationship with her. She is my teacher, my confident and my friend. Unfortunately, it being always busy at work, I don't normally get to spend time with her on mothers day itself. But that's ok, she understands, and yes I too give her flowers, because it is a great way to say I'm thinking of you on this special day, even if I can't be with you.

If you think about it, there is no better gift this time of year. We all need to see beautiful, colorful, happy things after such a long and tedious winter, and very rainy spring. There are few things that are almost always guaranteed to make a mother smile, and flowers has to be one of the top ones. Ok winning lotto numbers would work really well too.

One thing I have noticed through my years working here, and that is that the messages that people come up with on the cards, well for the most part, are boring, and same old same old. With that in mind, here are a few things, sentiments that I have come up with, feel free to use any you like, and if you don't like any, that's ok too. The important thing to remember is that the message should reflect you, and be heartfelt, because, hey, its for your mom, she deserves nothing less.:

-Happy Mother's day to the one who is always on my mind, and forever in my heart.

-I may not be great with words, but I would like to say thank you mom for everything you do.

-One day, its simply not enough to celebrate someone as special as you.

-May I one day be celebrated as someone as special as you.

-No matter what I may have done, or said, you were always there for me, thanks mom

-I realize as I get older, that being a mother is not always easy. So I want to say thanks for putting up with everything, I love you.

-Flowers are Mother Nature best creation, and you deserve nothing else but the best

-Happy Mothers day to a mom who deserves being honored and loved 364 more times a year

-Happy wonderful, beautiful, terrific and special mothers day. It must have been created especially for you.

Well I hope it helped a little bit. Have a wonderful celebration with your mothers, grand mothers and great grand mothers, they deserve a day to be pampered and loved.
