The other day my precious friend Lois Graham emailed me, and Lois mentioned that she was excited because her sweet husband had bought her a new website theme for Mother’s Day. I laughed hard at this, because I could so relate to wanting something for my business for gifts anytime!
Long gone are the days since I asked Ray for an emerald or a diamond for a present. Now great gift ideas are more like a new USB headset mic! And, in fact, I did indulge myself this week and bought a new Genesis child theme for the website for my ebook, which will be unveiled to you soon. (Excited? Stay tuned!)
For Mother’s Day, Ray bought me a unique necklace, that you can also twist into a bracelet or a headband. He unexpectedly blessed me today with a pretty, round glass vase filled with fresh baby’s breath and a single cut, red rose inside (roses are my favorites), and a soft, little stuffed animal – a red and white fox. The fox had a tiny card attached to it, on which he creatively wrote, “You are still a foxy mother.” (Yes, I REALLY liked this!)
Apparently, Lois and I aren’t alone these days in our desire for gifts relating to business. Kelly McCausey wrote about this topic in a post on her Work At Home Moms site, What Does A Work-At-Home Mom Want For Mother’s Day?
In fact, an Oxgen Network Survey shows that women prefer a cellphone to designer shoes, and a little white Ipod over a little black dress.
But hey, it’s all good! And I wouldn’t trade my little fox and the cute card and red rose for anything!
One of the greatest gifts God has ever given me is motherhood. I am so thankful to God for our beautiful, precious daughters. They are my true gift every Mother’s Day!
