Hope you have a wonderful day with your family.
Please think about all the good you have in your life and how much good you do for others by participating in Handmade Especially for You.
Mother’s Day is an especially difficult time for abused women and their children. This family-oriented occasion makes them remember what they left that was good in their previous life, even if it was filled with pain and violence. The shelters for abused women to which we donate our comfort scarves always have a Mother’s Day celebration for the women, to help them ease their pain and get through what otherwise would be a very sad day.
We are so lucky. We have received so much in our lives. We have a lot to give, and we give it!
Thank you so much.
I’m thinking about all of you who make Handmade possible. I’m thinking about the women (and children) in the shelters who have so little but hope to have more. I’m thinking about my husband, my family and my friends who have enriched my life and made Mother’s Day, an otherwise stationary store holiday, a meaningful occasion for me.
