I stopped in a home improvement store earlier today for stain swatches and potentially new plants. I always cruise the plant clearance section first because this particular store always discounts plants that are still in okay enough condition that they can be planted or cared for and I see results.

I hope you were all able to enjoy Mother’s Day, spending it with those that meant the most to you. Whether it was the woman who gave birth to you, adopted you, or raised you; each woman in your life is special and deserving of the title “Mother.” This, of course, extends to those newer Moms out there who are newly pregnant or have young children. Enjoy the ride, take too many pictures and spend as much time as you possibly can with them. They grow up too fast, and you can’t makeup for the lost time.
With all the special gifts we can exchange over any holiday, the best gift to give is self esteem. Too many women of all ages are suffering, sometimes in silence due to not feeling adequate. You are all capable, beautiful, smart, and worthy! Remind yourself each day, and remind those wonderful women around you too. Let’s work hard to keep that gift going! Fresh flowers are always a bonus too.
