Mothers Day - What Would You Like To Receive?
Mothers Day is coming up soon and my inbox seems to be deluged with promotions. I started looking at some of them to see what is typically being offered.
Lots of great stuff, but most of it, I can't seem to relate to a lot. Young moms (ladies, I know how hard you work!) Or the grandmothers (ladies, you deserve something wonderful too!) But I guess I'm at a stage in my life, where I"m not relating to those as much.
I posted this fabulous emerald ring from Wexford Jewelers on Etsy. And although of course I love it, it's not in anyone's budget who would be giving me a gift. Besides, I guess I'm weird, but after all these years, I still prefer something that was handmade by my kids. My daughter has started painting delightful pen and ink with watercolor wash pictures. That would be a joy to receive. And my son is a whiz at anything phone, computer and technical, which I am so deficient in. They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but I'm still trying to keep up. (and if they didn't want to go handmade, I always love more glass!!)
So this leads me to ask, what's on your list? If you were receiving a gift- what would you want? I know that anything is appreciated, but tell me what in your life would be fun to receive.
