Mother's Day Giveaway...

**This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for the entries!**

As much as I looove being a mom, on Mother's Day my mind always goes to other women -
Women who have lost children or never had the chance to become mothers.

All women deserve to be celebrated!
So today, if you're a woman, celebrate it.
Take a long bath, have a glass of wine, treat yourself to a pedicure, watch a girly movie, do whatever it is that makes you happy.

Laugh. Enjoy time with family and friends.
Play in the sun.

The Boy wrote a poem for me and I'll share it with you.

Roses are Red
Farms are Fun
Now it's time
To play in the sun!




Happy Mother's/Woman's Day!!

Enjoy today.

(And to my own mom, I love you! Your gift is in the mail. You'll probably get it tomorrow. Because you know how prompt I always am...)

Update: Let's do a giveaway!

Win a $30 gift certificate to The Rusted Chain!
1. Leave a comment to enter.
2. Blog it, tweet it, facebook it for additional entries. (leave seperate comments for each of these.)

I think it's also important to remember those whose moms are no longer with them. What a bittersweet day for them as well!

PaisleyJade said...

I totally agree with you - mums are spesh but I think all women should be celebrated!!!

PaisleyJade said...

I totally agree with you - mums are spesh but I think all women should be celebrated!!!

Graceful said...

I agree -- today I've been thinking about women who desperately would love to become moms, and how I often take motherhood for granted. The reading from 1 Samuel we read this morning drove that point home as well.

Happy Women's Day!

Today I wore the gift a dear friend gave to me from your store. I had the names of my boys close to my heart. I wore it proudly, and every now and then my boys would touch it and say their names. I am honored to be a mom, to be loved, and to love without limits.

Heather @ Gerber Days said...

You are so awesome to remember the mom's that have lost children, or are having trouble conceiving. I hadn't thought of that, but it's definitely important to remember them!

Your sons poem is so stinkin' cute!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Your favorite Aunt LuLu said...

Thank you Beki for reminding everyone that all women should be celebrated on Mother's Day.

At 20, I was told I would not or would have a hard time conceiving children. I have not been in a committed relationship since I was 22 but I have also not thought much about wanting/having children.

Until this year. My best friend is having her first child and being the party planner that I am, I wanted to host a shower for her and her princess in waiting.

Yesterday and today I have been a trainwreck thinking about what I may not have and the women who do not relish every moment of having a child grow inside them.

My niece who is also my Goddaughter was sweet enough to give me a simple kiss on the cheek and suck the life out of you hug. She knew exactly what it would take for me to know how blessed I am to have her.

So even though I'm not actively trying to become a mother, I feel all women should be treated like one at least one day a year.

A Mother is someone who dreams for you, but then lets you chase the dreams you have for yourself and loves you just the same if not more. A salute to Mothers everyday!!

dear beki: would you PLEASE tell mr random number picker man to pick me? thanks!

i love this post! ;) i, too, was thinking of friends who have not had the chance to become mommies yet or have lost kids.

hope you had a great mothers day!

Shannon said...

Happy Mother's Day! I got to spend the day with my mom, my sister's and my little girl.
I love the poem and I thought of those who have lost a child or could not have a child all day, it was nice of you to talk about it.
Shannon @ formysweetdaughter.blogspot.com

Christina said...

You're so thoughtful!
And I, too, am prompt. In fact, I, twice this last year, bought cards to send out for some big holiday, and both times forgot that I bought the cards so far ahead of time and didn't find them until the day before the actual holiday. Twice. Ugh.
I think the Mother's Day cards may be one day late this year. But that's better than three weeks, right? (Easter, this year. True.) :)

Codruta said...

I love your shop, and even if I don't win I'll buy something this year.

I could really use some new jewelry. The Blessed necklace is the ONLY necklace my baby girl can't destroy. Hope I win :)

What a great thought and way to celebrate women. I too think about others who have not been mothers or lost a child, as I spent many mother's days praying for my own. Thanks for the post!
