Let’s celebrate our moms!
Years ago a dear friend shared the neatest idea in regards to celebrating others. Any time it was someone’s birthday or a special occasion, she would share one reason she was celebrating that person. It was always so intentional and endearing, and I quickly adopted the tradition. This year for Mother’s Day, I have been spending time meditating on why I am joyfully celebrating my mom.
This year, amongst all the craziness of our world, I am celebrating my mom for being my constant. She is strong, selfless, a hard worker, and there for me for every single moment – hard or easy, big or small. She has been my best friend since day one and I truly cannot imagine doing life without her. This year, I wanted to get her a piece (or two) of jewelry that matched the reason I am celebrating her. I wanted jewelry that was timeless, joyful, and represented my mom being a constant light in my life.
The first thing that came to mind was a dainty cross ring I had seen at James Avery. The reason my mom is such a constant in my life is no doubt due to her rock solid faith. I felt like the cross ring was a timeless symbol of her faith and unconditional love for me. My mom is also a major fan of James Avery (we both have been since I was a little kid), so I knew that I couldn’t go wrong with something from them!
celebrate virtually with your mom:
The only hard part is that I couldn’t give her the ring in person. Despite my mom living in Chicago, we wouldn’t have been able to see each other even if we had wanted to due to shelter-in-place restrictions. So, I settled on the next best thing – a virtual celebration! With the free 2-day shipping James Avery is currently offering, my gift got there in no time and we got to celebrate together a bit early.
Nothing can replace seeing your mom in person, but there was something so sweet about seeing her smile and her face light up as she opened up her gift! She loves dainty jewelry as much as I do and she was so excited to have a new James Avery ring to add to her collection. She even sent me a picture wearing her new ring!
