Happy Mothers' Day from Little Gems!
As Mothers' Day fast approaches, I ponder the unique experience of motherhood. No one could have prepared me for the overpowering and all encompassing love I felt for my baby when she finally arrived in my arms. I remember gazing at her, and feeling at once both a completion of self and a loss of self. As the days, weeks, and years fly by, there have been endless showers missed, meals grown cold or uneaten, sleepless nights, and entertainment forgone for the sake of my darling daughter... and I LOVED every minute of it!
This is the unique gift that mothers receive: it is the forced realization that the more we do for others, the happier we are. So here's to all of us mothers out there, whether our babies are newborns, off to college, or even having newborns of their own... Mothering Rocks!
This year for Mothers' Day, in honor of all of the dedicated hard work mothers do around the world, whether we work at home, work out of the home, or both, we all deserve a little treat now and then. So I'm offering everyone 20% off the eco-jewelry at all of my stores: littlegemsonline.com hyenacart.com/littlegems and etsy.com/shop/littlegems with purchases of $25 or more! Just use coupon code 'MOTHER10' at checkout. This coupon can be used throughout May 2010... so please feel free to pass it on to all of your friends.
Also, thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate Earth Day with me! It was a blast. This Saturday I'll be selling my eco-jewels at the Moraga Community Faire, so stop by to pick up some last minute Mothers' Day gifts! Find something for everyone: earrings, bookmarks, necklaces, pendants, bracelets, keychain fobs, and of course our famous Mothering Rocks nursing necklaces.
