From Left to Right: My Niece, My Mum, My sister
Mothers Day is coming up here in the UK pretty soon---10th March to be exact. I always tend to forget the UK dates because I'm American and we've always celebrated Mothers Day in May.
I dont get to see my mum very much because I live over here and Ive never been blessed with children, so the word Mother has never really taken a personal meaning for me. But I can tell you about my mum.
She's the glue that has held our family together and always makes time for all of us. Even with me being across the pond and thousands of miles away, we still talk on the phone and on Facetime and Skype. She's always worked incredibly hard, soooooo hard. She's been a teacher of special needs kids for over 37 yrs and put such long hrs in at work but would still come home to all of us and keep the family going.
She's not afraid to have fun as you can see from the picture below. It was freezing and her knees probably hurt her because of her arthritis, but she knew that my niece wanted to fly kites....so they did.
My mum was thrilled when I joined Scentsy (she already had warmers at her house) and was excited what it meant for me and my life. She's encouraged me through it all and has always said to keep going even when I've been so discouraged at times with it. I could hear her screaming down the other end of the phone in excitement when I managed to earn the incentive trip for Scentsy at the end of Jan.
This is what mum's do.....they love in the happy and rough times and I dont care what age you are....there's nothing better after a very hard day to hear the sound of your mum on the other end of the phone.
I am pretty grateful for my mum as I know all of you guys are for yours. Of course if I can get the pennies together, I'm sending my mum Scentsy for Mothers Day. I've got the perfect gift idea and no I'm not going to say because my mum reads this blog and I dont want to ruin the surprise. :)
If you want to show appreciation for your Mom/Mum/grandmother this Mothers Day, Scentsy is the perfect gift. Look for the new Spring Scentsy UK catalogue to appear on the website from 1 March as there's some gorgeous new products. If you'd like to save money on shipping or get anything at 10% off, please contact me ASAP as this month there's a SCENTSY SALE!!! and I'll be putting in a personal order on Monday for Scentsy and I can add orders to that. x
If you need ideas for Scents....my personal favourite from the new catalogue is Lilacs and Violets, but feel free to ring me on 02086921815 and we can discuss what Scents you're mum would love.
