This Sunday is Mother's Day!
How do you tell your mom thanks for all she's done for you over the years? Of course, she did what she did out of love, because she wanted to, so does it require thanks? Can we ever know the depth of love, the amount of sacrifice? How do you let her know how much you love her, even though perhaps you gave her a rough time when you were young, or moved clear across the country, not understanding, in your excitement about your own life, how you were breaking her heart? Is there a child or a mother alive who doesn't feel guilt to one degree or another, and faces this question periodically?
ow nice that we have a special day, just for Mom, and for all mothers. It's different from her birthday, which is hers alone. Mothers Day celebrates all mothers, and often includes the aunts, special teachers, big sisters, mentors, who have been "like" moms - guiding us, coaxing us, loving us. On Mothers Day, each of these women feels a part of a big club, celebrated and honored for all those little things that often go unnoticed, but are the stock in trade of motherhood.
This year, we have a
Mother's Day Special
Buy a copy of the brand new Crave Seattle book, and receive 20% off
a Mother's Day Special Package of a Zents Body Oil and Lotion
in your choice of fragrance! That's a $14.00 savings!
These two Zents products work wonderfully well when mixed together in the palm of your hand, being 3 times more hydrating and lasting 5 times longer! And in May, Zents is donating 5% of the sale of these two products to the David Lynch Foundation.
Mom will enjoy perusing the Crave Seattle book to plan her next shopping trip or spa treatment - it's "...the ultimate guide to women-owned businesses in Seattle, featuring more than 100 entrepreneurs..." As an added bonus, there are discounts and savings for over 60 of the businesses at the back of the book, including one for 20% off at Crackerjack!
We have been receiving lots of exciting new clothing, jewelry, scarves, glass, you name it, just in time for Mother's Day and the first graduations. And don't forget to appreciate those teachers for their dedication!
Have you joined our Birthday Club? We'll send you a gift during your birthday month, and a surprise when you come into the store. Next time you visit us, ask to be signed up!
