$5 Friday: Mothers Day!

I am so grateful that we have this one day a year to celebrate and honor the women who raised us. Today we need to say “Thanks”, because the position of being a Mom isn’t an easy one. It’s difficult, demanding, exasperating and exhausting and — surprise! — those who mother us take it on willingly.  Being a mother can’t even be described in the dictionary and is the hardest job in the world! Our mothers are selfless, dedicated, and deserve to be spoiled today. Happy Mothers day to my very special mom, Nancy Haacke, who is the most amazing mom, grandma, wife, designer, and so many other roles. All moms take on many roles!

Because of our special mothers we are giving you two $5 deals! May is also graduation month so our two deals are our Graduation E2E and the Forget Me Knot E2E! I thought is would be fun to look up the meaning of the “Forget me not” flower, and it happens to go PERFECTLY with our mothers. Here are a few of the things I learned the Forget me not symbolizes:

  • A connection that lasts through time
  • Fidelity and loyalty in a relationship, despite separation or other challenges
  • Reminders of your favorite memories or time together with another person
  • Growing affection between two people
  • Helping patients with Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Caring for the poor, disabled, and needy

The Germans coined the name used for this flower.  There’s a myth of two lovers walking along the Danube River first seeing the bright blue blossoms. The man retrieved the flowers for the woman, but he was swept away by the river and told her not to forget him as he floated away. Whether the story is true or not, it’s certainly made the Forget Me Not a lasting symbol of remembrance. Today let us all remember every mom, whether still here with us or not, with honor, respect, and love forever.

Of course our Free Printables are beautiful Mothers Day quotes for you to use as cards or a gift in a frame. Happy Mothers Day!
