Mother’s Day Gift: A Friendly Reminder~ May 8th, 2011


Mother’s Day, a time when we reflect on all those years,
When our mothers stood by our side and wiped away all our tears;
We thank you for graciously working so hard,
We hope you like your gift because you deserve more than a card;
There is always continuous love and appreciation, regardless of the day on the calendar,
So enjoy your gift with this gorgeous flower called Lavender. By Jacqueline Pikul 
-(Copy and Paste Poem on your card)

Close your eyes and breath deep, your senses with tell you you’re in Provence, France. It’s said to be the place where lavender originated from. AHHHHH! Lavender is the staple flower in this area. This delicate flower is appreciated because of its various aromatherapy qualities. Lavender reduces anxiety, helps with insomnia, and provides a calming and soothing environment.
