Hi Friends, Do you have plans to celebrate and honor the special women in your life this weekend? It’s a beautiful time of the year in New Jersey, and I often plant annual flowers in my yard on Mother’s Day weekend. Geraniums, marigolds, and snapdragons are some of my favorites.
May is the month to celebrate moms and show our love and appreciation for all they have done for us. Read on for a special Mother’s Day Giveaway!
My mom, Dorothy Swain, was a wonderful artist, quilter, seamstress, and writer. She enjoyed decorating our home and making it a special place. From the time I was a young child, she put a paintbrush in my hands and encouraged my creativity. Mom used to sew most of my clothes. I remember seeing her bending over the sewing machine when I went to bed and then waking up to find a new dress finished and ready to wear. Mom passed away before my books were published, but I know she’d be happy to have another writer in the family.
My Mother-in-law, Shirley Turansky, is a great example and wonderful treasure! I have learned so much from her. She continues what my mom started, encouraging me to use my gifts and talents. She is a huge supporter of my writing and often tells her friends about my books. I’m looking forward to visiting her soon in California. I am very blessed to have these wonderful women in my life.
In honor of Mother’s Day, I’m giving away the pretty book and tea themed tote bag above and winner’s choice of a paperback copy of one of my books. Click on the covers to learn more about each book. To enter the giveaway choose one word from the illustration below that describes your mom and tell me why you appreciate her in a comment on this blog post. This giveaway is for US residents only and ends Monday May 15th, 9:00 pm Eastern time. I’ll choose a winner and contact you by email.
Until Next Time ~ Happy Reading,
