Are you fortunate enough to still have your Mother or that Mother type figure in your life? If so, I am guessing when you go to visit her, she has that sparkle in her eye because she is so happy to see you. 

My Mom will have been gone seven years the end of June. She was in assisted living and then the nursing home the last four months of her life. In May of that year, she had some mini strokes and didn't always recognize us when we went to see her. One day when I was helping her eat lunch, she got that sparkle in her eye. Whenever I think of that moment, I smile because for that moment she knew who I was.

My Mom had the biggest sparkle in her eye when she knew all of us five girls were coming home for a weekend with our families. My Dad passed away in 1999, so she loved having company. The more commotion, the better and there was always room for one more at the table.

I created my Swarovski Crystal Necklaces for Mother's Day presents to go with my Swarovski Crystal Earrings. The sparkle of  the Swarovski crystal stones that I use to make the Swarovski Crystal Jewelry reminds me of that sparkle in her eye. If your Mother or Mother type figure isn't with you, this is a great Mothers Day gift for yourself to remember that special lady in your life.

Three out of my four sisters and spouses were able to visit my Mom with my husband and myself on her last Mother's Day. We created a book for her of the memories from us and our families. There was a page with a photo of each person and their memories. My Mom's eyes just sparkled when she saw the book. I only wish we would have done it sooner. Remember to take the time to do the things with your Mom now instead of waiting. We never know how long we have with our loved ones.

Be sure to check out my Swarovski Crystal Jewelry for your Mother's Day presents. If you are a Mom, celebrate the day by purchasing a set for yourself. We all deserve a treat once in a while.
