5 Mother’s Day Gifts Guaranteed to Make Her Smile

We all say “Happy” Mother’s Day, but for me it rarely ended up being a happy day.

Like last year, I started stressing days before about what gift would be the best for my money. Then I got to the flower store late and was left to weed out a withering, semi-alive bouquet. cheerful happy mothers day

So by the time I saw my mother, I was frustrated with my horrible Mother’s Day preparation that had me in a “leave me alone” attitude.

But, now I think back to all the wonderful things my mom has done for me. Starting with hours of painful labor, caring for all my cuts and scratches, commiserating with all my heartbreaks, and cleaning mounds of dirty smelly laundry, she has always been there for me.

So instead of giving those cliché cards and gifts that don’t show my full appreciation, I found gifts that put a smile on her face and I think can do the same for your mom.

1.) A compassionate idea is to help out those in need in her honor. Some charities I donate to are:
Heifer International
Big Brother/Big Sister of America
Doctors Without Borders
Oxfam America

2.) The power of aroma affects mood and provides a little lift whenever needed. Some of my favorites are Hope, Joy, Inspiration and Motivation. They’re “delicious” and make you feel like a million bucks!

3.) Guess what put a smile on Oprah’s face on her last birthday? Snatam Kaur’s music!  My favorite CD is Liberation’s Door.

4.) If you’re a yogi like me, why not share a Private Session with your mom? I have found it to be a great way to connect and raise vibrations together.

5.) There are a growing number of people, who are no longer willing to accept “business as usual.” They’re looking for a NEW business model for success where they experience the “sweet spot” in business (and in life) that blends passion and purpose with profit. If that’s your mom, we recommend this one- Conscious Entrepreneurs!

Wishing you and your mom a truly happy Mother’s Day!

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
