The Lace Place... your ribbon boutique: Wishing you all a very Happy Mother's Day!!

Wishing you all a very Happy Mother's Day!!

This is for all of you who I come in contact with on a daily basis.  Women of all backgrounds and walks of life, Brides, Young Moms, Not yet Moms, Grandmothers and everyone else.
I get inspired by you all everyday. I love seeing the projects you do and often tell myself how amazed I am at the business of your lives with children, etc, but yet you have the time and energy to focus on the details of your lives and projects and decorate it with ribbon!
I love the conversations we have and getting to know what is going on in your lives. I am always reassured, in spite of the awfulness of of what is going on in the world, that we are lucky to be living in a healthy vibrant community. I am touched by my customers, who come in here talking about the help they do for others. Decorating with yellow ribbons because someone they know is coming home, staying up at Primary Children's Hospital tending to a sick child and feel the need to keep busy with your hands and making things out of ribbons, usually for other sick patients. I know a lot of what you do extends far beyond this modest ribbon store. I am just thankful to be a small part of each and everyone of your lives.  I wish you all the best Mother's Day, spending time with your families and cherishing every moment, because it isn't really about that one day that is special, having a mom makes EVERYDAY special:)

This is one of my favorite poems, I am sure you have read it before, but I would like to share anyway.



Audrey Hepburn's Beauty Tips

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived,  reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.
Remember, If you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the  figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!
