A Mother’s Work is Never Done…

We should all appreciate, value, respect and show some love for our mothers every day, but let’s face it… they are the first one’s to get lost in the shuffle.  Mom’s are great at being in the background.  Do you thank her every day when you magically have clean underwear in your drawer?  Or a clean spoon to eat your breakfast cereal every morning? Or that extra five bucks she hands you on your way out the door?  Nope.  And who reminds her every year that your birthday is around the corner?  Or how does she always seem to make your favorite pie at Christmas?  Or never forget your shirt size? Or your favorite color?  Mystery.  And listen up husbands…if you have children, more than likely, your wife makes your life just a little bit easier as well. Am I right?

Some of this probably isn’t what makes a mother such a great mom, but still, where would we be without her? And no need to get cosmic either….the simple truth is moms are pretty spectacular.  If there’s only one day a year set aside to recognize them and all the wonderful things they painlessly seem to do for us, then we better make it a spectacular day for them!

Stuff Etc can help you get a head start on that this year!  Check out Iowa City’s latest Silent Auction dedicated to Mother’s Day.   In this one auction, you will find SIX Isabel Bloom pieces, TWO unique stone necklaces, the most beautiful Bavarian tea set I’ve ever seen, a must-have Coach purse and so many other items any mother would love to have!  Click here to catch a glimpse of a few items and the full list of what’s available for bid.  Better yet, stop by soon to place your personal bid before someone else beats you to it!
