If you have a mom, Mother’s Day is an important holiday. It’s the day you celebrate the woman who gave you life and/or raised you. If you are a mom, it’s the day you celebrate the love you and your children have for each other, and a chance for them to (hopefully) recognize and appreciate all that you do for them. Perhaps no gift can ever recognize the love, sacrifice, and hard work of a mother. But you have to try, right?
If you’re a military spouse, Mother’s Day may have a special meaning for you. Perhaps you gave birth during a deployment, bringing your baby into the world while your partner was thousands of miles away. Or maybe you waited years before becoming a mother, trying to time your pregnancy during a shore duty or other time when your service member would be around. Perhaps you are the mother of a service member, counting the months until you can see your child and hug them again. If you are going through a deployment now, you’ll be celebrating Mother’s Day solo, taking care of the kids on your own.
These moments deserve special recognition and celebration. A beautiful way to give tribute to a mom is with mother’s jewelry.
Jewelry is a perfect Mother’s Day gift for military spouses
After I had our second child, I knew I wanted a necklace with their birthstones. The months of their births meant so much to me and were part of our story. But I also knew that we would probably have more children, so I didn’t want to order any custom jewelry that would become incomplete once we had another baby. I was so touched when my husband came up with a solution: he ordered a necklace with birthstone charms that we could add to over the years.
It turned out to be a wonderful gift that has been added to several times. We eventually had two more children, so we added two additional birthstones. When I published my first book, he gave me a charm shaped like a book. To honor our 10th wedding anniversary, he found a charm that symbolized our relationship. And now that he has completed his 7th deployment, I might want to add a bead to honor all the deployments we have been through together! The necklace has become a story of our love, of my journey as a wife and mother, and of our family.
