"Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit." -Napoleon Hill



Celebrate the wonderful lady who brought you into this world. She loves you and she cares very deeply for you, as you are a part of her. You have different personalities, talents, understanding, individual ways of doing things, but she can be a wonderful friend of yours if you let the relationship shine. Be good to your Mum and respect her life and all that she has done for you. Cherish her love and nurture her back.

Give her a little token of your appreciation or send her a heartfelt poem, message or card. Call her and let her know how much you love her.

Check out the YBe website and come into the store for perfumes, candles, poetry, silk scarves or some inspiring thoughts to send her way!!! You can also purchase a Gift Voucher so Mum can visit us here at YBe and enjoy the healing, ambient & inspiring atmosphere while she picks out something she likes.

Big hugs for all Mums out there including mine!!! Biggest hugs to my sister who has just become a Mum! … to a beautiful baby girl, Yay! LOVE you!!!
