Lovely Máthair

Mother’s Day is coming up soon. Your mathair is deserving of something significant and beautiful on her day. It is nice to get her a card, flowers or even breakfast. This year think about giving your mother something even more substantial than a meal and a note. Get her a piece of jewelry that she will always treasure instead!

The Mother Trinity Pendant is a customized necklace made specifically for each and every mother out there! First, you can choose from one to six birthstones to adorn this necklace. Most mothers will want to represent the number of children she has with their respective birthstones. In the center of the necklace is a stunning and clear trinity knot that serves as the anchor of this piece. Since mom is often such a central person in the lives of her children, the trinity knot becomes the ideal symbol that represents the past, present and future love for her family.

And as she glows with joy over her new piece of jewelry, give her something else that will truly make her feel appreciated.  A classic piece of literature will always go a long way in describing your feelings towards your mom. Here is a lovely passage to read aloud to your mom on this Mother’s Day. It’s not only sweet and sentimental, but it is also very Irish. And if you don’t feel like reading it aloud, write it down for her!

“A Mother’s Love is a Blessing” by: Thomas P. Keenan

An Irish boy was leaving
Leaving his native home
Crossing the broad Atlantic
Once more he wished to roam
And as he was leaving his mother
Who was standing on the quay
She threw her arms around his waist
And this to him did say


A mother’s love’s a blessing
No matter where you roam
Keep her while she’s living
You’ll miss her when she’s gone
Love her as in childhood
Though feeble, old and grey
For you’ll never miss a mother’s love
Till she’s buried beneath the clay

And as the years go onwards
I’ll settle down in life
And choose a nice young colleen
And take her for my wife
And as the babes grow older
And climb around my knee
I’ll teach them the very same lesson
That my mother taught to me

A mother’s love’s a blessing
No matter where you roam
Keep her while she’s living
You’ll miss her when she’s gone
Love her as in childhood
Though feeble, old and grey
For you’ll never miss a mother’s love
Till she’s buried beneath the clay

Happy Mother’s Day!
