Mother’s Day Memories

Mother’s Day is Sunday 13 May and while we should recognise and appreciate our mothers each and every day, Mother’s Day allows us to make a concerted effort to really make our mums feel special.

The days leading up to the 13 May are particularly busy at Etched In Memories and we always feel grateful that we are a part of creating a special memory or moment for many of the mums out there.  Our Mother’s Day Packages always prove to be a popular choice with many of the bears and personalised pendants being scattered in all directions throughout Australia and beyond.

Remember the quality of the pendant engraving is only as good as the quality of the photograph so here is a reminder about how to take a great photo for engraving.  The photograph you choose is a reminder of a particular moment – it could be as special as this summer night memory captured here, the birth of your child or a special holiday or outing.

And while the path of any relationship is never smooth, with plenty of ups and down and even moments of forgiveness, Mother’s Day allows you to focus on the good times and celebrate the special bond of mother and child.

An engraved pendant is a personal gift which continues to last well beyond Mother’s Day and for many years to come.  Although in reality there really is no gift that you could give your mum that could ever equal the gift of life she gave to you.

I love this quote and thought I would share it with you – “A mother understands what a child does not say.”  And for this reason alone, Mother’s Day, as commercialised as it has become, deserves to be celebrated.

Remember Me

Take my hand and tell to me,

All that you would wish to be,

Show the landscapes of your heart,

Map the journey love may start.

Hard against the shifting sand,

Lie the signposts of that land,

In which the contours of the dream,

Make nightly visions holy seem;

Dream that once upon your knee

You entertain a lion to tea.

Quantum physics says to us

We shall dissolve in atomic fuss;

Remember me when all is still?

Of course I will, of course I will.
