For Mother’s Day: Hankies Blessed By Nuns

“Is your mom mom-ish?” I overheard my older son ask another boy once. When he said it, I felt my own mom-ishness presented to me as a high concept. One wouldn’t want to be too mom-ish, would one? A little mom-ishness goes a long way. But now the most mom-ish of all days is approaching. May 14 is Mom-ish, I mean Mother’s Day.

As you cast around for gift ideas, you might want to glance at a website my friend (and first editor!) Carol Edgar showed me. Holy Orders solely markets merchandise made by people in monastic orders. On its homepage an animated nun on a tractor will greet you, an icon that nicely captures this website’s sweet spirit.

Anyway, the most mom-ish item here is this handkerchief with “Bless You” embroidered on it! But poke around here to find other goodies, some of them edible.

Cool site. Especially like the gregorian chant playing with the labrynith, and the fact that they put a blessing tag on their pets. As for the $50 face cream, my husband reminds me that maybe we can’t afford that level of blessing……..>
