Mother’s Day

roses2-0010_RT8-600aMy mother has been gone now many years, but before she left she bequeathed me an extraordinary life lesson.  She taught me that to be respected,   one must possess the gift of curiosity and compassion.   Truly one of the classiest woman I have ever known, my mother taught me that true beauty was in understatement and the ability to notice the quiet elegance visible in simple details.  Every Mother’s Day, I would give her a single rose in lieu of a lavish bouquet.  She always told me that this was the best way to recognize the true power in this flower.  She said; pay attention to the individual petals and the way that their soft, silky surfaces embrace to form a perfect union.  A rose blossom is not unlike a mother and her child, bound together until the bud is ready to burst open.  This delicate harmony suggests a true state of grace.

If I had the opportunity to give my mother a gift this Mother’s Day, I would send her this Beautiful Dreamer  PJ (139941) from the Midnight by Carole Hochman Collection.  It recalls the perfection of an individual spring flower.  The artistry of this capri pajama is in the details that Carole uses to define the female form.  It is the signature of the Midnight brand.  Women of all ages are drawn to the graceful and simple drape of the sensual modal fabric.  The comfortable fit and casual sophistication of this bright coral lounge set is available in missy and plus sizes.  There is not a mother I know; from 25 to 65 (or more) who would not feel loved wearing this gift.carolhochmanpj sw

    Ellen, this is PERFECT. My mom loves pajamas, but tends to wear the drab flannel kind and she’s really actually very fashionable. I ordered her the Beautiful Dreamer set in Charcoal.
