Mother's Day Printable Bookmarks and Mother's Day Children's Books

Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful mothers out there. I wanted to not only make something special for you, but I also wanted to make something your children, students, grandchildren, etc. could make for the special Mother figures in their lives. My girls and I had so much fun making these bookmarks together. There are two sets of book marks that are ready to be given away, and there is one set of bookmarks that you can have your children decorate themselves. Scroll down to see samples, a tutorial, wonderful Mother's Day Children's Book suggestions, and the link to save, download, and print this file.
Mothers I am so lucky to have not only have the most amazing, giving Mother in my life, but I also have two very dear grandmother's that have had a great influence on my life as well. I am now fortunate to have 2 Mother in Laws who are wonderful too. These amazing women have blessed my life immensely and I can only hope that someday I can become the Mother's that they are. I love you all! I am also so lucky to be a Mother myself. I know that there are some women who have not had the opportunity to be one yet, as well as other's who maybe don't feel like being a mother is their calling in life. I do know that I am so thankful to a Heavenly Father who knew me well enough to know that there isn't anything that I would rather be in life than a Mother. I hold the calling of a Mother so sacred and I thank God everyday for blessing me with my two little angels. These are Little Red's (4 years old) illustrations she did for her bookmarks. So darling! I love our family picture and the little teddy bears. Both of my girls Love to draw & I think that they are such cute little artists.
Our daughter's were both miracle babies, and have brought so much joy to our family. This is one of Little Blonde's (6 years old) Bookmarks. I love how she drew the two of us.
To all of you Mother's out there, hug your children, give them kisses, tell that you love them each and everyday, speak softly to them, remember to tell them the good things they do each day, teach them how to love others and to be kind to others, and enjoy the precious spirits that God has sent to you to watch over. Like they all say, they really do grow up too fast. My little ones are only 4 & 6 years old, but they are already growing up faster than I would like.

Thanks for letting me open up my heart to you a little and once again, "Happy Mother's Day".
