For Mother’s Day as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias® I purchased some Bigelow Tea and other items to donate to our church for special gifts.
Earl Grey Tea with my grandma. Cozy Chamomile Tea to help reduce heartburn during 4 of my pregnancies. Red Raspberry Herb Tea in the summer with the girls. Bigelow Tea is always on hand here in our home. Naturally, Bigelow made it’s way into our Mother’s Day celebration as well. We live in a small town. In fact, if you come visit me, you may think you have landed in Mayberry. Friendly postmen who deliver mail by hand, streets ringing with the laughter and play of children, yards that are always beautiful and neatly trimmed and of course, our church. It just so happens that my dad is the pastor at our church. Each year as part of our Mother’s Day celebration he gives away a few special gifts. Last year, I purchased some lovely chocolates and donated them. This year I asked if I could put together some goodies once again. I took the kids with me and we visited our local Walmart. While driving we discussed some different possibilities. Immediately upon entering we made our way to the Tea department. The girls made a beeline to the Bigelow section and chose their favorites.
Two boxes was not enough so they chose several more. It was lots of fun finding the different flavors. I had a good laugh when my 8 year old said, “Why would anyone buy Sweet Dreams tea for a mom. Moms work hard and are always tired.” Ha!
We wanted some other fun items to go with the Bigelow Tea so we selected some giant chocolate bars, some delicate tea cookies and of course, travel mugs.
The girls have excellent taste and did a wonderful job choosing items any mom would love to receive. I let the girls do most of the choosing because I feel it is so important to teach the about giving back. Even our two year old son was able to make some choices along the way. After leaving the store, we dropped all the goodies off to my dad. My mom packaged them all up in some beautiful bags.
During church this morning, all the ladies got to put their name in a basket. At each service dad chose a winner. During first service an elderly lady won! It was such a special moment because none of her children were with her. She was thrilled with the Bigelow Tea and all the other goodies. In second service a lady won who had just gone through a pretty painful back surgery. I know she felt very lucky and pampered to receive her bag as well. Now that church is over, I am relaxing with a mug of Bigelow Green Tea and feeling incredibly thankful for my four blessings.
