A Perfect Mother's Day Gift: Mom's Space
by Sonya Weiss
As a mom, you wear many hats. Housekeeper, cook, referee, activity and errand chauffeur and much more. Busy taking care of loved ones, your days are filled from morning to night. Unlike the Energizer Bunny, you do need to recharge your batteries.
What better way than creating your own private space? It can be a corner of a room in the house-put up a dividing screen to separate the space from the rest of the room- add a comfortable chair or sofa, candles, soft music, a stack of books or hobby items.
My favorite is a backyard serenity garden. Make it completely your zone. No kids or pets allowed. Fence or block off part of the yard--could be on the side of the house. Create a mini water fountain--the soothing sounds of water running over rocks creates a sense of tranquility. Plant your favorite flowers, add a chair, an umbrella for shade, a glass of lemonade or sweet tea and relax.
Happy Mother's Day.

About Sonya Weiss
From the time she was a child, Sonya spun stories to entertain herself and her siblings. Once she graduated high school, she put her writing aside and attended college where she studied Secondary Education, majoring in English. The writing bug never quite left her and once she had children, Sonya would write stories for their enjoyment.
A few years ago, her oldest daughter persuaded her to send a children's short story to an editor and to Sonya's astonishment and delight, the story sold. In April of 2003, she won Harlequin's Writing Round Robin contest. Since then, her work has appeared on various online websites such as http://www.pregnancytoday.com as well as in her local newspaper.
Sonya currently resides in the beautiful state of South Carolina with her husband and four children and works as a writer.
