Celebrating our Mothers with Mother’s Day Magic

Mother’s are such an important part of our lives. I was fortunate enough to grow up in an extremely close family with parents who encouraged my love of reading and writing from an early age. My father, an artist and WWII veteran who dabbled with words, passed away from cancer when I was thirteen. I was a “late in life baby” for my parents, so by the time my father died, my older siblings were already out of the house, two of them married. My mother and I grew even closer and she became my best friend until her death in 2012 at the age of 89. I miss her and my father dearly.

It is with pleasure that I present my latest guest, Daisy Banks, a contributing author to a collection of stories honoring mothers. I hope you will discover your own magic in this boxed collection. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to charity, as noted below.


From Daisy:

My thanks to you for showcasing the Mother’s Day Magic Boxed Set collection. I hope your blog readers enjoy the story tasters from this collection of stories.

Best wishes,
Daisy Banks

A message from Allyson R. Abbott.

I love to buy books as presents. I wanted to find a book that would let my mom know how much I appreciate her. As an author, I decided to write the story to say how much I love her. I told my friend what I had planned to do. Grace, also an author, wanted to do the same. We set out to write our two stories, but Grace suffers with MS and it became so bad she had to stop writing. I sent out an appeal to authors worldwide to write stories for Mother’s Day, and to donate 10% of every book sold to MS. My call was answered by 13 special authors and our Mother’s Day Magic box set was born. Read these beautiful stories and help stop a crippling disease––MS!

  2. Family, mothers especially, have an important place in a child’s life. For me my mother and grandparents on my mother’s side were the most important figures. They cultivated in me the love for reading, good music and arts. and above all protected me while they lived. I’m forever grateful to them!
    So nice for Daisy, and all the contributing authors, to let mothers know how much they love them! At the same time, helping stop a crippling disease––MS!
    Thank you, Mae, for bringing this set to our attention and kudos to the authors!


    • Isn’t it wonderful the memories we have of those who influenced our lives, Carmen? It sounds like you had very special family relationships. And you’re right–MS is such a cripple disease. I think it’s wonderful how the authors are donating to charity!


      • Yes, it was a strong one and you know what? I was just an adopted child. Never knew my biological mother. But it didn’t matter to me. My REAL mother was the one who brought me up.

      • Wow, I never realized that, Carmen. I got chills reading your comment. What an amazing bond you had with your REAL mother who adopted you.


  3. What an admiral endeavor. I miss my mother terribly (both parents passed when I was a teenager), so I totally understand the drive to write a tribute to mothers everywhere. That alone makes me want to buy the box set. Best of luck to all the authors included here. MS is such a worthy cause.


    • I remember being surprised when I saw your comment yesterday and was saddened to think you grew up without a mom. It’s wonderful that you are there for your daughter and her daughters, Susan. Those familial links are so strong!


    • Mom’s made the best listeners, didn’t they, Julie? I loved all the heart-to-hearts I had with my mom over the years, and miss her terribly. This is one boxed collection that I think is super special. 🙂


    • It sounds like we had a lot in common, Flossie. I’ve gathered from your blog how close you were with your mother. It’s so wonderful to have a relationship like that and to cherish those memories!
