Gifts with Meaning from Affirmagy

Is there a great little place where you like to shop?  You know, one of those places that you don't share with anyone else?  I can't believe I'm doing this, but I'm going to share one of mine. Affirmagy is one of those best kept secrets for meaningful gifts.  There, I said it.  The cat's out of the bag.  

I was first introduced to Affirmagy when my daughter, Liza, was born.  I can remember opening the front door one evening to find a package that felt like a baby blanket.  Great, just what we needed, another blanket.  But this one was different.  The soft, pink, fleece blanket was covered in affirmations that began with "The whole world welcomes my arrival."  I was so inspired by these words that I read them over and over again.  I wanted to wrap my daughter up in this blanket, so tight that her heart could hear the message.  I wanted her to know the gifts of possibility, peace, love, and calm.  Simply stated, it said everything I wished for my child.  

A few months later, I sent an Affirmagy blanket to a former student of mine who is fighting cancer with a courage like none other.   I continue to send them to people, especially moms, who have enriched my life with their passion and strength.  I'd encourage you to do it too!
