Why I’m Grateful To My Mother
With Mother’s Day around the corner, I wanted to talk about celebrating that special woman in your life. It’s a day to pamper and spoil her with acts of kindness, no matter how big or small.
As a family, we celebrate by coming together for a delicious home-cooked Lebanese lunch to honour the most influential woman in our lives. Along with my siblings, it is our time to create something beautiful for the woman who raised us as a ‘thank you’.
Gratitude is at the heart of this meal and there’s always a distinct familiarity to the environment and the feelings associated with this day. My mother is my biggest inspiration in life and she was the one who instilled in me the importance of celebrating your uniqueness. She is genuine, resilient and loving – always herself.
My mother taught me that a person’s mind should be the most beautiful thing about them and that a positive, clear headspace will translate into a beautiful exterior. She showed me the importance in valuing both my inner and outer beauty, which then inspired me to bring All Saint Clinic and Le Petit Saint to what they are today – beauty havens for those looking to nourish their minds just as much as their faces and bodies.
I hope that you will enjoy quality time with your families this Mother’s Day, and there is no better way to do that than by enjoying a beautiful meal together around a dinner table full of laughter and joy.
