Mother’s Day is Coming!
Mother’s Day is fast approaching and what better gift to give your Mom than one that will provide her and your family with peace of mind and relaxation? The HAINES System is simple way to guide you through designing your blueprint for the gathering, organizing, and maintenance of your important papers.
HAINES was my GG’s middle name, Frederick Haines Schmitz, who died last November at the age of 93. He was highly organized and had his papers in such a format that there was very little we had to do when he died. The gift he left us was incredibly clear on that day. Watching my Mom deal with his passing was difficult, but seeing the immense relief in her face when she realized that virtually everything was in order was priceless. It really was. She was so stressed about doing things properly and appropriately that day, but she did not have to be concerned with what GG wanted or did not want; he had made all those decisions years before.
A gift like this is not your typical gift, but that itself is refreshing. Flowers are beautiful, but they fade quickly. Candy is delicious, but is gone faster than the flowers. This year, consider writing your Mom a note to express your love and gratitude for her and give her The HAINES System – you can do together.

Dare to be different this Mother’s Day and really show your Mom how much you respect her wishes by completing The HAINES System with her, for her, and beside her.
