Of Love and Being a Mother

"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my Angel Mother" -

Abraham Lincoln

Motherhood is the greatest blessing any woman can BE blessed with. Motherhood is a symbol of love, kindness and forgiveness. A mother's touch is the first human touch in a child's life. A mother's love is a never ending love for her children. Being a mother means loving someone more than you will ever love yourself. It brings you pride, joy, a few tears and heartaches. But of all the positions there are in the world, Being a Mother is by far the most rewarding gift that could ever BE Bestowed on a woman.

"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in the sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts."

Washington Irving

The first Mother's Day was celebrated in the United States on May 10, 1908 in West Virginia. In 1914 President Woodrow Wilson declared the first National Mother's Day Celebration.

Thursday evening I had the great pleasure and privilege of sharing a Mother's Day Celebration with Amanda, Cassidy, Lauren, Jennifer and my Mother. We celebrated with a banquet served by two guys that we all love very much, Rick and Spencer. The theme for the celebration was 'To Be'. There were flowers and bumble bees everywhere. We delighted in some very good food and some really great desserts. Mmmmm Mmmm Good. Here are a few snapshots of the evening.

Much to my surprise, Rick is helping in the kitchen !

The two handsome servers.

Although our servers were very sweet, this is the table of sweets we all were drooling over.

The evenings program.

Remember to spread kindness where ever you go. The seeds will grow and nurture and change our society.
