Honoring Mom

The second Sunday of May is a day set aside to honor Mom… and Grandma too. A time to thank them for all they do and all they’ve done.

An occasion to honor, celebrate, and remember.

A day to listen and perhaps learn a little more about their story.

Ann Taylor once said:

“Who ran to help me when I fell,
And would some pretty story tell,
Or kiss the place to make it well?
My Mother.”
