Happy Mother’s Day! I hope all the moms out there are enjoying agreat day with their families. If you’re lucky enough to have yourmom, it doesn’t take much to make her happy. Give her a call, go byfor an unplanned visit, that’s worth more than any gift you can buyfor her. All your life you will meet people who will say the words”I love you” but nobody means it quite like your mom. She’s like afireman, she runs in when everybody else abandons you. When youdon’t get that invitation to the party or you blew the ballgame,she’s there, wanting to make it better. If your mom has gone to thebig kitchen in the sky, take a moment to remember all the hugs andlove she gave. Smile a little and know if there’s a way for her tobe your angel, she’s done that! God bless good “Mamas!”

Quote of the week: “A mother is the truest friend we have, whentrials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes theplace of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in oursunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will shecling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels todissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to ourhearts.” – Washington Irving.
