Sunny Sunday

I think this is the first Sunday we have had without rain in a month. Things are sure getting green and the flowers are starting to bloom.

Seven more days until Mother's day. Celebrating Mother's Day doesn't have to be an expensive holiday. All Mom's really want is to spend time with their families and know they are appreciated and Loved.
Have Mom over for lunch, help plant and weed her flower bed, or just spend time with her. You'll make her day.

Happy May Day!

I remember when I was young we would make May baskets and leave them on the door of friends. We would ring the doorbell and run and watch when they opened the door and found our gift.
DO we still do that?
Has our much remembered traditions gone by the wayside?

May is the month we celebrate our Mother's, a day just for them. Children make pots out of the milk cartons that they have drank, to put a plant in so Mom can plant it in her flower garden. They draw flowers and suns on construction paper and print "I Love You" and their name so mom will know how much they love them and who it is from.
Mom will put the card in a place of honor on the fridge so she can look at it every day. After the right period of time she puts the year on the card and puts it in a safe place to be brought back out when the child is older and Mom is wondering where her little child is gone.

May is also Memorial Day when we honor our service men and women For their courage and dedication to keep us all safe. We hang our flags and salute when the Veterans march by during the parade.

Let's not just honor these on these days , but everyday.
