The cover photo is of myself with my daughter Kate hiking in Hawaii in 1990. To me, even though it has been thirty years ago, I can still picture her in my arms as a newborn and all the fun we had as she was growing up. Nothing about parenting is easy, but I never found anything in the world that has equaled the joy of being a parent. Being a Mom is a gift that keeps on giving because that unconditional love and the bond you share as a parent and a child trancends miles,  and circumstances and is the best of what this world has to offer. I think about my Mom every day even though we are states apart.  She has always been there to rescue me when I have fallen, to help me heal when I have been hurt, and to give me the strength to cope with difficult times. There is no substitute for that genuine love and caring, to me she has always been the perfect Mom–the one I strive to be.

Did you know that Mother’s were first recognized in 17th Century England? England celebrates the custom of Mothering Sunday in honour of Mother’s. In the United States, Julia Ward Howe a writer, abolitionist, and suffragist established Mother’s Day in 1872. Julia Ward Howe is best known for writing the words to “Battle Hymn of the Republic”. In 1911, President Woodrow Wilson made it a national holiday.

Please be patient, even though people have reservations we may not be able to seat them at their reserved time as we anticipate being very busy this weekend.
