As Mother's Day approaches this Sunday, May 9th, 2021, I can't help but reflect on my dear mother and the lessons she has taught me about life, love, and living. Seeing how so many of us were separated from our mothers during the pandemic last year, this year, it's more important than ever to spend time with her! Happy Mother's Day!

Exodus 20:12: "Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you."

Luke 1:46-48: "And Mary said, 'My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed.'"
