Happy Mother’s Day Weekend!


As a Father of three, I don’t think I’ve read truer statements. ðŸ˜Š 

The fact of the matter is, none of us would be here if not for our Mother. For those of us whose Mothers are no longer with us, I hope, like me, you are comforted by your fondest memories with your Mother. If Mom is still with you, make sure to treat her extra special this Sunday! 

Whether your Mother was biological, adopted, or invited into your life circumstantially, the lessons we learned from these special people are the lessons that stay with us for life. Take the time this weekend to remember yours and recognize the Mother of your children - don’t forget that she deserves a hug as well!
