Sentimental Sunday - Traditions
Last week I spent time, as we all did, remembering my Mother. With all of the current hoop-la surrounding Mother's Day, I wondered why I had no memories of Mother's Day Traditions in my family. I do remember Mom receiving handmade gifts and jewelry or perfume from Woolworths. Maybe the fact that my Dad and two of my brothers had birthdays between May 8 and May 14 had something to do with it. May is also First Communion season. May altars for the Virgin Mary were also traditions in our house. With all these demands on Mom's time, I'm sure she was never forgotten. Love you Mom!
