The theme for May is "Celebrate Mom!".
Last Mother’s Day, my kids gave me their picture in a frame made out of puzzle pieces. “We love you to pieces!” was scrawled in black ink along the bottom. I cried. It was one of those times in life when things were quite literally falling to pieces and this handmade reminder of their love was exactly what I needed. Moms know that the truly important things in life are often intangible. What do we want for our children? Courage and compassion, wisdom and fortitude, patience and a sense of wonder. And maybe a sense of humor thrown in for good measure. In other words -- the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
