These last days, my thought and reflection took me back to my early childhood days. Our Blessed Mother was always honored during the month of May. For fifteen cents, I bought a fluffy blue ribbon with a medal of the Blessed Mother. Throughout the month of May, I wore her as a reminder of Her love and protection. Songs were sung to Our Blessed Mother, flowers presented to Her for the classroom altar and May devotions held every evening at 7 o'clock. Our Blessed Mother holds a very special place in my heart. Mother's Day is the perfect day to share our prayer for our Mothers and to continue each day with our Blessed Mother.
