Wishing you all a very Happy Mother’s Day!! My mother who is no longer here on this earth but her memories live forever. I am so thankful to have a wonderful mother who had given of herself unconditionally throughout my life. She was the most inspiring and courageous person I have ever known.
She raised my 2 brothers and I on a school teacher’s salary after my father died when I was nine years old. My mother instilled the value of education and taught me the importance of giving back to the community and helping others. She was an educator and well respected community leader. I stand on her shoulders.
(Mother’s Day is observed on the second Sunday of May or May 13, 2012.)
