“African Violets and King’s Syrup”
Mother's Day drives us to relive the wonders and challenges of the past. The love of mothers and grandmothers is etched upon the very fabric of our lives. Their care and love sustained us then and the memories of those touches on our lives encourages us still. The mother of our Lord nurtured him as a boy and stood beside his cross in his darkest hour. A mother never gives up. Even the smallest joys bring our mothers and grandmothers back to us. The fragrance of a flower, a recipe that she shared, her favorite color, the sight of a song bird that would have excited her, all bring them back to life and let us know that they are very much alive deep within our spirit.
