    The earliest history of Mother’s Day dates back to the ancient annual spring festival the Greeks dedicated to maternal goddesses. The Greeks used the occasion to honor Rhea, wife of Cronus and the mother of many deities of Greek mythology.

Mom’s simple words of wisdom | Print |

MD Sutherland dx sh 18    My mother Loena Sutherland had a huge barrel cactus. It was picky and highly objectionable to keep. Then it blossomed into a beautiful white trumpet blossom that filled the room with its scent for a day. “Being patient is a virtue” is a quote I remember of Mom’s.
    My daughter gave me a card for Mother’s Day when she was in school. It had cats on the outside and also on the inside. I looked down and it had the cat’s name on it. I was a pet parent but the signature was a surprise.

MothersDayBannerMD-DayChristine-dcx-sh-18    The special memory that I remember of my Mom, Christine Day, was that she loved kids.
    She would always babysit in our home. The time I remember most was the fall during harvest time. She babysat 13 kids ranging in all ages. She kept nine of the 13 overnight. Some of those nine kids she kept 24 hours a day seven days a week during the whole harvest season and she only charged the parents for an eight-hour day. That is how much my Mom loved kids and how she loved to help people out.
    My Mom had a heart of gold. I lost my Mom 22 years ago to cancer. I love and miss her very much!
    Happy Mother’s Day Mom!

Jean Ball, Caribou
