~~ MAY TRIVIA ~~

Who conceived the idea of wearing red poppies on Memorial Day?
This person wanted to honor those who died serving
the nation during war time.

In 1915, Moina Michael was the first person to wear one!
She sold poppies to her friends and co-workers in order
to make money to benefit servicemen who were in need.

~~

~~____RED POPPIES_____~~

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

~ Moina Michael ~

Happy Mother's Day
May 12th
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A mother is she who
can take the place of
all others, but whose
place no one else can take.

~ Cardinal Meymillod

It's not easy being a mother.
If it were, fathers would do it.

~ The Golden Girls

We have a secret in our culture,
and it's not that birth is painful.
It's that women are strong.

~ Laura Stavoe Harm

A mom forgives us all our
faults, not to mention one or
two we don't even have.

~ Robert Brault
