MOTHER

Love as powerful as your mother’s for you leaves it’s own mark. Not a scar, no visible sign… to have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever. It is in your very skin.

—–From the book: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

I love you Mom! I miss You! But I feel you with me everyday. And that feels good. Thank you for everything!. XOXO……

The sun lights up a drop of dew. The drop of dew soon dries. You are the light of my eyes, my eyes. I’m brought to life by you…

Just a few May tidbits, too many to write them all. Enjoy! and have a Wonderful Day!

CINCO DE MAYO

Contrary to popular belief, Cinco De Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day. The Holiday is a celebration of the Mexican Army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War, which lasted from 1861-1867. Although Cinco De Mayo seems like a popular holiday in the US, Mexican Independence Day, on September 16, is a much bigger celebration.

In American Culture, Cinco De Mayo has become a holiday for everyone to enjoy festivals, fiestas, Latin food and lots of alcohol for the adult crowd.

Enjoy!
