May and Mothers
May 7th, 2013 6:10 PM

The month of May casts her magic spell as spring in finally here for almost everyone. Even in Florida, this is a beautiful month (except for the pests knows as love bugs).  It's time to hang those baskets of spring flowers, and use your vases to show off the beauty of spring blooms in the house.

May also brings about the idea of "spring cleaning" for most homeowners.  This year, learn about the ancient Chinese art of feng shui; tackle one junk drawer at a time; rearrange your favorite collection of personal mementos and pictures and savor the sweet memories.  Take pictures off a wall and clear tables and stands for one week to experience "the fullness of nothing."  Then decide what you want to put back. 

For Mother's Day, give yourself a small token of esteem to honor the great mother within.  Do this whether or not you have children.  Forgive yourself for not living up to your own expectations and start off fresh.  Be grateful if your own mother is still alive, and if not, talk to her in your heart.  She will hear.

Above all, be happy and be grateful.  Everyone has, had or has been a mother.  Give extra love this special weekend and honor a mother, even if it is the one "within."

Happy Mother's Day!
