May 8th

Happy Mother's Day!

I can proudly say that my mom is my best friend. I can go to her, lean on her and ask her for anything. We have fun together no matter where we go. Nobody knows me better.

Not only is it Mothers Day (the second Sunday of May), but the 8th has 4 other holidays!!

First is Red Cross Day , I give blood, I am scared to death to do it every time I go in, I hate it. The finger prick is awful, then I feel like I am going to pass out every time I sit in that chair. So why do I do it? Two reasons:
1. I am O+ , which means I can give to any other blood type, and therefore is very useful.
2. If me, my children or anyone I loved ended up getting blood at a hospital, it would be because someone took the time and gave theirs to help others.

So if you have never done it, whatever the reason, I encourage you to make an appointment with your local blood bank and give.

Next up is V-E Day. V-E Day marks the victory in Europe in 1945, World War II.
What an iconic time, not only for the US, but for the entire world.

And last but not least, today is Iris Day. Fitting to be the first day of Wildflower Week!
My grandmother grows Iris's in a special area of her back yard. They are beautiful and smell wonderful.
