CTMH The Woman, The Myth, The Legend Card

This Sunday is Mother’s Day.  Don’t forget!  Earlier this week I heard someone say something funny in regard to the times we are currently facing.  He said, “COVID-19 doesn’t cancel Mother’s Day.  It’s this Sunday.  Don’t forget.”   While a lot of things are being cancelled for everyone’s safety, Mother’s Day is not one of those things.  Please don’t forget to show your mom some love this Sunday.  Mail her a card.  Give her a call.  Just remember her!
