Happy Mother's Day!
We give thanks for so many wonderful mothers in our Chamber and our community. I've made many new friendships with outstanding businesswomen who also are mothers during my first year as Executive Director.
Many are strong, yet kind.
Many juggle numerous roles, but know how to prioritize and determine what's most important.
Many possess strong leadership and vision, but also take time to listen and understand.
Union Avenue Christian Church shared a poem that resonated with me as I remember all my late mother did for me and all my wife does for my sons.
Your Mother is always with you.
She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street, she’s the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick, the fragrance of life itself.
She’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not feeling well, she’s your breath in the air on a cold winter’s day.
She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colors of a rainbow.
Your mother lives inside your laughter.
She’s the place you came from, your first home, and she’s the map you follow with every step you take.
She’s your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate you — not time ... not space ... not even death.
