Happy Mother's Day

Dear Mom, Happy Mother's Day! You're the best.

And to everyone's mother, we celebrate you every day, but especially today. Thank you for the gift of life and love.

And, for those who know of her and those who don't, Happy Mary Holmes' Birthday.

The ancient bull obeisance made,
The earth was kissed by the tip of his horn,
The angels of mothering, spring, and sight
New praises sang to Him whose light
Descended to illumine night
The day that she was born.

Mary was born on May 8, 1910, the best of the age. She would have been 95 today. Find out more about her and order books at Mary Holmes: Paintings and Ideas

And thank your mother!
