Happy early Mother’s Day, darling! I hope you get to celebrate with your children and grandchildren this year. I always have loved Mother’s Day because I like to honor the one that gave me life and the ones that have taught me lessons in life.
That was one of the main reasons I wrote “Stories for my Grandchild – a Grandmother’s Journal,” so that we grandmothers and mothers could share our stories, memories, and adventures with our families. There’s nothing better than sharing our legacies with those we love. Don’t you agree? If you would like a journal of your own or to get one for your mother or grandmother, please do! I guarantee they will love it.
The best gift we can give our loved ones is from the heart!
Now, on to my weekend musings…

Broadway in New York City to Open in September
Did you hear the news? Things are finally getting back to normal. It was announced that Broadway will come back to New York City this September at 100 percent capacity. Isn’t that wonderful?
If you live in New York, or you love to travel to NYC to see Broadway shows, make sure to get your tickets. It’s time for artists to get back to work, and I can’t wait to see what new shows come to life in the fall.

The Origins of Mother’s Day
Whenever there is a holiday, I always love to look up the origins and see where they came from. Since tomorrow is Mother’s Day, I wanted to do the same.
According to the History Channel, Mother’s Day in America was started by Anna Jarvis. This is what they had to say about it:
“The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. Jarvis would later denounce the holiday’s commercialization and spent the latter part of her life trying to remove it from the calendar.”
