Three years ago, I made a choice I will regret forever... We had the chance to do a show on Mother's Day weekend that would put us too far away to get back to visit my mother on her special day. For the first time in my life, I was not with my mother on Mother's Day. It was the last time I would have the chance to take her for lunch, give her the card and flowers I usually gave, and to hug her and tell her how much I loved her. The phone call I made wasn't enough...I was filled with guilt and sadness. I don't think I will ever be rid of that guilt and every Mother's Day I will deal with that sadness. I'm sorry mama! I miss you and love you!

Please don't miss the opportunity to spend this Sunday with your mother...It may be her last. It may be your last. GIVE MOM A HUG FOR ME!

To my family, friends, customers, and all those who have the honor of knowing the place children have in our hearts...BLESS YOU AND HAVE A HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Mother's understand; She would not want you to feel guilty. I hope you had a wondeful Mother's Day.

Take care,
