Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
We're remembering our mothers today - as we try to do every year. I could find no midi file for today's song (and I personally could not hear it even if I had been able to do so), but the lyrics (printed below, as always) were simply too good to ignore, so just watch the bonus video:

From Me ('65) of NC - 05/10/15 - " Baba (19 May 1908 - 15 Feb 1999)":

best - and the coolest - mother in the world:
Thanks, Baba! Happy Mother's Day!
From Jennings Bryan (June '42) of VA - 05/08/16, 11:32 AM - " Alverta Miller Nelson":
Have a great day.
Thank you so much, Jennings! I saw this listing early this morning and spent a good hour trying to determine which class was hers. Not finding her senior portrait in either the February or June '42 Beacons, and not owning either of the '43 yearbooks, I was never able to do so. My sympathies to you on the loss of your schoolmate.
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS:

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 05/08/15:
|“There is no
one perfect way to be a good mother. Each situation is unique. Each
mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities, and
certainly different children. The choice is different and unique for
each mother and each family... What matters is that a mother loves her
children deeply and, in keeping with the devotion she has for God and
her husband, prioritizes them above all else.”
Russell Ballard, April, 2008
Thanks so much, Susan!
