Montgomery Locals May 8, 2019

By Staff | May 9, 2019

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12, so I’d like to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there. Society wouldn’t be able to function without the millions of determined women who face the relentless ins and outs of day-to-day life while trying to raise children who will grow up to be decent human beings. Many mothers balance full-time jobs and out-of-home commitments that help to make the world a better place while still being there to meet their child’s every need, and that is truly a remarkable thing to accomplish. I believe that raising a child who grows into a compassionate, upright adult is the biggest challenge and the greatest achievement a person can have. I have enormous respect for good moms.

I would also like to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to those women out there who serve as maternal figures to kids who don’t have a mother in their life. What you do matters far more than words can express.

Most of all I would like to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to my own mom, Glenda Heasley, who made the world’s toughest job look like effortless fun. I love you, Mom, and I thank you for everything.

THOT “All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” Abraham Lincoln

Happy birthday to Natasha Rider, who will be celebrating her birthday on May 12.

Happy birthday wishes go to my mom, Glenda Heasley, who will magically be a year younger on May 13. I love you and I hope that you have a wonderful year, Mom!
