Herma’s News – Happy Mother’s Day and Thank you
A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things, and crushes down remorselessly all that stand in its path. – Agatha Christie
Mother’s Day Message from Herma
This Mother’s Day I’d like to thank all women – mothers, grandmothers, little ones and in-between ones for your business and loyalty. It has been my great joy to have served you all these years.
It is wonderful to shop and buy gifts, but really in the end, it is the feelings we have for others that make this fleeting life worth living. It is because of this that I would like to share with you a poem that is dear to my heart, especially on Mother’s Day.
A Grandmother’s Wish
If I were granted any wish, I’ll tell you what I’d do, I’d wish my kids were small again, for just a month or two.
To hear their squeals of laughter, to watch them while they play. And when they ask me to join in, I’d NOT say “Not today.”
To hug again their chubby frame, to kiss away their tears, and cherish childhood innocence that’s washed away the years.
Then when it’s story time again, I’d stay a little longer, to answer questions, sing the songs, so memories would be stronger.
But time is callous, wishes, myth, yet God in all his wisdom, has given me another chance before I join his kingdom.
The face may not be just the same, the name is changed, ’tis true, but yet the smile that radiates, reminds me so of you.
God must have known that Grandma would need a chance or two. For many little happy things she hadn’t time to do.
So God gave love to Grandmas to equal that before, that, in effect embraces those little lives she bore.

Have a very Happy Mother’s Day everyone.
