APPRECIATINGMother ALL THAT I AM OR HOPE TO BE I OWE TO MY MOTHER.” By Margie K. Cody, President/CEO A Spirit of Excellence Event Planning Jacksonville, Florida Mother’s Day is a time set aside to specially honor Mom. Mother’s Day is very special and is officially observed each year on the second Sunday in May. We take this opportunity to honor Mothers and Grandmothers, without whom we would not be the adults that we have become without their nurturing, friendship and guidance. Moms are caregivers, cheerleaders, counselors, nutritionists and so much more. Be sure to do something special for your Mom this Mother’s Day. There are lots of fun ways to celebrate this special day. Planning ahead helps make the occasion delightful, fun and relaxing. Whether cooking a meal at home or setting up an extravagant weekend itinerary, you’ll benefit from having a checklist of important points to have covered in advance: tickets, reservations, what to buy, and so on.. HERE ARE SOME IDEAS FOR PLANNING YOUR MOM’S FABULOUS WEEKEND. REMEMBER, TOO, THAT YOU CAN ALWAYS MAKE UP YOUR OWN!

Remember to take Monday off work in order to enjoy this 3-day getaway in full. Call Today and allow A Spirit of Excellence to plan that special treat for Mom.

We will add a ‘Touch of Elegance.’ A Mothers Love A Mother‘s love is something that no one can explain, It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain, It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may For nothing can destroy it or take that love away ................ It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking ................ It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns, And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems ................ It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation, And it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation ................ A many splendoured miracle man cannot understand And another wondrous evidence of God‘s tender guiding hand. - Helen Steiner Rice .CALL 904 768-0370 OR EMAIL [email protected] FOR A COMPLETE LIST OF SERVICES PROVIDED PROGRAM SUCCESS MAGAZINE PAGE: 11 | MOTHERS DAY 2015
