An ode to our mothers....

A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.  ~ Tenneva Jordan

Every day should be Mother’s Day because every day our mothers love us unconditionally. They teach us the basics in life such as how to take that first step, tie a shoe, and ride a bike, but they also teach us things that are less tangible, such as how to be a good friend or how to be a mother ourselves. Leading by example is one way they accomplish this; you might say we are able to give love because we have been loved: children grow up and have children of their own and pass that love on to the next generation. 

This year, Mother’s Day takes on a new meaning for us – Catherine now has a 4 month old daughter and Lindsay is only a few weeks away from giving birth to her first child, a little boy. As we enter this new chapter in life we would like to thank our mothers for the love they so willingly poured out on us and for teaching us the meaning of friendship.  After all, that's really what the game of Bunco is about.  

Catherine and her mother Kathy

Lindsay and her mother Sandy 
Thank you Sandy and Kathy!  

In loving memory of Sandy
