As we celebrate this Mother's Day, l am reminded of the wonderful connection between our mothers and those who have mentored us.
History of Mother's Day--The Action of One Woman:
The driving force behind Mother’s Day was Anna Jarvis, who organized observances in Grafton, W.Va., and Philadelphia, Pa., on May 10, 1908. As the annual celebration became popular around the country, Jarvis asked members of Congress to set aside a day to honor mothers. She succeeded in 1914, when Congress designated the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.
In this video I am paying tribute to the women (and men) who raised me at my home church, St. Paul AME in Detroit Michigan. This video shows how important mentoring is between generations. Enjoy!
Happy Mother's Day To All!!

You are too kind, Maria. This was so very easy to compile. And there are so many other women who deserve this type of tribute. It's taken a village to raise me!
