May Day, Mother’s Day and Memorial Day.
All three days are days of celebration and days of remembrance.
The Maypole, decorated with flowers, celebrates the beginning of May, which ushers in earth in full bloom.
Mother’s day honors mothers both living and dead. I remember each Mother’s Day dad would buy me a red rose to wear to church signifying that mom was alive and he would wear a red rose in his label. I remember the Mother’s Day that the color of his rose turned to white. I am still thankful that I wear a red rose in honor of my mom.
