Whoa, There’s A Second Holiday For Mother’s?

Most people don’t know this, but the last Sunday in September is Gold Star Mother’s Day. It’s ironic because the typical holiday is celebrated in another part of the year, but this one is a federal holiday where the president is requested to come out. When’s the last time you saw that happen on a regular Mother’s Day?

Here’s a snippet from the proclamation:

Gold Star Mother’s Day as a public expression of the love, sorrow, and reverence of the people for Gold Star Mothers.

One of the girls at our company has a little passion for poetry to say the least and she wanted to write a few lines for the blog today. She said it’s a remix to another poem, but check it out anyways:

A mother sends out her dreams into the ocean;
We, the words are streaming towards the light,
The eggs of rock, the shards of hope.

Because she must finalize her beat
And fall back to the delicious dark hush of 1,
A mother sends out her dreams into the ocean

And in the spirit of the holiday no one seems to know about, we’re dropping prices on all of our Mother’s Day gift baskets by over thirty percent! Other holiday presents that have been reduced also include Easter gift baskets and Wedding gift baskets for no other reason then to give all the loyal customers a slick deal! Enjoy and be sure to tell your mother you love her mucho…
