We at HottyToddy.com are happy to welcome Patricia Neely-Dorsey to share her talent with Oxford and the Rebel Nation. With Mother’s Day this weekend she shares her poems.
Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood that is observed in different forms throughout the world. The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. While dates and celebrations vary, Mother’s Day most commonly falls on the second Sunday in May and traditionally involves presenting mothers with flowers, cards and other gifts.
One of the greatest gifts that I have received in my life, besides my son, is being blessed with a most wonderful Southern mother!
One of the greatest gifts that my mother gave me was instilling in me a great deal of self-confidence and positive self-esteem. It has made all of the difference in how I see and handle the world around me. It has made all of the difference in allowing me to be able to Be Me! Do Me and Shine!
