Happy UN-Birthday to May Flowers & Mums

Birthdays are important here at 39AHC. Is May YOUR birth month?

 Happy UN-Birthday!

Oh, of course, you're NOT a year older -- THAT isn't happening! No we UN-do birthdays here. However, birthdays are vital reminders to pamper ourselves and have fun, at least ONE day out of the year. OK, well, I tend to party the whole month away, but maybe that's just me. So here is some fun for this month's UN-birthday 39ers ...

May Flowers & Mums
In case your head is stuck in the pre-summer sand, this Sunday (May 11) is Mother's Day ...

Go that extra mile to celebrate your 39er Mom or Mum for Mother’s Day! Send flowers – but not just ANY flowers – make it special and send her the one that corresponds with her birth month.

Mine happens to be the Chrysanthemum (are you paying attention, sons?) which symbolizes cheerfulness, friendship and abundance, according to Wikipedia. Additional info links: SeriouslyFlowers, TheOld Farmer’s Almanac.

What’s YOUR mother’s birth flower? (P.S.: Just to confuse you, some months have more than one flower.) Here's what you need to know ...
January           Carnation & Snowdrop               Fascination, admiration & hope
February          Primrose & Violets                    Modesty, simplicity
March               Daffodil                                    Spring, rebirth & unrequited love
April                 Sweet Pea & Daisy                   Innocence & bliss         
*May                 Hawthorn & Lily of the Valley     Happiness, humility & hope*
June                 Rose & Honeysuckle                Love, gratitude, sweetness
July                  Larkspur & Water Lily               Majesty, eloquence, joyfulness
August              Poppy & Gladiolus                   Remembrance, imagination & success
September       Aster & Morning Glory              Magic, love & patience
October            Cosmos & Marigold                  Protection, peace & grace
November        Chrysanthemum                       Cheerfulness, truth & friendship
December        Narcissus & Holly                     Vanity, sweetness & foresight

*Is THIS month your mom's birthday? Don't forget a Club 39 Lifetime Membership!
And for those of us whose mothers have ascended to the eternal vacation spot in the heavens, my tribute to my Mother, Florence, and yours … a heartfelt adaptation of The Lord’s Prayer …

 Happy Mother's Day!
