Greetings Fellow Readers and Happy May!
Yes, spring is definitely filling the air with its fragrance and promise of new beginnings! A general feeling of joy abounds and a renewed gratitude for life and love. What an appropriate month to celebrate Motherhood. Not all of us are Moms, but we all have one. Giving back to them is one of the greatest joys. Show appreciation for other women in our lives especially on Mother's Day and let them know you care. Simple gifts of flowers or candy mean so much. And for our women who read? An abundance of gift choices! Here are some ideas to entertain, inspire and educate the variety of women you know:

For the woman with a few years of experience, there's Hot Granny: Fabulous at 50, 60 and Beyond by Mel Walsh, a columnist and grandmother. This book offers advice, in a lighthearted manner, in areas like relationships, fitness and pursuing new friends and hobbies.

For someone who's not necessarily a reader but loves beautiful pictures, why not share Georgia O'Keeffe Museum Collections by Barbara Buhler Lynes.

A Book For My Mother by Pamela Winterbourne is written as a tender tribute to her mother and her thankfulness for the gifts she has given of her time, patience and love. An ideal gift for Mother's Day!

Know anyone expecting? Great with Child: Letters to a Young Mother , by Beth Ann Fennelly is a collection of letters written to a pregnant friend, sharing the joys of being a parent and life with her young daughter.

I love the idea of this one for new Moms: Naptime Is the New Happy Hour: And Other Ways Toddlers Turn Your Life Upside Down by Stefanie Wilder-Taylor Doesn't that sound like fun reading and a humorous look at tiring times? And also the helpful The Rookie Mom's Handbook: 250 Activities to Do with (and Without!) Your Baby by Heather Flett and Whitney Moss.

And it certainly seems like you couldn't go wrong with: Mother to Daughter by Melissa Harrison or the simply put Happy Mother's Day! by Honor Books Sarah Hupp (Editor). And add a box of pretty tissues if giving: Chicken Soup for the Soul Celebrating Mothers and Daughters (Chicken Soup for the Soul) by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Frances Firman Salorio and Dorothy Firman

Happy Mother's Day to all of you who are or had or have known a wonderful Mother!!!!

Frances
