A full house!

Tea for two?  It was more like tea for 62 last Friday at Legacy Estates of Monmouth!  We had a full house at our Afternoon Tea in celebration of Mother’s Day.  Some guests drove for over two hours to come celebrate with us!  This event turned out to be one of our most highly attended and memorable events to date!

After seating our much larger than expected crowd, Legacy staff members served beverages as well as cream puffs, coffee cake and orange scones.  Everyone also enjoyed listening to the divine voice of gospel singer, Vicki Butler, throughout the afternoon.  Our newest resident brought me a poem titled “Only One Mother” earlier last week and asked that it be shared at the mother’s day tea.  Vicki read it aloud to the crowd and everyone was given a copy to take home. It was an absolutely wonderful afternoon at Legacy Estates. An afternoon overflowing with love as each of us celebrated an amazing gift…our Mother’s.

Only One Mother

Garnet Ann Schultz

Only one Mother, a lifetime through,
Though so many other things come by two.
The rainbows, the starlight, the beautiful things,
Each new tomorrow, another one brings.

Plenty of roses and sunsets and such,
Green grass and blue skies that still mean so much.
The sunshine of summer is waiting for you,
Another bright springtime when winter is through.

But only one Mother, God meant it this way,
That she should be special and dearer each day.
He took part of all in this world bright and real
And made them a part of the Mother ideal.

Do cherish this treasure, so precious and rare,
For she has a heart and is willing to share.
God’s greatest creation, more dear than all other;
All else come in dozens, but only ONE MOTHER.
