May 2017 – Exclamation Points!

Kassidi and Kolton Kaminski.

Mothers and Their Babies

May is absolutely one of my favorite months of the year because after all, it is the month when we celebrate one of the best things in my life: being a mother. As my babies have gotten older – Kassidi now 246 months and Kolton now 216 months old – my role as a mother has not diminished one bit. The needs have changed, but they are equally as important at 216 months – and more expensive – as they were at 12 months. And speaking of expensive, you really can’t put a price on a mother’s love. If you need some ideas to help you celebrate mom, we can help. Check out our Hearts & Flowers Gift Guide on page 30. There are some great ideas to help your mom feel extra special.

We are also shining the spotlight this month on some extra special moms who are not only devoted to their families, they are devoted to service. Learn about these amazing moms and their stories in A Mother’s Day Tribute to Fort Bend Moms. Such inspiring women!

Speaking of inspiring, this month I am proud to debut what I hope will be an inspiring column by an amazing young woman just in time for Mother’s Day – my daughter Kassidi. Kassidi is a sophomore at the University of Texas at Austin, and her journey from her home nest of a private school of 800 students to what our family firmly believes to be the finest university in the state of Texas of over 50,000 students has been one filled with life lessons. Some of the lessons have been good, some bad, some poignant and some revealing – and those are just the lessons that I’ve learned!  I hope you enjoy College Daze:  Writing the Next Chapter.

As you are out and about writing the next chapter of your lives, please keep in touch and let us know what is important to you and what is going on in your lives.  I wish all of our Fort Bend moms an absolutely amazing Mother’s Day. Our moms deserve the best!

Stay focused,
