The countdown is on! Seniors, as well as staff and other students, are counting down the days until the school year ends. The last day of classes at Mohall Lansford Sherwood is Thursday, May 21st, with graduation on Sunday, May 24th. That means 12 days left -- unless students are exempt from finals. Plus there are a lot of sporting events to finish out the school year, so some students will even have less days. Wow! Where did the year go?

This Sunday is a very special day, as it is Motherís Day. It is a time to honor mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers for their contribution to the family and society.

My mother has been a very important influence in my life, and I am truly grateful for all her love and support in everything I have done. She not only had to share her love with me, but also with my 5 other brothers and sisters. She certainly had her hands full when we were all young.

As Motherís Day approaches I would like to share this poem with her and like to tell her that I love her!

A Mother's Love
Author Unknown

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappoints
And calm all of our fears.

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we've dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.

There are times when only a Mother's faith
Can help us on life's way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.

For a Mother's heart and a Mother's faith
And a Mother's steadfast love
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above.

Happy Motherís Day to my mom and to all you mothers out there. Enjoy your special day and know that you are loved and you are appreciated for the person you are.

My Small Town
MySmallTown has civic pride;
we boast of where weíre from.
After all, it had a hand
in what we have become.

Maybe weíre not recognized
for someone, something great.
Nonetheless, we from this place,
find living here first rate.

Birthday greetings this week go out to my cousins, Cindy Fritz of Sidney, MT, and Chad Erickson of Delano, MN on the 10th; Asher Olson of SD on the 12th; and to Danielle Schiff of Sidney, MT on the 13th. Love and best wishes to all of you! Enjoy your special days!!
