Happy Mother's Day 2016

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149


Happy Mother's Day 2016.  On Mother's Day we always try to do something special for the Mother's at our Church.  So the last six years we have started what has become a tradition for us, serving breakfast to our mother's and expecting mother's on Mother's Day.

The breakfast is cooked by several men of the congregation, and the Mother's are served by their children, both young and old.  Both the men and children find it is a great way to serve Mother's who serve them all year long, and try to start their day in a special way.

Last year was the first Mother's Day for my daughter in-law, and my gorgeous granddaughter Elizabeth.  It was a special Mother's Day Breakfast not only for them but for my son, my wife, and myself.  This year my son, daughter in-law, and Elizabeth will not be able to be there since they have moved to Pickens, South Carolina.  But it will still be a special day for my wife, because she will be served breakfast by our youngest son.

After all the Mother's have been served, fathers and kids get to sit down in a separate area and get something to eat.  Since the kids served their Mother's the food, the men then do the cleaning up at the end.

Hopefully this is something we will continue at our Church for many more years to come.  But more importantly we recognize that Mother's should be honored not just once a year on Mother's Day but everyday of the year.  Hope you enjoy the pictures below I took of our Mother's Day Breakfast At the Ward Street Church of Christ last year. 


Happy Mother's Day 2016

to all Mother's, and I hope this was a special day for every Mother everywhere.

George, That is such a wonderful thing to do. I hope the tradition carries on and on. I agree. Mother's need to be honored every day of the year ... not just on one special day. However that one special day is appreciated. 

The same holds true for Fathers.  Honoring every day ... and on one special days as well.  What does the church do for Father's Day ... George Souto??

George Souto , I remember your Mother's Day blog from last year about the Mother's Day Brunch at your church.  Your church is celebrating Mother's Day such a giving way and making all the mother's feel cared for.  A great annual thing to do.

I know it has to be hard on you knowing that baby Elizabeth is so far away. I'm in the same boat.
