Mothers Day Special:
Mothers, Heroes and First Ladies
Pretty as this early 20th century greeting card from the Bay Weekly collection is, motherhood far outstrips any stereotype. From the beginning, mothers have labored to feed, clothe and shelter their children all the while radiating nurture as the sun casts light. In the midst of her long days work, Mother has had her own life to live time or not and men to relate to, for better or worse. Without paying much mind to it, shes had history to make. It doesnt matter if it ever gets written; every mother makes the history that will be lived out by her children and grandchildren.
Mothers, Heroes and First Ladies ~ by Sandra Martin
On Mothers Day and the other 364 days of the year meet Women of Achievement in Maryland History, brought to you by former First Lady Frances Hughes Glendening.
