Mother’s Day memories

Now that I have a daughter of my own, I better understand all that my mom did to care for my brother and me. In recognition of Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 8, I asked Mom, who has 40 years of experience, to unlock the secrets to the job that receives no pay and sometimes little credit.  

Happy Mother’s Day!

Sunday, May 8, is Mother’s Day. Don’t forget to send some flowers to your mother, these joyful roses for example. With their sunny disposition, yellow roses are perfect for spring and symbolize friendship and good health. Pink roses are another appropriate choice for Mom since they symbolize appreciation, gratitude and love.

 Your life was a blessing, 
your memory a treasure,
You are loved beyond words 
and missed beyond measure,

The art of stained glass, its secrets displayed

Between April 29 and May 1, the École de Vitrail de Carole Deslauriers held its annual art show at the Centre communautaire Noël-Brulart in Sillery. An impressive group of artists were there to present their work and demonstrate the techniques used to prepare a stained-glass work of art.
