I like any occasion which brings the Blessed Mother more into our lives, and what better occasion than a birthday!We celebrate our earthly mother’s birthday, so why not our mother in heaven.
Make one of your favorite cakes today. (Or even that box mix that has been on the shelf for awhile.)We don’t sing or blow out candles, although if I had all young ones I certainly would, but we enjoy our cake for dessert remembering how much we love our mother in heaven and how much she loves us.
Put a vase of flowers at your Mary statue.
If your Mary garden looks like mine, it desparately needs some TLC. Today is a good day to do just that. Maybe plant some mums or other flowers there for the fall.
She loves to hear the rosary—this would make a great birthday gift.
Or say the "Hail, Holy Queen" after dinner.
