Happy May, friends! If April showers bring May flowers, then we should expect an abundance of blooms coming soon. We have certainly experienced our fair share of rain, and many of our local areas dealt with flooding issues. We are thankful that all is well here at The Blue Owl.

May also brings warm thoughts of the special ladies in our lives, as Mother’s Day quickly approaches. For me, this means reflecting upon the treasured women who influenced me. My mother was a wonderful and inspiring woman who instilled in me a love for family, friends and delicious homemade food. My dear grandmother lived an amazing faith-filled life, held our family very dear to her heart, and was an exceptional cook. I will cherish the memories and the influence of these dear women forever. As a mother and a grandmother myself, there is nothing more special to me than my family and the love we share.

As you’re making your Mother’s Day plans, please remember that our restaurant hosts a special meal that day, which is available by reservation only. On Sunday, May 14 from 10:00am until 5:00 pm, we will be serving a special menu that includes Chicken and Dumplings, Southern Fried Chicken, Baked Stuffed Pork Chop and more. Please call 636-464-3128 soon to make your reservation.

Whether you bring your mother or other special influence in for Mother’s Day, or treat her to a dessert at home, I can assure you that taking time to express your gratitude and love will be remembered long after any gift is opened or meal is eaten. So, remember to give the gift of you through a visit, a phone call, a hug, or a special note.

I wish you a wonderful Mothers Day and I hope that all the mothers and others remember that Dreams Really Do Come True!

All my love,

~ Mary
