“Dear Boys and Girls;
■ I consider it- an honor in being chosen
Mother of the Month and I take great pleasure
in vjriting to you.?.n this issue; Ianxious
to do my share, thougn it be little, to help
keep us on the'. "Sunny side" of life.
Now'that the djalll days, of winter have pass
ed we can shed'our coats, .bring out our brr^t
colored Easter clothes and be outside in the
sunshine among our flc5wers.’ Quite a few flow
ers. are -in. bloom, \iMch reminds me of Keats in his poem, ’'A thing of beauty is a joy
ip'eyer”. If .we fill cur minds with beautiful things it will cheer “us now and leave
pleasant memories for.later days. There is much we can do on tie home front toward
racking you boys and girls in-service* Keeping cheerful is an important part, I have
- !ieen told that letters from home to the boys and girls in the Armed Service, keeps
4. ivheir morale up, 'I feel that is true since my boy has been called into the Navy, I
find that Harry*s letters home keep my morale up. Boys remember your loved ones at
home are'waiting for the mail each day - ¥/rite every time you can. •
• My heart goes out in sympathy to every mother v;ho has a son in'our fighting force,
I 0jn proud of all the boys and girls who are serving under our- Flag, I once read
that in World War I, that'English mothers would stand on the streets of London as
soldiers w ere marching away to war, as others cheered they would clap their hands
while tears streamed, down their cheeks, I guess that is the way all parents feel,
both proud and sad at the saine time, ; '' ' . .
I know all of you are doing your part v/illingly and well,- wherever you are. We
are trying to do our part here and fill your places at work as much as .we can, I
have accepted work which is^helping me to pass much tine that otherwise would be long
and lonely hours spent at home,• In the meantime it is helping to keep the wheels turn
ing that victory may be speeded. The v;ar work comes first while our flowers, house-
^ work and many‘other things are in second place. Wlien we have helped to earn a per—
manant peace, when the lights come on again all over the world and each of you are
home again, there will be time■for insignificant matters that once occupied first
God bless our boys and biririg them safely home.
Mrs, Odis Royster
