Mother's Day & Melissa Manchester

Dear Y'all,


Bless you on this special day—whether you are a Mom, always wanted to be a Mom, used to be a Mom, or just had a Mom—it’s a special day acknowledging the MOST special people in the world. It’s a joyful day for those of us lucky enough to have our children and still have our own Moms but I want to especially remember those who have lost their children or their Moms—or who perhaps have never had the blessing of receiving the Child of Their Heart. Let’s not forget that while it’s a happy day for us—it can be a very sad day for others—and let’s lift them up in any way we can.

Our very own MELISSA MANCHESTER—besides working away on the SPQ™ MUSICAL—has been inspired to write “POWER OF RIBBONS” by watching her friend, Nancy, battle breast cancer, raise a family and, all the while, raise money for breast cancer research.

I know ALL of us have been touched in some way by this disease.

Melissa has been invited to debut “POWER OF RIBBONS” at the opening of this year's Revlon Run/Walk For Women, in front of a crowd of 50,000 on May 10 at The Los Angeles Coliseum.

She will follow up with an encore performance of the song at Dodger Stadium on Mother's Day, May 11, to highlight the L.A. Dodgers’ ongoing fundraising efforts for a cure.

Melissa will be donating her proceeds to Breast Cancer Research.  YAY MELISSA!

We’ll have a FATHER’S DAY SPECIAL in the store, starting the end of next week—more on that later.

And, I’ll have something exciting to share with y’all next week—I’ve been ABOUT TO BUST from having to keep it a secret for the last couple weeks!!!  Stay tuned!

Write to me anytime at hrhjill@sweetpotatoqueens.com —with funny stories, GOOD OBITUARIES, and/or Questions about Life Itsownself—I'm often wrong, but NEVER IN DOUBT!
