Source of Strength

The Aloha Bears set sail today on their 2nd Sunday Catamaran Cruise. They’ll meet up at Bacchus pre-cruise and enjoy lunch at the bar post-cruise. So much fun with a great group of guys! Join us.

Embrace. Hug. Hold. Love.

These are the things our mothers do for us. There is no doubt about it, mothers can be a powerful influence on how we interact with others, how we love and even how we enjoy cocktails on the weekend—Sunday make-your-own bloody mary at Bacchus anyone?

Our moms are definitely the biggest blessings in our lives. No matter how far we are, how fast our life is spinning by or how differently it has evolved as we grew up, the moment we pause and turn around, we will always find them smiling at us, standing right there by our side.

Moms perfectly juggle roles and multi-task various jobs and responsibilities. They are the reason behind the progress of the family and the society at large. Since mothers usually have a soft and emotional temperament, fathers are often credited as the source of identity and strength for the family. However, if we scratch the surface, we will realize that our mothers are as strong as our fathers and are our strongest support systems.

Moms know that we are strong and courageous even when we face defeat. When things go wrong, they are there by our side to give us all the support that we need.

Moms accept us the way we are.


The number of memorable songs dedicated to mom is countless. Here are some choice selections from the past 30 years.

All great options. You might also enjoy the tear-jerker “Dear Momma” (below) from the short-lived musical Tales Of The City based on the trivial novel of the same name by Armistead Maupin. In the song, one of the main characters, Michael, writes a heartfelt coming out letter to his mom…

“Being gay has taught me tolerance, compassion and humility. It has shown me the limitless possibilities of living. It has given me people whose passion and kindness and sensitivity have provided a constant source of strength…"

We’ll play this one at Stage & Screen Night tomorrow (starting at 6PM). Sing along with us!


Cheers to moms all over the world!
