Celebrating Our Mothers – Happy Mother’s Day!


In celebration of Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 13th, we’d like to recognize and honor our mothers and grandmothers at DHG. Thank you for all you do to love, support and care for your families. We’ve gathered a few photos and special memories about our mothers or grandmothers and what it means to be a mother. Take a moment and recognize your mother or grandmother and tell her what she means to you.

Enjoy your special day, mothers!

We work in a high stress environment, and it is easy to let life zip by. My mom always taught me to take time for myself and make sure that I keep doing the things that are good for me physically, emotionally and spiritually. She has always been a great supporter and definitely modeled what a hard-working dedicated mother should be. It’s been an honor working with her (Robin Byrum) at DHG, and it has made me appreciate her even more now that I’m a working mother myself. With the risk of sounding completely cliché, motherhood is the best and hardest thing I’ve ever experienced. It changes everything and has truly helped me prioritize better, work smarter and enjoy the little moments more.

Mother’s Day has an entirely new meaning for me this year as I anxiously wait to meet my soon-to-arrive son or daughter. While I’m both incredibly excited and nervous, I know that I’ve learned from the best when it comes to being a mom and being a working mom. My mom, mother-in-law, grandmothers, friends and teammates are incredible role models and I’m so grateful for their inspiration and words of wisdom.

One of Kathe’s favorite quotes comes from her Grandmother Louise – “Remember you always know who spends money, you never know who has money.”

Like many, I must say my mom is the best!  While a 1000 miles apart, we speak every day and she always tells me she’s my #1 fan. One thing I’m always remind of by her is the quote from the movie, The Help – “You is kind. You is smart. You is important.”. Not only is she always there for me at a moment’s notice but she volunteers with numerous organizations, reaches out to help babysit my friend’s children who are local to her, owns & operates a small business, and she takes care of my sister. That later is of significant meaning as my sister has special needs- a rare congenital malformation syndrome called septo-optic dysplasia as well as borderline personality disorder.  Her care requires a great deal of patience, time & energy plus includes weekly trips to medical appointments which require a 4 hour round-trip commute.  I’m in awe of how she has managed this for the past 40 years.  It’s truly a testament to who she is, her strength, and the love a mother has for her children.

My late mother was an incredible lady! While she may not have had a favorite quote, she always had something special to say. My mother always had a positive attitude, always had a smile on her face and loved to help others whether it was a family member, a friend or someone she just met. I am so blessed to have had such a loving, warm and caring mother and I want to be just like her when I grow up!
