Letter From the Publisher, Maureen Hart Cary
May has such deep meaning for me and I rarely can find the words to express how it makes me feel. I’m already a “glass half full” person and then May comes and I am filled with joy. As many of you know, I spend time in both Rhode Island and Florida. New England can be especially stark with its season changes and though spring officially starts on March 21st, Rhode Islanders know that May is the month of transformation. The plants explode, the grass turns a rich green, there are those perfect days where the air is just right and all you want to do is sit outside to breath it all in. May is the month to appreciate! Even the animals know May is the month for romance as baby birds, rabbits and deer (or alligators in Florida!) begin to appear all around us.
May kicks off our special summer season when we plant our gardens, make our plans, and celebrate a rebirth of sorts. We celebrate Mother’s Day in May recognizing how special the women in our lives are. In this month’s issue, you will also notice a number of spotlights as part of our “Salute to Women Business Owners” sprinkled throughout the magazine. I hope you’ll take a moment and read these short spotlights of some of the brave and special women in our community making a difference in our world one at a time.
I am so fortunate to have so many wonderful women in my life. I’ve had the pleasure of spending a lot of time with my mother, my daughter and my sister-in-law recently. I am also blessed to have a wonderful team of women I work with at the magazine. From Suzanne doing design and production, Nancy editing, Wendy writing, and Lisa on marketing, we are a smoothly running team. I am so grateful for all of our advertisers, distribution sites, contributors and supporters. And of course, we couldn’t do it without our wonderful and loyal readers.
As you read this issue, I have faith that you’ll feel a similar sense of hopeful gratitude for the many caring voices of support and healthful solutions available to women today.
