Mothers Are Worthy

Pipestone Flyer

Mothers, daughters, and grandmothers from the Warburg area celebrated Mother's Day this year with the annual Mother's Day Shortcake Tea May 11 at the Warburg Cultural Centre. The event was organized by the Warburg Bloomin' Buddies. Motivational speaker Brenda Walton was the guest speaker at this year's Mother's Day Strawberry Shortcake Tea.

    The Warburg Cultural Centre was packed with mothers and grandmothers this past weekend for the annual Mother’s Day Strawberry Shortcake Tea Saturday afternoon.

    This year, the theme for the afternoon, Hats Off to Moms, had all the lovely ladies wearing their best hats and fascinators for the special occasion, to honour the most important women in our lives: mom.

The sunny spring afternoon event was filled with plenty of yummy treats, coffee, tea, door prizes, entertainment, and lots of laughs for all the special guests who attended that day.

    Featured that afternoon was motivational speaker, Brenda Walton, who brought her message of female empowerment and self love.

    Five years ago, Walton heard about a program where 100 people selected from around the world, would be taught by Jack Canfield, author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, to help spread his inspirational message, and to become their own success coaches.

    Once she completed her training, Walton developed her own W.O.R.T.H.Y Women program.

    “It was the most amazing time of my life,” she told the crowd.

    Walton’s own program focuses on teaching women to “walk their own paths confidently, unconditionally love ourselves and others and to connect regularly with their intuition,” she said.

    “Are you living your life fully with no regrets?” she asked the captive crowd.

    Walton spoke of her own personal journey, from being a shy teenager to becoming an empowered woman who now helps coach other women to lead their best lives.

    Her W.O.R.T.H.Y program stands for:

W: Wake Up

O: Own your power

R: Relate with love

T: Trust self and source

H: Honouring your past

Y: Yes to life

    In closing, Walton left the women in the crowd with a question to consider. 

“How will you spend the rest of your life? Average or memorable? I’m heading for memorable, who will join me?”

    Also taking the stage that afternoon was singer/songwriter Joanne Janzen who serenaded the audience with her original music.
