Mother's day is here.
A time to honour our mothers
- and our grandmothers.
In the church we celebrate Mothering Sunday
on the 4th Sunday in Lent.
The church I attend presents all the mothers with
a sprig of rosemary (for remembrance and love)
and a small flax cross.
Traditionally we return the crosses to the church
in time to be burnt for use in the
next years Ash Wednesday service.
Today, as is usual, my little mother came over for lunch.
On the way we visited my middle daughter
to drop a grandboy off
- and picked up a lovely patio pot plant.
My girls are so trusting,
they still believe I can keep plants alive,
and so they continue to give them to me.
When we finally arrived home
eldest daughter and lovely eldest granddaughter were here.
They had decided to join us for lunch.
They had also brought me something to grow,
but I'm pretty sure bulbs are foolproof and
even I would have a hard time not growing them.
All I have to do is remember to get them in the ground.
I'm pretty sure I can do that :)
Little mother loves Turkish Delight so I shared that with her.
We had a lovely visit.
To all you mothers and grandmothers in blogland,
Have a wonderful mother's day,
wherever you are and whatever you may be doing.
