Mother's Day

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.

  4. Dearet Diana,
    So sorry for mybelated comment, my friend.
    Oh, I love to know your culture about 'the cross' and happy to know your mother is doing fine♡♡♡

    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  5. Sounds like you had a lovely three generation Mother's Day. I'm going to Winnipeg this weekend to visit my mother, who has been in a care facility for Alzheimer's patients for the past few years. She no longer knows me or my sister or anything else for that matter but three of my daughters, my sister and I will visit her just the same because we all know and remember who she is. Enjoy your 'little mother'.

  6. It sounds as if you had a perfect Mother's Day. Just a thought - it's a pity you can't grow turkish delight trees isn't it? Now that would be really great :))


please feel free to leave a comment, I love to hear from you
