Traditions, Thought for the day

 HAPPY MOTHER''S DAY to all mothers who read my blog!

 Tomorrow we celebrate Mother's Day. Like in the UK we celebrate it on the second Sunday in May.
My daughter in Australia sent me a card from Oxfam saying that my present was a gift to the midwives in Laos. This is part of a world-changing program called Oxfam Unwrapped. I am very happy with this gift!! The fact that my children became good mothers, who also care for the rest of the world and think of such a gift, makes me proud of them and happy.
 She wrote on it:"From one mother to another mother for many other mothers."

 Wikipedia says:"UK holds the prestige of being the first country in the world to dedicate a special day for mothers It started when the Roman and British Empire converted to Christianity."

What a wonderfully thoughtful gift! Two years ago, my daughter gave a classroom full of supplies (to me) for Christmas! Happy Mother's Day, Wil...we celebrate tomorrow, too.

What a special gift on Mother’s Day. While my mother was living I called her every Mother’s Day to thank her for having me and taking care of me. I have never heard of this organization, but I will read more. genie
