May 2009: Mother's Day

"HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY" -- To All Who are Celebrating 'Mother's Day' on May 10, and to Those Who Celebrated on March 22.


I am sure you must have had a great time today. We in UK celebrated Mother's Day on 22nd March this year.

I like to share something very special with all you mothers. I am thoroughly spoiled every year on Mother's Day, breakfast in bed, special lunch and dinner, and flowers! But I remember the first time I was given 'Breakfast in bed" on Mother's Day! My son was five yrs old and he came up to my bed room in the morning with a tray that he could barely carry, and on it were two small sprigs of flowers from the garden, a small glass of orange juice and two slices of toast, almost black! I was so shocked that he made it all himself! ”Happy Mother’s Day Mum”, he said with a kiss, and of course I was in heaven! I had the juice and then both slices of toast, to the last bit! He waited till I finished and then, "Did you like it Mum?” he asked -- I kissed him and told him that I loved it -- tastiest slices of toasts that I have ever had!! I was so touched that it brought tears to my eyes, and it still does when I think about it!

He is a big boy now, but still spoils me on Mother's Day with 'Three course lunch and dinner’, of course after my breakfast in bed -- only now it's the 'English breakfast' with all the trimmings and a big bouquet of flowers!!

There are different versions how the idea of Mothering Sunday started – it is a time when children pay respect to their mothers. It was celebrated in the UK on the fourth Sunday in Lent since the 16th Century and people visited their nearest big church or the Cathedral on this day. There is no fixed date for 'Mothering Sunday' in the UK -- it's still the fourth Sunday in Lent, though it’s mostly called ‘Mother’s Day’ now a days. It was also called 'Refreshment Sunday or Mid-Lent Sunday', as the fasting rules for Lent were relaxed on this day, reminding people of the ‘Feeding of the Five Thousand’. On this day, the young British girls and boys who worked away from home, especially maids and servants, were allowed to visit their family each year -- they would take flowers, cake or eggs for their mother. Mothering Sunday is also known as ‘Simnel Sunday’ because it is tradition to bake Simnel cake on this day.

It is celebrated as ‘Mother’s day now, and on this day ‘Children of all ages’ pay respect to their mothers and thank them for their love and care throughout the year.

“HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY”!
