Mother's Day

What is the real meaning of Mothering Sunday?

It is a day honouring mothers and mother churches, celebrated in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in the English-speaking world on the fourth Sunday in Lent since the Middle Ages.

These days because it is such a hugely advertised day we tend to get lost in the commercial impact and of what marketing campaigns tell us that mother’s day should mean. In actual fact it still remains a very personal day, and is unique to each and every one of us. Whether we have a strong relationship with our mother, only communicate on such occasions, or have sadly lost our mother, Mother’s Day can be so different and mean such a different thing from person to person.

This Mother's Day take a moment to reflect and be thankful.
