Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday is the fourth Sunday in Lent.
Mothering Sunday is not a religious celebration, but a traditional one, dating back to the time when many young people had to leave home to get a job as a servant or maid in large houses. 

Mothering Sunday was a holiday for these youngsters and they were allowed to go home to visit their families. For their mothers they would usually take a gift of flowers or a cake. They would often go to church as a family and the girls would make a special meal. 

Today, children often give their mothers a gift and a card on Mothering Sunday. Churches will often celebrate the day by giving flowers to mothers in the congregation and praying for mothers and families. Some have special family services that are suitable for the whole family to take part in.



The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on "donating a mammogram" for free (pink window in the middle).

This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising.

Here's the website! Please pass it along to all the people you know.


Thank you.
