    Love the term "mothering"! So that it includes all the people who care for the children! Enjoy!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    The term mothering is the church title for commercial Mother's Day. It was the Sunday servants were allowed home to visit their mother.and it is the day all churches in a parish have one big service ie all going to main or mother church.

    over in UK flowers chocolate and meals out cost a fortune this day.

    I have gotten more mothering this past 10 weeks than since I was born, I feel 01-26-2015 fractured my right shoulder in 3 sections and had a break just above the elbow. Thank God for a loving daughter that could come an take over my care. Husband was/is grateful for her also. on the bend starting to pace around my sewing m machine wishing for the ability to sew again.
    Freedom to speak is a gift ;please don't take it from us..

    So sorry! It made me ache all over just to read what you have been through! Take care!
    Do not worry about the past, for it is history,
    Do not worry about the future, for it is a mystery,
    Only live for today, for it is a gift, that is why it is called "the present."

    Thank you for the explanation, Dottymo! Really wish the USA would adopt Boxing Day, though!
