Happy Mother's Day!

And Jerusha, a grandchild sounds like the perfect belated Mother's Day present! :)

My daughter seems determined to give me a grand-kitten (she found a throwaway in a box beside the road yesterday), but I am doing my best to resist the temptation, as I really can't afford another mouth to feed and body to pay health care costs for right now. So for Mother's Day, what I'm really hoping for is to find this precious bundle of cute a good forever home.  (The kitten, that is, not my daughter! :D )

That is too cute, Aerlys.  :)

It goes with a song called "Snuggle Puppy." Very fitting for Mother's Day.

So sweet
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Did you know that Anna Jarvis, who first came up with "Mothers' Day" came to hate it and disavow it? 

She started the idea as a political movement to end war and violence; when it became taken over by the sentimentalists, she turned against it and actively campaigned for its abolition.

Anna Jarvis, who came up with the idea of "Mothers' Day" in the US, came to hate the holiday and tried to have it abolished.

She was an anti-war activist who intended Mothers' Day as the center of an international association of women united for peace; when she saw it turned into a sentimental greeting-card holiday she felt betrayed.
