Actually, we don't celebrate Mothering Sunday in Canada;  we celebrate Mother's Day as is done in the US.

But thank you for the best wishes anyway; they are always appreciated.  :)

Happy Mothering Sunday to all who celebrate it!
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggity beasties and things that go bump in the night...good Lord deliver us!

Happy Mothering Sunday to all.
I recently read that Mothering Sunday was to celebrate the Mother Church, but then was adapted to celebrate all mothers. I agree that all mothers should be celebrated for  the efforts they put in to raising a family.

A very happy mothering day to those across the pond. Mothers certainly deserve thanks and recognition for all they do.

Missed this as we were travelling from South Wales to Cornwall on Sunday.The day got ignored here as it (& Fathers Day) often do as it is a mixed emotions for our (adopted) son. He will happily tell you he has had three Mummies but it is also mixed up with a lot of emotion. However belated Gappy Motherís Day to all who celebrated

Bless him.
It can be such a difficult day which is why I insist it is Mothering Sunday not Mother's Day - we mother and are mothered in so many ways.
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)

Because @DerynifanK reminded me, Happy Mothering Sunday!
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
