Have a wonderful Mothering Sunday; may God's blessings be with you, your Mother or anyone who is like a Mother to you.

History of Mothering Sunday

Most Sundays in the year churchgoers in England worship at their nearest parish or 'daughter church'.

Centuries ago it was considered important for people to return to their home or 'mother' church once a year. So each year in the middle of Lent, everyone would visit their 'mother' church - the main church or cathedral of the area.

Inevitably the return to the 'mother' church became an occasion for family reunions when children who were working away returned home. (It was quite common in those days for children to leave home for work once they were ten years old.)

And most historians think that it was the return to the 'Mother' church which led to the tradition of children, particularly those working as domestic servants, or as apprentices, being given the day off to visit their mother and family.

As they walked along the country lanes, children would pick wild flowers or violets to take to church or give to their mother as a small gift.

V's 1 and 2 are well worked images, V's 3 and 4 excellent in their own right. The commentary is fascinating too.

Beautiful presentations, Carol, a happy day to those of you out celebrating with your mother, and a sad day for those of us who have lost our mothers from this life, but who will always be remembered. Carol

Late coming to these lovely images.
Interesting info' to read too thank you.
I always found a 'proper, Mothering Sunday' card for my Mum as she
preferred that to 'Mother's Day'.
