Reader’s comment: Thanks, Mum


In response to Ann Farmer: Make every day a happy Mother’s Day, paul parmenter wrote:

Just the other day my mother told me about how she first heard of ‘Mothering Sunday’, as it was originally called. It was when she was a little girl, between the two World Wars. She had heard an older woman mention it, and asked her what it meant. The explanation was that on this one day of the year, children would gather flowers from the countryside or hedgerows, and give them to their mothers as a token of gratitude for being born, being given life and having their mothers to look after them. That is what it always meant to her, and that is good enough for me.
