A friend of my who is from Lebanon tells me that the first day of Spring in his country is Mother's Day. He send the following that I share with you:
"Happy Mother’s Day to every Mom and Mom to Be… "I will bless her and will surely give you a son by her. I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her." Genesis 17:16
I rather like the idea of the first day of Spring being Mum's Day. After all, isn't this the time that earth awakes from her slumber, a renewal, a rebirth of life? And mothers are indeed life givers.
So I am going to make this a tradition in our home as well;
to each of you who are mums, mums-to-be, grannies and even mums to others, Happy Mother's Day.
