It's Mother's Day In Australia, so Happy Mother's Day! I was quite surprised to learn it is in America also, even though our Father's Day is in a different month (September in Oz.)
Mother's Day is celebrated with great zeal and fanfare around the world, including Australia. For those who dislike hoo ha, I think a special day marks an excellent opportunity to thank and express the deep felt gratitude to one’s mother, the leading lady of the family. These days there are a lot of different family configurations, but there is probably a mum in there somewhere. Mum/Mom should sit back and relax on this particular day, and children (if they're old enough) take up their responsibilities, like bringing Mum burnt toast and sugary tea slopped over the breakfast tray. The little red rose in the chipped coffee cup makes it all extra cute.
