Mothering Sunday, complete with sundae!

video

Each year we celebrate "Mothering Sunday" which is British Mother's Day, held each year in March. That way, mom gets two Mother's Day events. This time, we went out to eat at Islands in Palm Desert. She will probably kill me for putting this video on the blog, but it will be worth it because 1) it was nice to see her go out and have fun (she has been quite immobile lately with a major back problem), and 2) it was nice to see her indulge in some dessert - a brownie sundae! In the British version, people return to their hometown on Mothering Sunday to visit their home church and spend time with the family...a bit less commercial than the American day, and a bit more cherished and sincere (or so it feels to me).
