In Norway, they celebrated last month and in Qatar and most of the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa) it’s on 21 March. Having lived in the shadow of the US for 16 years, I know that they will be celebrating in May.
As for the rest of the nations on earth one could spend a good 15-20 minutes on Wikepedia braining up on this – as one just did. In Panama it is 8 December – Feast of the Immaculate Conception and my Goddaughter Alexis’ birthday.
This makes it clear that being a mother is seen as something to celebrate! So here’s to us mothers, to our mothers and to all those who have been mother figures to us!
Almost anything I would say has already been said and probably more eloquently. See my friend’s blog
I am eternally grateful to the Great Spirit that my mum is alive as I journey through motherhood, as she is like a lighthouse in the storm – I did say it would be difficult to stay away from the clichés. As well as it gives me the opportunity to apologise for having been such a pain at times, especially when we moved from Trini to the UK.
Love you mummy.
