Today was Laetare Sunday (Mothering Sunday) and as I thought back on how we have celebrated recently (last year, there is even a similar photo of Arwen; in 2011, and in 2010 along with Ideas for the day I see a familiar pattern for our days.
I guess this is what it is with tradition isn't it? You do want to repeat those family activities and celebrations so that they become part of the family culture.
Today however we did not make a cake as we have done in the past and decorate with pink and roses, we did not make or buy a fruitcake to have as part of the 'Mothering Sunday' that is such an English tradition.
I was really struck at how much Arwen has grown over the year and it is so sweet to see little Trahaearn now adding his own special prayer as well.
I think that emphasis the JOY we find as we come closer to the end of Lent and the most blessed event of Easter Day.
As it is Autumn season we have been looking for signs of a change in the seasons and one we found today was when I was chatting to the older three (at home today) I had an acorn come fall and hit me on the head.
That usually motivates them into the car.
My fault I have not been in the garden at all for months!!
Blessed Feast Day and many prayers as we continue on with our Lenten Journey.
Blessings to you and your homes,
