Mothers Day

Mothers Day is coming up on Sunday, May 14. Have you figured out what you're going to give that special woman? Mothers Day should be just an occasion for giving her gifts and tell her in your own words how much she means to you and how much you appreciate her love. It is a special day in which we celebrate our mothers and to remind them just how beautiful and valuable they are in our lives. Appreciating our mothers and what they have done for us from the day we were born to what we've become today, is a gesture, which not only should be reserved for Mothers Day, but in fact every single day of her life. Mothers Day should be really the day we remind ourselves again just how special and unique she is. Cook for her, pamper her, take her out, serenade her ... whatever, but don't forget the big hugs and kisses and your feelings of love and cherishment of her will make any mum happy. Try out some of these shops for gifts : Deojis Footwear for shoes; Comsol near the roundabout at Knollys Street for computers, TVs and DVDs; Brijlal in Cumming Street for home appliances; Rowell at Downtown Boulevard for the latest DVDs on hire/sale, DVD/MP3 players or TVs; and Boomerang at Thomson Street for jewellery.

Every day is Mother's Day I hope! Partners, children, grandchildren, can show respect and consideration for Mum EVERY DAY! Okay, I think Mother's Day church services are lovely in Fiji, the ladies all in white, and leading worship. I especially am touched by the tradition of solemnly carrying a wreath of flowers through the church to remember mothers who have died during the past year.
I plan to be taking part with a small Fijian congregation in Melbourne on May 14th so I'll have to find a white dress won't I? In our Oz congregation at 9 a.m. in Geelong East, it is a tradition for all the men in the church to sing a special song on Mother's Day!
