History of Mother's Day - Mom2Mom

The Greeks celebrated the holiday in honour of Rhea, the God of motherhood, while the ancient Romans celebrated a similar holiday in honour of Cybele, a mother goddess. Cybele’s festivities took place from March 22-25.

While today’s Moms aren’t quite as lucky as Cybele in having 3 days set aside, just for them, it is nice to know that the practice dates back so long ago.

In reality, the Mother’s Day that we have come to know and practice actually has its closest roots in Merry Old England where it was known as Mothering Sunday. Taking place on the fourth Sunday during Lent, it began as a day when servants and apprentices were allowed to return home for the day to visit their mothers. They often brought with them a gift, sometimes called a Mothering Cake, which consisted of fruitcake or a fruit-filled pastry. By the time of the 19th Century, the holiday had all but fizzled out.

Marcus is planning on starting his path towards to a driving licens. We found an online state approved site, Safeway Driving School, for him to complete his driving education course. The school offers 6 hour driving experience and DMV Road Test at an additional cost. Charles and I are planning on buying him an older truck or SUV. Since the gas prices have increased I believe we'll find plenty of deals.

Listen to No Commercial Radio at Work and Home - Yahoo Launchcast Radio

Do you get tired of all the talk, commercials and same scngs every hour? Well these days we definitely have many options to standard radio.

These days I enjoy listening to Launchcast Radio from Yahoo. It's affordable and doesn't include any additional equipment. For around $35.99/year you can listen to many genres of music. My favorites being Martini Jazz, Comtemporary Christian, and Lite Office Music.

And since we have a laptop we can listen to our favorites anywhere in the house, work or away.
