Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

It is Mothering Sunday and remember that I don't do flowers or chocolates!
There are a lot of other things that I would appreciate though.
I have a list of suggestions........
I always start with the predictable when asked what do I want for Birthdays, Christmas etc.
George you would be worried if I didn't say his name!
But there are always plenty of other things that I would be happy with.
Buy a goat from FARM-AFRICA
Donate a Solar Cooker
Donate to improve maternity care information worldwide
Vaccines for three pregnant women
Put some pennies in a collecting box next time you see one and think of Nanny. She always supported The National Lifeboat Association but anything Pink Ribbon would be good too.
If you insist on buying me something then there is always the choice of the following
Anything Fair Trade
A couple of energy saving light bulbs
A plant from from the Riverside Market on Fitzhamon Embankment

And last but not least........
Spend a minute thinking about Sally Clark and her family.

Obituary: Sally Clark

Sally Clark, who was wrongly jailed for the murder of her two sons, has been found dead at her home.Her family say she never recovered from the trauma of her ordeal.
Sally Clark was wrongly jailed for three years after being found guilty of murdering her newborn sons Christopher and Harry.Although cleared by the Court of Appeal in January 2003, a family statement following her death at the age of 42 said she never fully recovered from the effects of this "appalling miscarriage of justice".Three judges decided that the conviction of the solicitor, who used to live in Wilmslow, Cheshire, was "unsafe".Reacting to the appeal court decision, she said: "Today is not a victory. We are not victorious. There are no winners here."We have all lost out. We simply feel relief that our nightmare is finally at an end."

Think about all the mothers, those who are still with us and those who are not.

Thank you.

Happy Mothering Sunday to you! Thank you for the good things you give us to think about. What a sad story about Sally Clark! What she suffered is an injustice of the worst kind. I cannot even bear to imagine it.




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
