I think the majority of my watchers are not from Australia, Mothers Day here is coming up on the 12th.
I thought it might interest some to know that Mothers Day was founded by Bereaved mothers. Mothers who had lost their children.

Hallmark has got it completely wrong.
"Our society can commercialize all they want. Because in my heart of hearts I know the real meaning of this day came from pain, loss, and grief -- the same things I feel on any given Mothers Day. And from now on, when people urge me to celebrate the day, I will tell them this:
I'll celebrate with you as long as you will first mourn with me. It is the combination of the two that lends itself to the true meaning of Mothers Day!"
