Mothering Sunday was, in fact, the day when those who worked away from home were allowed a day off to go back to their mother church.
However, a thread of 170 posts about the unhappiness of one mother who may not feel that the father of her children is appreciating her is, perhaps, not the thread to post:
Mothers' Day divides smug mothers from women who have not given birth, have lost their child in one way or another, who have ungrateful offspring. Keep a day for your mother by all means but shut up about it. It's private
I don't think anyone is being smug on here, just trying to be helpful and sympathetic.
