Happy Mothers Day to all you Mums out there. You do a great job, often in difficult circumstances. Thank you. I still find it strange over 5 years after my own Mother’s death not to be buying a card and some chocolates/flowers.
The horrendous killing of Sarah Everard has emphasised again the vulnerability of women here in the UK. In world cultures where women are commonly regarded as having less value than men the situation is even harder for Christian women, whether Mothers or not. They suffer both for their faith and their gender. The Open Doors See.change campaign seeks to make a real difference, drawing attention to the often hidden, frequently complex and deliberately violent nature of women’s suffering. The attached video is Amina’s story from Nigeria.
My “Live like a North Korean” food experiment is now in its second day and I’m already feeling tired and hungry on one meal of soup and bread daily. It’s funny how much of life fits into a rhythm based on mealtimes too! But my desire for a piece of cake or chocolate is nothing compared to what so many around the world are going through.
The slight upsides are more time and the opportunity to try new recipes-today was a new variation of broccoli 🥦 soup. For you cooks out there, you are not supposed to puree the florets hence the lumpiness. Have a good week!
