Last Tuesday was Mother's Day
in Macedonia (actually International Women's Day).
I thought that you might like to see
some of the pictures I took of the children
making and wrapping gifts for their mothers.
This was the first time most of the women
knew there WAS such a thing as Mother's Day -
let alone - get a gift.
The next day the mothers who brought their
children to school all had their new scarves
tied around their heads.
The paper flower bouquets that the children made
went in a very special place in the home so
that the mothers could remember their
first ever Mother's Day!
