Check out the ancient Egyptian goddess Isis, Mother of the Pharaohs, who was celebrated in an annual festival.  Granted, we can’t all re-assemble a slain body and use it to impregnate ourselves (nor do we probably want to), but that was certainly a feat to behold, no doubt.  Read more about the history of Mother’s Day at MothersDayCentral.com.

On a more current and realistic note, we had a terrific Mother’s Day at our house with Pete, his two brothers, and his Mom.  We introduced the crew to my slow-cooked ribs and black beans, then topped it off with a simple brownie, strawberry, and ice cream dessert.
