The support we have received these past 20 months from family, friends, coworkers, medical staff, neighbors and our ward family has been significant and necessary. FDR's Original Mother's Day Sketch. Artists at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing followed FDR's sketch fairly closely, though they cropped the painting at the bottom and realigned the inscriptions to the left. In addition, a bowl of carnations was added to the lower left of the design for balance. The stamp was issued on May 2, 1934. Happy Mother's Day with Pansies Sketch Design. SKU: HMDPSD-4102.

'Modern Mother and Daughter' is a sketch from the third series of French and Saunders, written by and starring Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders. The sketch later served as the basis of Saunders' sitcom Absolutely Fabulous in 1992.


Saffron is an ordinary teenager, busy completing her homework in her bedroom one evening. Her mother, Adriana, enters, dressed in a brightly-printed kaftan, with an acid house-inspired outfit underneath. Adriana tries several times to persuade Saffron to join her party downstairs, inviting her to 'share a joint' with her and her guests, to Saffron's disapproval.

Adriana continues her attention-seeking questioning, disrupting her daughter's attempts to complete her homework. She questions Saffron's university plans – studying physics in Aberdeen, her reluctance to join her mother on holiday, and her warm relationship with her father. (Adriana, by contrast, has nothing but hostility towards her ex-husband.) The sketch ends with Adriana saying she's 'hoping' her boyfriend Jean-Pierre will stay over, to which Saffron hands a pack of condoms to her mother, saying she was aware her mother had run out of them.[1]


The sketch transposes the traditional roles of mother and daughter, with the daughter behaving and dressing conventionally while the mother rebels. This characterisation and the relationship between the two characters was later carried over into Saunders' sitcom Absolutely Fabulous. In the series, Saunders reprised her role as the mother, renamed Edina, while Julia Sawalha played her role as the daughter, Saffron, replacing French. Lines from the sketch were reused in the series, such as Adriana's insistence that it is possible to be a socialist while employing household staff, and Saffron's nickname from her mother of 'Sweetie'.

Description: Here is a face that I bet most of you wouldn't thought to have seen on Dragoart. Here is a very simple, beautiful lesson on 'how to draw Mother Teresa', step by step. This legendary woman was the founder of the Missionaries Charity which is a religious congregation based on Roman Catholic beliefs. The Missionary Charity has over four thousand five hundred sisters that are active in one hundred thirty three countries. Sisters run homes that offer hospice care for people that suffer from HIV and AIDS as well as tuberculosis, leprosy, counseling programs for children and their families, they also run and operate orphanages, schools, and feed people with their soup kitchens. Mother Teresa was born as Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, she is an Indian from West Germany and she was born August 26, 1910 and lived until September 5, 1997. Sister Teresa took her vows as nun in 1931, and it was then that she choose the name 'Teresa'. She wanted t o honor the Saints Therese or Lisieux and Teresa of Avila. When the good sister first started, one of her missions was to teach kids how to read and write but because there was no supplies for them to learn with, she taught them by drawing in the sand or dirt using sticks. Another thing about Mother Teresa that some people don't know of is how she refused to have a celebration dinner after receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. Instead she wanted the one hundred ninety two thousand dollars to go to the poor people of India. Mother Teresa died when she was eighty seven years old, but not before she made a difference in the world. Have fun drawing Mother Teresa folks.
