It’s Mothering Sunday today.
Everyone has (or had) a Mother, Mum, Mom, Ma, Mama, Mummy, whatever you like to call her.
For some, they are no longer with us, but we remember them often, not just today.
Many, like me, are not as close as we’d like to be, be it distance or emotionally, but that doesn’t mean we love her any less, nor that we aren’t thinking of her.
I wrote this for my Mum’s handmade card this year and would like to dedicate it to Mothers everywhere:
A Mother is like an exquisite bloom,
Her loving smile brightens any room,
Her open arms let you know she’s there
To surround you with her tender care.
As years go by and we all age,
Memories are written on every page
Of the mental book of our life within,
Filled with love to the very brim.
And so on Special Days like this,
When we are not close enough to kiss
The cheek of the face we loved to touch,
Of a Mum who means so very much.
Happy Mother’s Day to you all
