Mother's Day

I was woken by a six-year old who 'gets' mother's day this year and wanted to surprise me with her handmade card and gift.  I'm thinking that chocolates and flowers in twenty years' time will be a disappointment in comparison.  

Remembered to be thankful for my armful of children, but am sparing a thought for all those people who find today hard: those who have lost their mothers, women who have lost a child, women who yearn to be a mother. Bracketed and braced by my own wonderful Mum, and three children who have fulfilled a need I didn't know I had,  my cup is running over.
