The Definition of Mothers Day?

This morning I laid in past the alarm clock.

Children on Mothers Day The bedroom door was closed and I wasn’t invited to join the family.

But a cup of tea did miraculously appear next to my bedside!

Then the call came…and I got to leave the bedroom.


The house has been transformed, it was cleaned, polished, tidied and shining. Breakfast was all set out of the table: croissants, jam, fruit with napkins. And then the time had come for┬ámy favourite part of the day…

…the cuddles!

For all the focus on presents, cards and days out, #MothersDay for me is simply about the warmth in your heart after a cuddle from your child.

The warmth of connection.

The warmth of contact.

The warmth of love between a Mother and Child.

This is the definition of Mothers Day.

    Beautifully said, and very true too. I love the way you touch on subjects and issues that we can all relate to and reflect upon.

      Thanks Ingrid, it’s good to know that we’re all experiencing the similar issues even though we’re miles apart!
