Mother's Day 2011


Today Mother's Day will bring together mothers, daughters, sisters,
sisters-in-law, mothers-in-law, friends and families in more ways than one.


Although for many of us Mother's day is every day since it is a 24/7 job,
it is indeed in every little success or failure, in all ups and downs, and
with
many tears and smiles that we celebrate our motherhood in the daily
happenings that bring us closer to our children and to one another.


We must not forget those who, although not natural mothers, are indeed
doing
a mother's job beautifully and those include adoptive mothers,
relatives who
are acting as mothers, teachers, carers and sisters in orphanages to mention a few.


For me Mother's Day is definitely every day as I see our children succeeding and persevering in their studies, in taking decisions, in everyday little acts of friendship with me, in showing their appreciation for what I and their Dad do for them...it is in the trust they show in us. Of course I love that extra little bit of recognition and attention and the way they show their appreciation in their gifts on this special day!


This is the first Mother's Day that I am missing my Mum since her passing was this year but I will try and dwell on all the good things she taught me and the lovely memories we made together when she was alive, this way I will celebrate her life.


May the bond that we feel with our children today strengthen with each day and with each experience that brings us closer to one another.
