From the littlies (with their pearls of wisdom)

To my Mum,
Mum you are magic - you make me feel better without medicine.
Happy Mother’s Day

Dear Mum
Sometimes you make me do something that I do not what to do but I still love you.
Happy Mother’s Day

To Mum,
Dads are taller & stronger, but mum you have all the real power because it’s you I have to ask if I want to sleep over at my friend's.
Happy Mother’s Day

From the older kids

You filled my days with rainbow lights,
Fairytales and sweet dream nights,
A kiss to wipe away my tears,
Gingerbread to ease my fears.
You gave the gift of life to me
And then in love, you set me free.
I thank you for your tender care,
For deep warm hugs and being there.
I hope that when you think of me
A part of you
You'll always see.


How did you find the energy, Mum
To do all the things you did,
To be teacher, nurse and counsellor
To me, when I was a kid.

How did you do it all, Mum,
Be a chauffeur, cook and friend,
Yet find time to be a playmate,
I just can't comprehend.

I see now it was love, Mum
That made you come whenever I'd call,
Your inexhaustible love, Mum
And I thank you for it all.

From an adult child...

You will never know how special you are to me. You have taught me many things, including how to be a parent. Over the years I’ve watched you and today I walk in your footsteps. I hope I can be as good an example to my children and a great role model just like you. I love you mum with all my heart.

From a husband to a wife...

I know it's been a hard task
the things we ask of you.
You should know you're very special
for all the things you do.

I'm thankful for a wife like you;
no one could take your place.
A heart like yours for those in need
is a thing one can't replace.

So thanks again for being there
and for all the things you do,
no man could be so lucky
to have a love like you!

Happy Mother's Day
