Although today isn’t mothers day in Ireland, I’d like to wish a very Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers reading this post today. I really hope you are being spoiled, and that you are appreciated for all that you do.
I know there are many mothers out there who will be having less than perfect mothers day, and to you especially I wish the very best day you can have today.
To the mothers who are sitting back, enjoying their families and opening presents,
To the mothers who are parenting alone and are too busy to take the time right now to enjoy the day,
To the mothers who have gone to the ends of the earth and back again for their children,
To the mothers who may have fallen out with a son or daughter and are wishing things were different,
To the mothers who are caring for children with special needs or illness,
To the mothers who have seen their children grow up, leave home and forge their own lives,
To the mothers who have now become grandmothers and greatgrandmothers.
To the mothers who have lived though a son or daughter leaving this world before their time,
To the mothers who have lost their own mothers recently,
This day is for you.
Take 5 minutes today to have a cup of tea/coffee/whatever your tipple and raise a toast to mothers the world over.
We deserve it.
