This Sunday will be Mother’s Day here in Australia, and it is the time when all the memories of my belated mother are coming back into my mind.

My mother was quite strict when we were children. Endlessly, she told us all about the right and proper things to do in this life. This tough love continued until we reached young adulthood.  BUT…soon after we were getting married, she only gave advice when she was asked to. I love and thank you for being so wise, mama.

A Mother’s Love is Patient and Forgiving,

When all others are forsaking.

It never fails nor falters,

Even though the heart is breaking…….

– Helen Rice

For all mothers who will celebrate their special day:

Mother's Day
