A poem for Mother's Day from my son

Mothering Sunday/Mothers day



Mother’s Day- what does it mean to me? Yes it is the day when mum’s are usually treated as queens and feted with flowers and gifts, but for members of the Church of England it is also a time of religious observance. Along with other Christian churches in Europe Mothering Sunday is celebrated on the fourth Sunday following Lent with services in most churches celebrating mothers. In our church we have extended this to anyone who cares for another person. I was intrigued to find that Mothers day is celebrated in other countries on different dates. The USA which I consider to be a christian country celebrates Mothers Day on the second Sunday in May. but I guess whenever the celebration occurs it is a good time for most mothers.




A poem for Mother's Day

Dear Mum

A posie of flowers I bring you this day

They were actually collected not far away

There's bluebells and dafodills and blossoms too

but this morning I did not know what to do!

I could get you chocolate but that's too plain

I could get you a card, but that's just lame

I can't get you nothing! I thought to myself

and right now, I'm not really brimming with wealth

I thought a little, then it came to me!

I'll get something special, special from me!

so that's why I got them, the colourful things!

Far better than jewels, gold or rings!

as you go to bed my love remember

a new Lego set is out in September!

Love from Dan, Tiggy and Bagera

footnote

Dan is 13 and this poem was accompanied by a glass with a daffodil and bluebells and blossom from our garden. The poem is still attached to my dressing table and when I need reassurance that I am a good mum, it is there, right in front of me

      Peggy W- thanks he is such an imaginative boy, although he is entering his teenage years and growing like there is no tomorrow- already taller than me, his sisters and his dad, so looks like he will be my little boy no longer,

      How very sweet and imaginative of your son to gift you with that poem and picked flowers. Keep the note. You'll love reading it for years and years to come and can perhaps even "gift" it back to him in a scrapbook / photo album of memories when he is a grown man someday with kids of his own.

      somewayoutahere- yes he has his moments but like all 13 year olds he loves the playstation!

      LVidoni5- with everyone else in the home working he uses us as a comparism, he cant work til he is 16 and money for odd jobs cant compete!

      anginwu- thankyou- he is very imaginative and like me, often has his nose in a book when he is not on the playstation or with his lego
