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
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
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
