HAPPY Mother's Day! Thanks Mum for a lifetime of unconditional love, support and encouragement. Thank you for being so many things to me: a teacher, a nurse, a friend, an inspirationYou've always shown me what is important in life, and today, that is you. 

Being the eldest of eight children – yes, I have five sisters and two brothers – mother is my rock, our rock. She is my measuring stick – and I have a lot to measure up to, believe me!!!! If I can be half the woman my mother is, I'll be happy. 

She sacrificed so much to make sure we had everything we needed, and did so with such good grace and humility.  She has given so much to so many, and still has so much more to do. She has big shoulders and an even bigger heart …

So sorry I can't be there to spend the day with you … but I am thinking of you. And what better way to say I love you, than with fresh flowers. 

And happy Mother's Day to all mothers!
