Mother’s Day 2012

Today is Mother’s Day here in New Zealand and this has long been my favourite quote:

A baby said to god “I hear you are sending me to earth tomorrow.  How am I going to live there being so small and helpless?”
God said “Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you”
The child then said “But here in heaven I don’t have to do anything but sing, smile and be happy”.
God said “Your angel will sing and smile for you and you will feel your angel’s love for you and you will be happy.”
And the child said “But who will protect me?”
And god said “Your angel will protect you even if it means risking its own life”
Then the child said “If I am to leave heaven please tell me my angel’s name”
And god said “You will simply call her Mum.”

I wish you all a happy Mothers’ Day wherever you are, and really hope that the above resonates with you as it does with me.

I have said before that I had a very happy childhood, and while I know that many of you didn’t I know that you will be the best mothers you can be.
