Were you greeted this morning by smiling faces? Cards? Flowers? Freshly cooked bacon and eggs? Wafts of coffee or tea? We hope your family is showering you with love and affection. Sometimes the best gift of all is simply a cuddle or a hug from your loved ones.
Today we honour Mothers everywhere. Those snuggling their little babies tight, those with empty arms, those who’s ‘babies’ are now grown and have moved away. We think of the children both big and small who no longer have their Mothers by their sides.
This week we organised 150 small gift's for Mother's Day. The gifts were distributed through hospitals in Perth to Mother's of current NICU/SCN babies and high-risk, hospital bed resting soon to be Mums. For many this will be their very first Mother’s Day and they will be spending it with their son or daughter in NICU/SCN, or still in their tummy with the unknown ahead. We hope the NICU/SCN babies are strong enough for a kangaroo cuddle today and those still baking stay safe for many days and weeks to come.
Please leave us a comment and share with us how you are celebrating today.
Happy Mother’s Day!!
