Mothering Sunday...

A "Happy Mother's Day".... to all of our wonderful mums.

"A Mother holds her children's hands for a while
.......their hearts forever."

His Mother
Even He that died for us upon the cross, in the last hour,
in the unutterable agony of death,
was mindful of His mother,
as if to teach us that this holy love
should be our last worldly thought - the last point of earth
from which the soul should take its flight for heaven.

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Mother Love ~ James John Hill

“Who ran to help me when I fell,
And would some pretty story tell,
Or kiss the place to make it well? My mother”

~ Anne Taylor

Reading to Mother ~ John Morgan
