It’s Mothering Sunday here in the UK, and I’m sitting here replete from a posh pub lunch with the family.
Today, of all days, it’s easy to remember just how blessed I am.
My children are fit and healthy. They attend an amazing school with fantastic teachers and wonderful friends.
We are surrounded by family and friends and have time to spend with them.
Our home is warm and welcoming. We have good food and plenty of it.
They have a Daddy who loves them, is present in their lives, and works hard to provide for them.
We have books and toys and games and pens and paper. We can walk in the park, ride our bikes and dance.
So today, as I’m surrounded by the people I love most in the world, I’m counting my blessings.
But I’m sparing a thought for those not as fortunate as I am.
And raising a glass to mothers everywhere, and wishing them the best of times this Mothering Sunday.
