It's Mother's Day here in the UK


Happy Mother’s Day to all mums out there, as well as to women who have been like mothers to others!  And even though it isn’t mother’s day yet back home – will include my mum too who has made me the mother I am today:  fiercely loving and protective of my daughter.  Yes, I am my mother’s daughter and I’m proud of that.

And here’s a quote all mums (dads too) will know:

“Sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck. This is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood – finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same you could not live without.”
― Jodi Picoult, Perfect Match
