In Australia we celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May, which is today. Happy Mother’s Day to all mums, and a special prayer for all our mothers who are no longer with us on this earth, but remain with us in our hearts.
One of the loveliest presents I ever received was not a bunch of roses, but a rose bush, the gift that keeps on giving. The plant is now over twenty years old, and holds a special place in my heart.
Admittedly, my husband rather than our daughters came up with this idea, but it was certainly a good one. What is better than a dozen long-stemmed red roses? Many dozen!
It is a perpetual gift that I treasure.
