Blessings to all Mothers on Mothering Sunday

Amongst my many favourite books is ” To Bless the Space Between Us” by John O ‘Donohue. I love the beauty and thought behind his writing and this particular book is one to treasure and dip into time and time again for the many lovely blessings contained within. One that is came to mind immediately today is this one called ” For a Mother”



Your voice learning to soothe

Your new child

Was the first home- sound

We heard before we could see



Your young eyes

Gazing on us

Was the first mirror 

Where we glimpsed

What to be seen

Could mean.




Your nearness tilled the air,

An umbilical garden for all the seeds

Of thought that stirred in our infant hearts.


You nurtured and fostered this space

To root all our quietly gathering intensity 

That could grow nowhere else.




Formed from the depths beneath your heart,

You know us from the inside out.

No deeds or seas or others

Could ever erase that.


Happy Mothers day everyone
