Thankful for my soon-to-be mum friends. Who have been through pain and yet hold on to Hope knowing that one day they will Rise Gladly to nurse their baby in the night. Who are Proverbs31 women and delight themselves in The Lord. They have shown me what strength is and I am so grateful for these friendships.
Thankful for my adopted-mummy friends who do the work of all the mummies and also show me how to deeply understand a child and nurture them into understanding their identity. Who surround their children with so much love & point them to the One who created them , gave them life and Destiny.
Thankful for my friends who don’t have their mum today. Through whatever reason are not able to send a bunch of flowers. I see your bravery, I am moved by your ability to still love other mums and be amazing ones yourselves. You are loved daughters, the King most High is enthralled by your beauty.

Finally I am thankful to my own Mum. Zoe Delaney has been the most inspiring woman. I am thankful for her compassion , her constant love and her intimate closeness with her main love-Jesus. She’s shown me how to be a wife , daughter , mother, nurse , friend and faithful servant. I love you.
To all the Mums in my life, I am so thankful for each of you and all you teach me, mainly on the days you think your doing a bad job! You each are helping mold me to hopefully be something like you when I myself have my child to mother . Thank you, Happy Mothers Day.
