“Mum's love is special; she scolds to discipline, she nags with good intentions and she punishes to teach – but deep down, she is all love.”
“Her heart is forever young – she enjoys dancing, laughing, and striking poses while taking photos. She seems just like an old friend.”
“Besides being our mum, she's also our storyteller, peacemaker, doctor, counsellor, fashion critic, financial adviser, and best friend.”
“My mum reminds me that the happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.”
“My mother did not go to school but she succeeded in making sure that each of us got a tertiary education.”
“My mum is inspiring, loving, emotional, encouraging, and kicks me in the butt when I need it! She is awesome!”
“My mum raised three children all born within four years, while still managing to look stylish and gorgeous!”
“My foster mum took me in when I was 13. She was there for me through my teenage years, and she is still there today. That is what you call a mum.”
“She's generous, loving and forgiving – even after all the terrible things we put her through as children!”
“She understands what it is like to be our age and she talks to us about when she was a teenager. She's a great listener.”
“Her 1000 watt smile can light up a room! People love being around my Mum like moths to a light.”
“Mum is creative and inspired, selfless and kind, motivated and smart. She's still improving herself and trying to have new experiences every day!”
“At 86, mum is eternally young, with an inquiring mind and an ever-present sense of fun. Intelligent, thoughtful and a text queen!”
“In Mum's house there is always time for a cup of tea and 'a slice of something' for anyone who knocks on the door.”
“Mum's sight is nearly gone, but she always sees the best in everyone, and the humour in every situation. The best kind of sight!”
“She hugs me like only a mother can with her warm, strong arms that melt away all the problems of the world.”

Our Mother No one would believe, what my mother’s done for me Even when I err, she keeps me company I’ve pushed her to the limits, of tolerance and pain And yet she still comes through, and loves me just the same My child and I live with her, two years since he was born She saw me through the pregnancy, though her patience it was worn She was my partner at the birth, gave me courage to see it through And now she’s welcomed us at home, a love so strong and true It would take too long to tell, how much I’ve put her through In years gone by, right to this day, she’s every right to do What many parents do these days, to turn their backs on children But not my Mum, the special one, she’s there for the duration With this short rhyme I hope you’ll see, how special my Mum is not just to me My son, my sister, my brother too, there’s love enough to see us through The trials of life be what they may, or just the stress of day to day I know she’ll never let us down, her love, a warm and cosy eiderdown.
