Mothers

For her acceptance speech, when she was given the honor of being inducted into the Logies Hall of Fame, Noni Hazlehurst said this ...


Oh, how I love this. It is what I hope to be one day as a parent and what my Mother has been for me.
I used to watch Noni on playschool as a kid. I loved her. As an adult I've been loving her in the Place to Call Home series. She completely deserved this honor, not that I actually care two hoots about the Logies nor did I watch it, but she is a wonderful actor and someone I admired as a kid. I wanted to be a playschool presenter, like her.


Yesterday, was Mother's Day. Unfortunately I couldn't spend it with my mother, giving her gifts and letting her take a load off. I did however give her a call and chatted for a while.

My Mum is amazing, but maybe I am a little biased. I can't imagine having a different one.
She loves us all, unconditionally.
She is there for us through the ups and downs of life, while still letting us do our 'thing'.  


She might have pretty much brought us up alone, but she still made sure we were nurtured and protected (not cotton woolled). She had an awesome 'village' that she gathered around our family to help us learn and grow.


She has taught us so much, shown us so much and has loved us so much.
I appreciated her as a child and I certainly appreciate her as an adult, even from the other end of the state, especially from the other end of the state.


I couldn't give flowers so I went out and took some photos of some pretty ones for her instead.


Such unique and hardy flowers, yet still so bright and beautiful.


Native bees were enjoying them, despite my company.


 

So to all those special Mother's out there ...


I hope you enjoyed your day.

    1. Thank you! For me, I missed being with my Mum and for her, I think she had a good day with breakfast out with one daughter and chatting to here others. Not as good as us all being home though. Enjoy your week!

  5. Many thanks for including these amazing flowers for SEASONS! Yes, you're blessed to have a mother who gives you the freedom to go your own way! And now hubs and I are watching Supernanny, it's mindboggling that there are parents who do not give their kids "making sense of the world" like you say!
    Have a great week and "see" you very soon:)
