Mothers Day

Thank you to everyone who has sent in messages about their Mum’s – it’s lovely to hear about such inspiring and loved Mothers. I have found each message extremely touching and it has been very difficult to pick a winner. 

Congratulations to Catherine Gallois on her winning entry:

Cancer. Mastectomy. Alcoholic husband. Great losses. Nonetheless, she brings none of that to our lives, but instead: Unconditional Love. Steadiness. Joy. Endlessly giving spirit. Inspiration.

My mum has a beautiful, generous spirit. Every Christmas she makes 3000 cakes to be donated to homeless people – and I couldn’t be more proud!

At 54, my mum isn’t a style guru, socialite, or retired-model turned world ambassador.
 She's my mum and that's all the inspiration I need.

My Mum is inspirational because...... she brought up three beautiful girls whilst working full time, completing a degree then a masters degree and is now studying for her PhD. She is courageous, strong, committed and determined and I believe they are inspirational assets for any mother to have.

She volunteers, she sews, she crafts and she gives. She dances, she
smiles, she loves and she lives. She is my MAMA.
