Are you listening Mother?

Just yesterday a young mother rescued her daughter from a tyrant trying to sell her baby at a table-top sale...
I tried to get the best price but she was determined to hang on to her priceless baby. Shame on her granddad for the way he looked after his granddaughter while her parents checked the sale out.

Isn't she gorgeous?

I enjoyed reading about some great Biblical mothers today. I also enjoyed having the family around to honour their mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

I thought of my own mother who struggled to bring me up and who, on many occasions, protected me by staying the hand of my violent father who was intent on hurting me. I fear that I didn't thank her enough. If I had my time again it wouldn't be said quietly and rushed with the possibility of it not having being heard. I'd make certain she heard me.

Women are pretty special.

If anyone reading this has a special person in their life, tell them so... loud and clear!


  1. This was a very poignant post, Ken. It must have been very difficult for your poor old mum.

  2. Hi Julie
    Yes, she had quite a difficult life.
    What I really regret during the last ten years she was around was not making the most of key moments and opportunities. When I cleared a box of memorabilia recently, I came across some photos of her. I think that's what triggered off things.
