“Mums are like buttons…
they hold it all together.”

Yesterday was Mother’s Day, or more correctly ‘Mothering Sunday’, here in the UK. This quotation comes from the card sent to me by my youngest son.

    And even when a button falls off or becomes loose, moms can do a quick repair and make everything right. πŸ™‚
    No matter how old I become, the thought of mother is very comforting.

    PS When Im in a lot of pain I always hear myself saying “oh mum” and she has been gone 17 years. She still holds me together 😊

    Happy Mothering Sunday…

    Ours in the States is May 11. πŸ™‚

    I like the buttons bit. I have a tin of buttons from my one grandmother…
    and now some also from my Mother-in-law’s collection.

      I have tins of buttons from both Mum and Mum-in-law. Some I have passed on to my daughter for her craft-work. We used to play with the button box when we were ill as children.

        I can just imagine that if they ever have to take apart my grandmother’s home… how many buttons they’ll find in the heating grates πŸ™‚

        Wonderful memories… even if I can’t remember them clearly.
