Who are the following people?
Who do you think is the odd one out?
Answers: They are Victoria Beckham, Marg Simpson, The Queen, Mrs Weasley, Mother Theresa and Mummy Pig.
The odd one out? It’s Mother Theresa. She never had a child but was mother to thousands of needy people through her work with the poor, especially in India.
Mothering isn’t just bringing up your own children but giving the care a mother gives to those who need to know they are loved and cared for. Mums, dads, aunties, grannies, grandads, God-parents can each do that.
You might like to thank God for those who have cared for you in your life.
If your mum is with you, you may like to tell her what you appreciate about her.
If she can’t be with you, perhaps you could phone her, email, text or face time her later and let her know what makes her special to you.
And if your mum has died you could spend some time thanking God for the good things you remember about her.
