This is what Mother’s Day is all about

Eleven-year-old Niamh gave me a Mother’s day poem on Sunday that I loved more than I can possibly describe. It was written in French, and talked about what kind of flower I would be if I were a flower (an orchid), what kind of emotion I would be if I were an emotion (happiness because I make her happy) and what colour I would be if I were a colour (blue because I like blue).

And then this:

If I could give you anything in the world it would be all my love and a new e-reader because you like to read.
Happy Mother’s Day and I love you so much.
P.S. Sorry for the cheesiness. Madame said we had to copy this layout. But I still want you to have a new e-reader.

This girl is so much like me it is boggling.


Half of this painting was painted by Niamh and the other half by Beatrice. It sure does brighten up a government issue pod.

    I’ve never known two children to take after their parents the way Niamh and Beatrice do; Niamh like you and Beatrice like Tony. And they have both inherited the loving kindness that is so much a part of your natures.
