Mothering Sunday

Yesterday a neighbour called by.
“We’re putting together a WhatsApp group
to help each other out.”

Then a note dropped through the door
offering help to those self-isolating or alone.

Today is Mothering Sunday,
a day for mothers
and more besides.

Mothering is about supporting,
nurturing, encouraging
and unconditional love.

Lord, may this be us.
