It’s Mothering Sunday. Not the way any of us would chose to celebrate it, but a day when we give thanks for those who mother us- the ones who care for us and look after us. Today we give thanks for our own mothers, and for all those working to protect us individually and as a nation from the Coronavirus. Above all we give thanks that we are mothered, nurtured and protected by God, who loves us like a mother.

It’s important to make time, when things are hard, to remember that we still have much to be thankful for.
