We want photos of you and mum to celebrate Mother’s Day
WE ASKED our readers to send in photos of them with their mothers and we received a few photos.
It’s not too late to send in a photo to us as we’d like to make a gallery, online and in the paper, to honour the mothers of our region.
Let’s face it, they are part of the reason we are here, so some recognition is certainly deserved.
We look forward to seeing your photos.
Del Marie Mc sent us a beautiful photo of her and her mum with an even more beautiful story.
“This lady is my darling mum. She no longer remembers my name and doesn't know I'm her daughter,” she posted.
“Mum has dementia yet the love we have for each other remains as strong as ever.”
Jess Ind wrote about her best friend, her mother.
This beautiful lady is my best friend, my guidance and my biggest support,” she posted.
“I'd be lost without her and she is a wonderful "Minnie" to my children. We are so lucky to have this strong, independent lovely woman in our lives.”
Naomi Mishell is our poet who honoured her mother with the following poem:
"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she is growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is the the heart of purest gold,
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER", a word that means the world to me. Love you mum.
Even journalists have mothers which The Northern Star’s entertainment editor Javier Encalada proved with this lovely photo of him with his mum when he was a little tacker.
“This lady hasn't seen me in eight years. She lives in Chile,” he posted.
“She endures the distance because she knows I'm a happy chap working as a journo for a certain Northern Rivers newspaper.”
Kristy Elks wrote a heart-warming post to honour her mother.
“My Mum is the most amazing , patient , caring person. She doesn't have a bad word to say about anyone or anything,” she posted.
“She is always there for any of her family or friends at any time , day or night . She's my inspiration.”
