I do trust you had a great long week-end and quality time with your near and dear. We also hope you were able to come up with 4-ball prizes for our own TMC Parents’ Council Golf Day this Friday. Thank you to those who have supported- every bit helps to enable us to make provision for the extras on campus, thereby benefitting us all!
“Honour thy Father and thy Mother that thy days may be long…” (Exodus 20 v.12)
I know I will see the concern of mothers for their sons on the side of our TMC fields during our rugby matches against Highbury this Wednesday and our netball games against St Mary’s on Thursday. As it always does, it will make me aware yet again of the love parents have for their children, and the way they do not want them to come to any harm. As this coming Sunday is Mothers’ Day, I think of mothers, in particular, and the very special role they play in their children’s lives. We truly want to honour mothers and say thank you to them, and to our dads, for their parenting roles and for all that they do. I want to share these thoughts on moms with you:
One Flaw in Moms/ Women
Moms have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and carry burdens, yet hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream; they sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in. They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without, so their family can have; they go to the doctor with a frightened child.
They love unconditionally. They cry when their children excel,
Cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies and grieve at the loss of a family member,
Yet they are strong, when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colours.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have the compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say and everything to give.
HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN, IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH. (With thanks to Rebecca LaCount)
We are once again on our annual winter woollies drive for Outreach. As the colder weather is due to set in, let us think of those less fortunate than we are, and make every effort to donate something warm to support those in need to keep the winter cold at bay.
Wishing you all the best for the week ahead!
