Since visiting Unichurch last weekend, I’ve been thinking about my mother. Last Sunday was mothers’ day and in the chat-to-the-person-next-to-you time, the service leader suggested the question “what I appreciate about her” as an ice-breaker (don’t you love it?)

I actually didn’t think at all right then, but listened to the young woman who was next to me. But this week as I was milling around the house doing whatever, it occurred to me; my mother never once got involved in anything which took her focus (or responsibility) away from our family for a single minute.

I appreciate that so much.
