We discussed what it means to be a mother, what we love most about our own mums, grandmothers, aunts, and the special women in our lives.

"Being a mother is a constant learning process.
My girls are teaching me every single day, as I have learned from my own mother, about unconditional love and attachment. It’s a strong bond.
I often imagine and feel this invisible thread between my daughters and myself. When my girls were little this thread was quite short and secure but now as they are getting older and approaching teenage years and young adulthood the thread is getting much longer.
As long as my girls know that I am at the end of that thread, no matter what, when or where, then I believe that thread will never be broken."

"If I had to make a list of why my mum is special it would be a mile long, but a few things that stand out are her generosity and willingness to do everything she can for my brother and I to make us happy and successful. She is also a bit of a dork and thinks she has the best dance moves around, inevitably always putting a smile on our faces. I also think the little things she does for me are why she is just so special, like making sure I always have a batch of her famous sausages rolls in my freezer, just in case someone comes over and needs a treat.
The photo I am holding above was taken at my brother’s wedding and represents three generations of strong women in our family. Growing up I spent a lot of time at my grandparents house while my mum was working so being able to enjoy one another’s company all together as adults is a cherished memory."

She is the most intelligent, grounded and caring person I know, and I admire her so much.
My sister, Laura, is another mother I admire, look up to, and celebrate on Mother's Day. Her 2-year-old daughter Lucy means everything to me and I'm the proudest aunty ever. Her new 6-week-old son Oliver is so precious, and to see her with her beautiful, growing family warms my heart."

"As the daughter of a wonderful mother and the mother to 3 wonderful children I am eternally grateful. Grateful for my mother’s constant guidance and support throughout my life, grateful for her sense of style and her sense of humour. Mum has taught me to be extremely resilient, loyal and generous – all of which she is (and perhaps a bit naughty as well). I have huge admiration for my mum and love having her so present in my life – although it is a constant race to see who can talk the most!
My 3 kids (plus 2 pooches and 1 pussycat) – although still works in progress - are my greatest achievement. They have taught me to love, laugh and sometimes get really cross! I am relishing watching them develop into young adults and I look forward to many more years of love and laughter with not only my kids and my husband, but their friends as well.
Motherhood to me is a huge part of who I have become although I hope I teach my children to see me as, primarily their mother, but also an independent person with dreams and goals. Obviously these dreams and goals are closely linked to my role as a mother but it is not the entirety of who I am."
