Mothering....


Nurturing...


Cherishing...


These are things that we can all do, its not the exclusive domain of women who have borne children, nor even of parents. There are times in our lives when we all have to mother, nurture and cherish.


At home with our whole extended family - we even have to "upward-mother" to tweak a management phrase!


At work with our colleagues of all ages and grades, those senior as well as those junior - we are all human, vulnerable and in need of occasionally being mothered.


At leisure, for those who are our friends, those who we socialise with and relax with.


Mothering is part of valuing others. Not necessarily of loving them so much as caring for them.


God is a mothering God... nurturing and cherishing us, helping us grow and learn, encouraging us to strike out alone but always being there when we need support...
