Today is the spring equinox with equal day and night. So no matter what part of the world you are in today, there is equal light and darkness. Like our photo today we are reminded on the importance of balance in our lives. Whatever we do in life, we always do our best each day to find balance. Photo is from Pixabay

Today March 21st is also World Down Syndrome Day. All of us have come into contact with those with Down Syndrome at one time or other. A person with Down Syndrome is free-spirited, happy and always with a lovely smile. They seem to be able to enjoy the little things in life, in ways that many of us can’t. They also face challenges and many simple things the rest of us take for granted can prove challenging for them. The link to the Irish charity Down Syndrome Ireland is

Thought For The Week

Last Sunday was Mother’s Day and in Ireland it is celebrated in Ireland on the 4th Sunday of Lent. This was a prayer I shared at Mass.

A prayer for all mothers on Mother’s Day

Loving God, we thank you for all mothers and we do so in gratitude and praise for the blessings they bring to us. We thank you for their love, their teachings, their guidance, their wisdom, their patience and their understanding.  Thank you for the beautiful physical, emotional and spiritual gifts they possess. We give thanks for how they share these gifts constantly with us.

Sometimes we take these gifts for granted, but on Mother’s Day, we remind all our Mums how special you are. Thank you for everything. Thank you for all the love you share with us. We ask God to abundantly bless you today, to protect you, to keep you in good health and to continue guiding you in all you do for us. We also remember Mum’s deceased, we haven’t forgotten you, we ask you to hold us close in your love as we remember you with love today. Amen
