Mother’s Day

The love of a mother is something so difficult to explain and also the most amazing gift I’ve been blest with. I’m astounded at how selfless and unconditionally a mother loves her children. Fr. John who blessed our marriage shared the following story which describes what happened for most of my childhood and it moved me to tears.


The best part of getting married, apart from the unending love of my wife Ana, is the gift of a second mother! What more could I ask for! This year for Mother’s Day we recorded a song that I’ve been meaning to sing for mummy ever since I first heard it years ago – The Perfect Fan. The lyrics are below:


It takes a lot to know what is love

It’s not the big things, but the little things

That can mean enough

A lot of prayers to get me through

And there is never a day that passes by

I don’t think of you

You were always there for me

Pushing me and guiding me

Always to succeed

You showed me

When I was young just how to grow

You showed me

Everything that I should know

You showed me

Just how to walk without your hands

Cause mom you always were

The perfect fan

God has been so good

Blessing me with a family

Who did all they could

And I’ve had many years of grace

And it flatters me when I see a smile on your face

I want to thank you for what you’ve done

In hopes I can give back to you

Be the perfect son
