Honouring All Little Fighter Mothers
Today Team Little Fighters Cancer Trust would like to reach out to all Mothers to wish them all Love, Light & Strength on this Mother’s Day.
A Child’s Angel
Once upon a time there was a child ready to be born.
One day he asked God: “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow,
how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?”
GOD replied, “Among the many angels, I chose one for you.
She will be waiting for you and will take care of you.”
“But tell me, here in Heaven, I don’t do anything else but sing and smile,
that’s enough for me to be happy.”
“Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you every day.
And you will feel your angel’s love and be happy.”
“And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me,
if I don’t know the language that men talk?”
“Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear,
and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.”
“And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?”
“Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.”
“I’ve heard that on earth there are bad men. Who will protect me?”
“Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life.”
“But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.”
“Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you
the way for you to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you.”
At that moment there was much peace in Heaven,
but voices from earth could already be heard.
And the child in a hurry asked softly: “Oh God, if I am about to leave now,
please tell me my angel’s name.”
“Your angel’s name is of no importance,
you will call your angel: ‘Mommy’.”

While most mothers celebrate Mother’s Day gleefully and get really spoiled, not every mother feels the same…
Mother’s Day is not a happy day for every mother…
There are the mothers who are sitting at the bedside of their child… as they have been for days, weeks, months and perhaps even years… just praying that their child wins his or her battle over cancer.
To all these mothers we send out special hugs and love.
You may not feel happy today, you may feel stressed and you may feel as though life is overwhelming you…
To You we wish a Day of Absolute Divine Inner Peace.
You do not need to be strong…
You do not need to smile…
You do not need to stress…
You do not need to do anything at all.
Just lean back and allow yourself to be carried on the One Love that is there for just that purpose…

Then there are the mothers whose Little Fighters have unfortunately lost their battle, and whether it is the first Mother’s Day without their child or the twenty-first one, the pain and the longing is the same.
Our hearts go out to these mothers who, although they may no longer have a child are nevertheless still mothers.
We feel your pain and just want to let you know that we are holding you in our hearts today.
May a sense of peace settle over you and turn the pain into loving memories of happy times spent together.
Remember the good times…
Cry if you will, but let them be tears of love not sorrow.
Just close your eyes for a moment and listen to this… and find the calm within

Lastly, a personal wish from me for all of the Team LFCT Mothers who care for not only their own children, but those of others as well, because every Little Fighter is like their own child.
These are the mothers who take the African proverb “It takes a village to raise a child” to heart, and practice it every day.
Thank You for being the great Mothers you are…
Thank You for being the Caring Souls you are…
Thank You for taking the time to make life better for others
Thank You for being YOU!
