Happy Mother’s Day



My eldest was born three days after Mother’s day.  I’d been secretly hoping he would have arrived in time for me to celebrate my first Mother’s Day but God and babies make their own plans!  So it would be almost a full year before I’d enjoy Mother’s Day as a Mom.  That year my son and husband gave me “Love you Forever” by Robert Munsch.

A young woman holds her newborn son
And looks at him lovingly.

Softly she sings to him:
“I’ll love you forever
I’ll like you for always
As long as I’m living
My baby you’ll be.”

So begins the story that has touched the hearts of millions worldwide.


I’m not joking when I say, every time I open this book I get teary-eyed.  I took me forever to finish reading it the first time! 🙈 It’s a beautiful story that goes straight to the heart, and speaks to mums with children of all ages.



Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mums of body and heart, wherever you may be today.

      1. Nope. But my baby shower theme is surrounded by books and my cousin told everyone to bring their favorite childhood book instead of a card so it will get started before baby gets here 🙂

  1. Happy Mother’s Day! 😊 When I was putting together my Classic Mother’s Day Picture Books list, I knew I had to include Love You Forever. ❤ I’m not a mom yet, but it is surely a special book I remember my mom reading to me as a child!

  3. Hahahaha my best friend laboured right through Mother’s Day! What an auspicious start, eh? I think I remember Love You Forever being a book Joey read on Friends… if I recall correctly, it had all the characters (and more than a few viewers, I guess) tearing up too, so you’re not alone! ❤
