"Some of us are lucky enough to have our mum's still, some of us have mums in nursing homes, some of us are lucky enough to still be living at home with our Mumma.

"But it's a beautiful day and we always like to honour our mothers ... Having a wonderful mum is one of the greatest gifts that God can bestow on any of us."
