In the art of spreading positive news and promoting other journalistic endeavors, I have come across two amazing stories that I need to share. Mother's Day is shining brightly across Australia (Happy Mum's Day to any of my readers with little or big kiddies!) so it is very fitting that inspirational stories of motherhood have been shared among us all. Do yourselves the favour and have a good read of these two articles - one which will leave you hugging your mum a little tighter today and another will remind you what you've got and how a mother's motivation can go a long way.
The first is the tragic story of Cody Walker's late mother and the impact her life and death had on him as a boy, man and football player. Andrew Webster leaves his readers reaching for tissues as he recounts the moment Walker found out his beloved mother had passed away and the try he scored for her just days later. A beautiful story. One that, despite the heartbreaking topic, is beautifully written. A story I believe Cody Walker will read with a tear in his eye and smile on his face as he reflects on his loss.
The second article is written by Ladies Who League's one and only Mary Konstantopoulos as she speaks of the three biggest mummy boys in the NRL. Cameron King, Shannon Boyd and Nathan Peats are mummy boys and proud of it. Their mothers too, are lost for words proud of their boys. Mary speaks to these three mothers to recite the many stories and motivational pep talks that got their boys where they are now. Struggles of their own aside, they have always been their for their boys and now the boys are making them proud. A lovely, easy to read article to put a smile on your face.
