"She's my rock": Tributes to self-isolating mums this Mother's Day

Mother's Day looks very different this year as many people self-isolate from loved ones due to the coronavirus crisis.

Families have had to rethink ways of celebrating their mums because of age, underlying health issues, or if they themselves are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.

As a way of celebrating their super mums, our viewers from the Midlands have sent these lovely quarantined messages:

Our mum Christine Bratt just turned 73, she’s our rock, we just lost dad to dementia and she keeps everyone strong. Hate not getting over to show her how much I love her she’s in Kidderminster in Smethwick in isolation due to diabetes. Love you, mum.

My mum is amazing. She's in her 70s and doesn't fail to make me laugh. She's always been there for me and the family. She's been cancer-free for 3 years now. She's my everything, my rock. I couldn't live without her. I love her so much.

My mum Sue is amazing! The most selfless person I've ever met. Always putting others before herself. A doting nan to four grandchildren. She's a true feeder - a retired catering manager of 30 years to secondary school pupils and her heart and soul went into every meal.

My mum is a mother of seven, hardworking throughout her life alongside raising us, taught us how to do the best that we can do in everything, and be polite and hardworking, which we have all passed on to the next generation, and they will do the same.

I want to wish my Mum & Gran a massive shout out. I’m not going to be able to cuddle or see them properly this year as I’m an NHS worker & don’t want to risk it. I want them to know that I love them with all my heart and when this passes, we'll make up for lost time.
