Mother’s Day, is a day to pay tribute to mothers around the world and all that they do. I don’t think that one can truly appreciate the magnitude of a mothers love until one has actually become a mother.
I know my mother has always been one of the most important people in my life, she is my biggest advocate and my voice of reason, she is the reason I worry so much, but also the reason that I care so much.
Through the years I have tested my mother many times. I have pushed her, and caused her much grief, but she has always been there for me.
As the years pass and I face my own challenges as a mother, my mothers influence guides me through this unchartered, for me, course.
In the last year or so I have witnessed my mother become ill on two occasions, both incidents were very scary for me. The realisation that she is getting older is something that I am struggling to come to terms with.
To suddenly see this super woman look so frail and dare I say it old, was like having the rug pulled right out from under me. Fortunately my mum is fine now. She is back to cooking and caring for us all.
Tomorrow in honour of Mother’s Day we are taking my mum out for a lovely lunch by the sea, it’s our way to say thank you for all that she has done and all that she continues to do for us.
So Happy Mother’s Day mummy, and Happy Mother’s Day for all the mums out there in the blogosphere.
