Mother’s are the glue that holds everyone together!
Today, it’s Mothers Day 2021. I’m sitting her with my boys and I am comforted to know that I have them and they have me. I woke up to love, comfort and my children surrounding me.
I can’t ever imagine them not being here. I know that one day they will fly the nest and begin their own families and their own adventures.
I’m happy, I’m so thankful and I’m truly grateful for being a mum every single day.
None of which could ever have happened without the mums before me. My mum and my grandmothers.
Today I think about three of my parents, who have lost their mums. When I think about the enormity of that, I feel a lump in my throat and tears start to well, one day that will be me.
I could never ever imagine my mum not being a part of my life. She is the glue that holds everything together. She is my heart, my soul and my number one supporter. She has been their through thick and thin and I could never imagine her not being here.
The loss, the heart ache, the grief she must feel every single day, to never be able to see, touch or hear my nan’s voice, ever again.
I lost three of my grandmothers in one year, last year and as a granddaughter, the loss was so great. The heart break was real. I can only image how it must have been for my mum, my dad and my father in-law, to lose their mums. A loss I never want to have to feel.
But for now, I think about the lives my grandmothers lead, the lives they impacted, the hearts they touched. I am comforted to know that they are always with me, every single day.
Mothers day is just another reminder that our mums aren't going to be around forever and we must love, appreciate and spend as much time as we can with them now! As one day they will just be a memory.
Give your mum a call, take her to lunch, tell her how much you live and appreciate her.
For those that have lost their mums, celebrate their lives and take comfort in knowing that your mum whether on earth or not, will always be with you.
Happy mothers day.
