Happy Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day can be bitter sweet. I no longer have my mum with me and I miss her everyday. Today I am sad because I cannot get to the cemetery to take her flowers. Even if I could get there I wouldn’t be able to get my wheelchair anywhere near the grave, I know, I’ve taken pushchairs often enough, a wheelchair just wouldn’t make it.
But in my heart I know it doesn’t matter, like it didn’t matter I couldn’t make it down for her birthday due to being in hospital. I had enough time before she left this world to let her know how much I loved her, how much I was going to miss her every day and how she would always be here with me in my heart. A lot of people don’t get that chance, they don’t get to say goodbye like I did. I know that visiting the cemetery doesn’t really matter to her, it’s just for me, so I can feel that I have at least done something for her.
Anyway, my photo today is the cake I made for my future Mother-in-Law. (Oh yes, I haven’t mentioned it yet but I’m getting married to my partner of 13 years!!)
You may notice that there is a birthday present in the background too. It’s her birthday today as well, double whammy!
Happy Mothers Day to all the mummies out there, remember that having your child is gift enough xxx
