My husband is one of those who remembers Mother’s Day for me and his step mum (for readers who don’t know both of our mum’s are no longer with us). I don’t know if my hints over recent weeks have helped too.
So this morning, my 18 month old toddled around the bed to hand me a card and gifts. It was so adorable to have her come and give me it all. I am a lucky lady who received a mummy day card and voucher for a massage, along with a framed photo and card made at the childminder’s. My daughter has also booked a table at our local Italian restaurant for dinner. I am being extremely spoilt today!
Best of all today is about remembering how lucky I am to be a mummy. Something that I had always wanted to be and now I am so lucky and priviledged to be the mummy to my daughter.
At the same time I spend a little bit of time remembering my own mother who passed away in 1997. I wouldn’t be who I am today without my wonderful mother, who loved me and my sister unconditionally, was amazing at time management, was creative and cooked fabulous meals. I will always miss her and miss that she is not around to see her granddaughter.
Above all today should be about remembering what a wonderful and important job being a mother is.
