My mum and dad Copyright some fabulous Sydney photographer that unfortunately I don’t his name
Just writing the words ‘Happy Mother’s Day Mum’, being so faraway makes me want to burst into tears. You all probably know that I am sentimental fool but with the passing of the years I have now lived almost 12 years away from my family and my mum and I don’t know what the future holds for me. Maybe I will spend many more years away from my family. The thought breaks my heart, the tears have started to roll!
My mum is special for so many reasons. She is one of those incredible women who makes things effortless, she has the energy of all her children put together and for mum nothing has ever been or ever will be impossible. There is always a solution to every problem and with her wonderful country spirit and her reams of positivity, if anyone will find the way it will be my mum. She loves us unconditionally no matter how annoying and impatient we can be!!
Most of us kids take our mothers for granted no how old we grow. Our mothers are the guiding force of the family and the ones that glue us all together they work hard to never let the family un-stick and keep the love and the chat flowing. Mum juggles all our different personalities and ducks and weaves to keep us happy, always putting our happiness before hers.
I wish I lived next door to my mum (and dad). I would pop in for afternoon tea, hear all the family news from the one source and the shenanigans of her and her mates (whom I love – Dawn, Lorna and Audrey)! I know her eyes would light up just like they do on skype when we chat except we would be together in the one room, in person with scones and jam or cream or something delish she would have on hand.
For all of you lucky enough to be with your mother on mother’s day, look after her, cherish her and remember all the little sacrifices our mums have made for us throughout the years.
Mum, I love you and happy birthday too!!
Ps; I have always loved the above photo of my parents, the photo was taken before I was born and I adore to see them as just two people in love as well as my mum and dad.
