Happy Mother’s Day… 💐
To my M U M! Thank you for always being there. For wanting me long before I came, for always cuddling me, and always making me feel a priority in your life. Thank you for never comparing me to anyone, and therefore teaching me to not do so either. Thank you for valuing my contentment over my achievements. Thank you for never loosing your temper, for always being a positive and steady presence in my life. And thank you for the time in London when you calmly said you would crush that angry man’s head with your bare hands if he touched me. I believed you mama; you fixed my broken wing in a world that had dropped me. Thank you for being the best mother to me, and also to my own babies. ❤️
To my B E A U! Thank you for trusting me and loving me just as I am. You make me feel wonderful. You always say “mama, I so happy with you!” – I have no idea where it came from, but I love it so much that you don’t say I ‘make’ you happy. Instead that you are happy ‘with’ me. We are indeed two separate souls – but wherever you fly, my heart will always be with you. 💙
To my B A B Y! Thank you for giving me faith. And challenging me to look deeper. Your arrival is eagerly anticipated. 💜
To N I C K! Thank you for supporting our family financially, so that I can give myself fully to our children. I couldn’t be the mother I am without you behind me every step of the way. Thank you for knowing what matters and letting me see it too. 💚
To my S I S T E R! Thank you for so closely sharing the parenting journey with me. For always being so generous with your time and energy and resources. You have a strength in you that I don’t see in many. And a kindness that is humbling. Just keep being you! 💛
To all my mummy F R I E N D S! I can see what amazing mothers you all are. I also see that you are more than your motherhood; I see it in each of you. Remember and hold onto who you are, and always know that you are not alone. Thank you so much for your friendships. 💖
Happy Mother’s Day to everyone who is right in the thick of it, and to EVERYONE who is helping and supporting us to be here.
