Today is my Mum’s birthday. I am so incredibly sad to be so far away from her today, but I am also feeling so incredibly blessed that I have had her all my life. We haven’t had the smoothest ride, ups and downs like most Mothers and Daughters, but I can confidently say that we are strong women with a strong bond and a love for each other that wont be broken (trust me, a lot of things have tried, yet here we are).
I owe everything to this woman, particularly the mother I am today. I would be nothing without her love and guidance, her lessons in patience and her belief in me. I am far away at the moment, pursuing a grown-up life and family of my own, but there’s not a day that goes by that I’m not thinking of this marvelous woman and the things she has taught me. She also managed to make 3 additional, good looking and incredibly intelligent human beings after me. She is quite a lady.
Happy birthday, Mummy. Counting down the days till we can go out for coffee and shopping again. You are, without a doubt, my favorite coffee date. Enjoy your day!
I love you.
