Today is Mother’s Day. For those who have read my story and followed my journey, Mother’s Day is the most difficult day of the year for me. I miss her everyday. It’s been nearly 8 years and it still feels like yesterday since she left this world. I still get moments where, when times get really, really tough or if there is a little bump in the road and that’s when I need her the most.
To listen to her advice, to reassure me that everything will be okay. It good to vent your feelings and emotions to family and friends but having the woman who brought you into the world and the one who you have this incredible, unspoken bond and the unconditional love she can give you, it’s not the same..
I’m sadly having to now go through another bump in the road, another setback and I wish, really wish she would miraculously appear in my presence quietly sitting near me and ask, ‘What’s wrong, Katie?’ Oh, god.. wouldn’t that be just amazing?.. Even writing this, I am quite an emotional person and I am finding it so hard to fight back tears right now. But this is a way for me to get my feelings down. Sometimes, people talk to their departed ones in their head and ask themselves the question ‘ What would my mum do? What would my dad do in this situation?’ Others like me, would write it down and in this case, write my blog.
For those of you that still have your mums, appreciate them, cherish them, make them feel special and thank them once in a while, because one day they are going to really need you to take care of them.
Happy Mother’s Day everyone! ❤️🌼🌼🌺
