‘sup blog readers?
Today’s post is about my Mum, who I would not (literally!) be here without. Not only did she bring me into this world but she has supported and shaped me throughout my whole life.
I was going through a box the other day that I found in my cupboard. It had many entertaining random things from when I was younger. Letters from family and friends, a CD with photos from my final year at school and a bunch of little notes that my parents had written and stashed in my suitcase when I went on a school excursion (being away from home was a big deal for me (even at 16!) and my parents hid them so I would find them while I was away). So I’ve forgotten where I was going with this…
I did also find a letter from my Mum that she had sent after I had moved out of home. It reminded me of just how damn lucky I am to have such an outstanding woman as my mother.
She wrote in this letter that when she used to pick me up from the bus stop, she could tell what kind of day I had had from the second I got off the bus and I would then off load onto her (this is still the case and I’m 23!). I remember always being able to talk to her and my Dad about anything.
My Mum has been so wonderfully supportive, reassuring, helpful and calming throughout my life and especially over the last few years while I have been going through uni. She has helped me with many assignments and personal “learning experiences” as my Dad calls them.
I have laughed with her about the silliest of things and cried to her when I have felt distraught and devastated.
And she always always listens.
I feel pretty blessed to have the parents I do and I just wanted to share that with you, blog readers 🙂
Have a wonderful week and try to make the effort to tell someone who means a lot to you that you love them.
Love you Mum!!
