Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mother's Day...

Here's the thing about Mums. When your mother asks, 'Do you want a piece of advice?' it is a mere formality. It doesn't matter if you answer yes or no. You're going to get it anyway.

Mum's just want the best for their kids.   I know that my Mum doesn't agree with all the choices I made.  I also know that she doesn't understand a lot of what goes on in my head.  However, I would be hard pressed to find a bigger supporter in my life than her.

She is a devoted Grandmother.  She loves my boys with every ounce of her being.  When we were going through all our struggles with Zachary, she would steadfastly stand behind him and say "He's just a very busy boy and any one who doesn't like it can get lost!".  It wasn't until later that we realised Zach was more than just busy, but at the time, her support was exactly what we needed.

She smiles and giggles and bursts with pride when Logan comes up and wants to show her things he's done, or wants to snuggle.  I know that it makes her very happy to be such an important part of the boys' life.  They love her... and why wouldn't they?  Who can turn down that sort of unwavering adoration?

So thanks Mum.  Thank you for being so wonderful, amazing and supportive of everything we've been through. Thank you for dropping everything to be there when we needed you.  Thank you for loving me to bits even when I am snippy with you. Thank you for providing such a wonderful childhood for me that I am inspired to do the same for my own boys.

I love you so very much.
