I love Mothers Day. I love celebrating my Mum. I have said it so many times on this blog and I will always repeat it. My Mum is my favourite person and without a shadow of a doubt - I would not be who I am today without her.
Last month I went and saw Viva Forever, a musical based on songs by the Spice Girls. At one point in the musical Viva has to leave home and she sings the song 'Mama' to her Mum. When it was being sung, all I could think about was my Mum. In the next year or so I will be leaving home and it's not my bedroom, my house or my road that I'll miss. It'll be living without my Mum. All my life I have lived knowing she was just across the landing if I needed her, and in reality in my future she will be about 45 minutes away.
She says it's all part of growing up and that's true. But one thing I do know. I want to grow up with her always in my life because I cannot live without her. I've done posts talking about everything she has done for me and my siblings, and how she has supported me through all my life's trial and tribulations. Yet, this song says everything that I want to say to her and so much more. It's says how I am sorry for all the times I was a pain in the backside and treated you like my enemy. When in truth you're one of my biggest supporters. It says how much I love you for being the Mum I have always needed. And it says thank you for always being at the other end of the phone, the other side of the front door and next to me on my bed when I have needed a cuddle with you.
I know today may also be a tough day for some people as their Mums are no longer with us. But I want them to know that no matter what, if your Mum is here on Earth or flying in spirit above us. You still have a Mum and you can always celebrate her!
Happy Mothers Day Mum, I'm so happy I am your daughter and I always will be.
