It’s Mothers Day here… and before I pay homage to my own amazing wee mum, I’m also feeling incredibly blessed to be a mama myself. I’m not going to sugar coat it ladies, but I’m pretty sure most mummy’s out there will agree that parenting is undoubtedly one of thee toughest jobs… late nights, early mornings, battling a selection of bugs & viruses, going through numerous boxes of hair dye to cover early onset of grey, saying goodbye to spontaneous nights out, treading on teeny tiny Barbie shoes scattered across the floor in the middle of the night – particularly difficult whilst trying to suppress a collective flow of unthinkable swear words from the unexpected stab of pain. But it all seems to fade into oblivion, especially when your little girl gives you one of the hugest hugs and tells you that you’re her favourite person in the entire world.
As for my own Mama, well she’s just a one woman powerhouse. Having such a strong female to look up too and admire for ALWAYS putting her kids first is something you can never ever give enough thanks for. My mum has engrained a morale code in all of her four kids that even though sacrifices are so often made in parenting, there is no greater gift than having the true love & respect of your own children.
Thing is, regardless of Mothers Day, Fathers Day and anything else in between – everyday we should be grateful in knowing that whomever took the time to raise us and teach us the values we hold dear shouldn’t need a corporate ‘red letter day’ to be reminded of how much they mean to us. Sure the flowers & card is lovely, and is always well appreciated, but the greatest gift for me is seeing my daughter genuinely happy in life. Laughing, smiling & watching her little personality blossom is priceless. In fact, there’s no greater feeling than when your kid tells you they love you with all their heart ❤
