|Mum with me.|
As Mother's Day is drawing to a close and my family have gone home I am thinking of you. I have actually been thinking of you all day which is not unusual because there is always a moment in every day when you creep into my thoughts.
You are the angel on my shoulder telling me to be a better person, reprimanding me at times and making me do the right thing. I hear your voice so clearly and in my mind you are still young and not the old lady you used to see when you looked into the mirror.
This is my seventh Mother's Day without you as you have been gone for nearly eight years. It really doesn't seem that long but then I think of all that has happened in the family since you left, you have missed so much.
Did you know your granddaughter visited Australia and Thailand? You would have been so worried about her and also so pleased when I tell you that she went to university and is now a social worker helping children and families, you would be so proud of her.
You are also a great Grandmother, imagine that! Yes, your grandson is now a daddy and what a great dad he is. You would just love Abigail, she has such a gorgeous smile it just lights up a room.
We talk about you a lot and always when we have a cup of tea and have to have a biscuit to "taste the tea" which was always your excuse .
I don't know why I had to tell you all those things today except that I still miss you so much, but I'm sure you know and you are watching over us all especially your great granddaughter.
You always believed in a heaven and that we would all meet again one day, so until that day,
Happy Mother's Day Mum. x
