I’m pretty sure I’ve already mentioned the amazing woman who is my mother on here before, but today was her birthday so it is definitely time to celebrate her amazing self a bit more…
My mum is incredible. She is strong, compassionate, creative, intelligent, loving, funny, thoughtful and fiercely optimistic. She is a constant source of comfort and inspiration. She is one of my best friends.
She loves books and music and chocolate and tea. I have vivid memories of singing loudly with her in the kitchen and in the car on the way to school, and a million other memories, big and small, which remind me how lucky I am. She has made me so much of who I am today.
She is still one of the first people I want to run to for a hug when things aren’t going well, and one of the first I want to call when I have good news.
An amazing woman and friend I would be lucky just to know her. To have her as my mum…well…there’s just no explaining how blessed I am.
Happy birthday mum, love you beyond words.x
