I’m not going to say ‘Happy Mother’s Day’


I’m not going to say ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ because I’m acutely aware that this day isn’t a joyous occasion for everyone. For years, it was simply a stark reminder to our family that we had lost a mother, a daughter…although Henry’s arrival has eased the pain a little for all of us. I’m so proud of my Mum, she was a shining example of bravery and resilience in the face of the Big C and I hate that I’ve had to navigate the past 18 years without her. This absolutely would not have been possible without the love and care of my Nan (and Grandad) who gave up everything to take care of me and are the glue that hold everything together. I’m sorry you had to watch Mum suffer and now worry about Henry too, I wish I could fix it. I know I don’t say it enough, but thank you and I (we) love you. I know you love Henry more than me now but I’m mostly ok with that x
