Today is the third anniversary of my mother’s death, the day she left behind all her illnesses, fears, unhappiness and insecurities and entered a greater peace and more wonderful joy than she ever imagined.
I miss her, but I am so grateful that I had a loving mother, despite all the difficulties which came on as she got older. There are far too many children out there who don’t have this love that should nourish and support them from their birth.
My sister sent a card which I keep permanently on display with a photo of Mum. It says
‘My Mum is a never-ending song in my heart.
I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune’
Here’s to you, Mum.
