Happy Mother’s Day.

Today is Mother’s Day in the UK so I would like to wish all mums anywhere in the world a very happy mother’s day.

I was spoilt my eldest son drove an hour and a half journey to meet hubby, hubby’s 98yr old mother to buy me dinner and bring me some chocolates. In fact the traffic was so bad it took him over two hours but he made it, he even bought his Nan chocolates too.

My youngest son met me Friday with his youngest son for coffee and he bought me a bouquet of flowers.

My middle son is popping in after he finishes work tonight.

So this year I have been really spoilt. I appreciate that because some years things have not been so smooth.

Sometimes I think we can expect too much of these “Days” Mother’s, Father’s, and Grandparent’s . They are all man made after all. So that the card makers, confectioners, florists and restaurants can make money.

We need to celebrate eachother every day, love, forgive and kind at all times.

My mum and Dad are both dead and I miss them so. I often feel the need to talk to them.

So where ever you are, love your friends, family especially Mum and Dad they will not be there forever.

    it all sounds lovely with your family, and I’m sure it hard for you in a way, missing your own mom

    Glad you had a lovely mothers day. I spent it with my eldest but Georgina is in Manchester not back until next weekend. Sad about your mum and dad. I didn’t get to see my mum as she is up in Edinburgh. I wish I had more time to spend with them. I miss them and am aware that they are getting older.

      I did have a lovely day, it’s so difficult to get everyone together at once but we know they all care. You can always ring your mum and dad ..do. Dad’s been gone 41years and Mum 29years now .πŸ’œπŸ’œ
