Happy mothers day!

To all those mums out there Happy mothers day.

Hope you all get spoilt rotten for the whole day.

My mum- She was a nurse before she had 6 children, She lost one at 27 weeks. But now she has 5 children 5 inlaws and 10 grandchildren and she is the best mother, grandmother that we could ever ask for. She is the mum that will always be there and will not judge you or anyone, she will just get in and do the dirty jobs and loves each and everyone of us for who we are and the way we are. She is truly amazing and the patients she must have. She has three daughters and each of us tell her how things are done in our houses and she will not complain she will do them the way we want. She folds the towels how I fold the towels she makes sure my sisters kitchen benches are clean the way she likes it and she does not judge us for our weakness. She truly is a great reason to celebrate mothers day.

My mums mum is the only grandparent we have left and she is turning 91 this year. She is special in her own way. She is an amazing strong woman and has lived through a lot. She was the only girl in a family of 7 children. She had 3 older and 3 younger brothers and her mother was a sick woman and died before she was 20. She then had to take on the roll of the mother and for these reasons she only got along with 2 of her brothers. Respect for women in the 30s and 40s was in very short supply and my nan never got any appreciation for what she did for her family.

My grandma- well where do I start. My grandma was an amazing woman. she is special and always will be and the hardest thing I have ever had to see was my grandmother get old and frail and then leave us. She was my fathers mother and there is a special bond between a boy and his mother (thank goodness cause I only have 2 boys LOL) I saw my father breakdown for the very first time ever at his mothers funeral, and I am so glad to have been there for him.
My grandfather called Grandma his little trouble. She was anything but and was his rock and his love.

I am very lucky to have had some very special mums in my life if they haven't all been my mum. I am lucky to have had these mums behind the people that I love more than anything in the world and this day is for all of them and for you as well.
