Happy Mothers Day

I lost my Mum when I was 10 years old and I’ve always been uncomfortable around Mother’s Day because it reminds me of what I lost.

Denise (my step mum) quietly cared for me behind the scenes (even when I didn’t want to acknowledge her as a guiding loving force in my life).

Linda (my best friends mother) had an open door policy at her house and was always there to hug me and give me a safe spot to land when I felt I had nowhere to go.

Auntie Bonnie has always been my champion and cheerleader and took me under her wing when I left home.

And wonderful Pat (my mother in law) who immediately embraced me when Gerry first introduced me as his girlfriend. I’m so happy to be a member of the Anderson family.

I think my Mum would be so happy and grateful to these woman for stepping in to love a little girl who needed love and attention. I feel so lucky.

Happy Mothers Day. 🙂

    What a beautiful tribute to the women who loved you best. We don’t always realize what we have when we’re young — sometimes it takes perspective to see how lucky and supported we were.
