I love that today there are so many people around the world appreciating their mothers, but on the other hand, I hate how we’ve reduced making our mothers feel special to only one day a year. Regardless, I hope all the mothers, grandmothers and step mothers out there are having a lovely day and feeling appreciated like all women should be.
I had a post planned about the perfect mothers day gift guide, but honestly, the best gift you can give your mum this mothers day is to just show her appreciation and gratitude. It wasn’t until I was a teenager that I started to realised how amazing my mum really was. I still remember how many times my house would be the place that everyone goes to for food, for emergencies when you’ve cut yourself playing at the park and when you just wanted somewhere to hang out. And it was all because of the way my mum treated people and how she made them feel.
Lately I’ve been noticing how much i’m turning into my mother and my grandmother, and honestly, I’m loving it. My mum is without a doubt the bravest, kindest and most loving person I’ve ever met in my entire life, and i’m just lucky enough that she’s my mother. My nan is just as amazing (I guess it runs in the family) and I love spending time with her. I aspire to travel the world just like she did, and I love that we both have the same blunt yet honest opinions. Not only are they both my idols, but they inspire me every day and I’m grateful to have such strong female role models.
My mum is such a beautiful woman inside and out and I honestly can’t think of one time when she hasn’t gone out of her way to help someone who needed support. I think the more you grow older, the more you respect your mum because you realise how much they do for you and how much they give up just to make you happy. My mum has supported me and helped me grow into the woman I am today, and after a tough couple of months fighting depression and anxiety, she is the reason I’m still here now.
I don’t need “mothers day” to realise how amazing and special my mum is. I’m aware of that every day and honestly I couldn’t be more grateful that the universe blessed me with such an amazing person from the day I was born.
