Mother’s Day is just around the corner and for the first time in ages I don’t get too spend it with you. I know I tell you ‘I love you’ a lot but I don’t think you realise just how much you actually mean to me. So mum, I think it’s time that I told you.
Your my best friend. My hero. The woman who gave me a chance. And I can never thank you enough. I know we drive each other mad, I’m a lot like you in that way. And we are just as daft as each other, and don’t roll your eyes either. (You know it’s true.) I got my stubborn attitude from you. Head strong and I always stick to my guns. Like you I guess. Your a very large part of my life, I want to go as far as I can in this world for you. I want to give you all the things you never had, the way you did for me. But most of all mum, I live to see your smile. To know that your proud of me and that you love me. Even though I know you already are. No matter how many times I mess up or try to act like I know everything. I can never tell you how grateful I am, how strong you have made me. How I try to better myself because of you.
You’re always there when I need you, whether it’s to have a chat or a small gossip about something or other over a good old fashioned cuppa. Your door is always open. You even supported me getting a tattoo (even though you hate them) I remember the night I stayed up with you cause you were terrified after your accident. And I don’t think you realise how scared that made me. Seeing such a strong woman fear to sleep, who always faces challenges head on…..practically break down in front of me. It made me realise that one day, one horrible dark day I’ll loose you.
Like you say mum. Grave stones don’t talk back.
So until that day, I’ll make the most of what I have. You gave up your time for me mum, so I’ll do the same. Even if it’s just to pop over for a cuppa and some cookies. Or just to have some gal time out shopping. (The best shopping partner ever!!!) Your the first person I go to for advice, even though I don’t always follow it. Much to your annoyance. I’ll defend you, like have defended me. It’s time to let me be the sword and shield now mum. So don’t be stubborn. Your my mum, the only one I have and the only one I want. I love you mum.
Lots of Love From Kiwi xx
