I have come to the conclusion that my mum is a superhero.
She’s a 4ft 10 inches, petite, blonde, shy, non cape wearing, world-keeping-together, superhero!!
She spends her days running around after me and my brother and sisters, making sure we are all OK, fixing our problems, offering advice, never judging, and generally keeping all our lives together without a second thought for herself. Its a given that no matter when you need her, she is ALWAYS there, for all of us, not once has she let any of us down. I don’t know how she does it…. she must have superpowers.
She is everything to me, my best friend, partner in crime, shoulder to cry on, person to rage about the world to, the person to bring me to reality and make me see sense, my one constant in my entire life, and by absolute rock.
……I have never needed her as much as I do now.
Throughout this infertility journey she has been by by side.
She’s cried with me, raged with me, counselled me, comforted me, calmed me, listened my inner crazy, seen through the brave face, and been there, no questions asked, 100%, without fail.
I know she knows I love her, and I know she knows I appreciate all she does, and I do tell her all the time, but I don’t think words could ever express my gratitude to her for all she does to keep us all going, and I know I would not have gotten through the hurdles I have faced so far had it not been for her constant support. She rings or texts every day, if something’s wrong, she just know, its like she has an inner sense, and despite any front she knows exactly how I’m feeling and how I’m thinking without me even needing to say a word
I think one of the reasons I have always wanted to be a mum so badly, is so that I can have a little person feel about me, the way I feel about her.
I hope one day I can be half the mum she has been to me, and I hope one day to give her a beautiful grandchild, because one thing is for sure, that little person will have the best nanny in the whole world.
I know you wont read this mum, but I love you, so much.
Thank you for being you.
Your little girl
