Here in Britain, it is Mothers Day, or Mothering Sunday for the more traditional folks. I could not let today go by without a mention of my mother, and how thankful I am to have her. As a family we have had a pretty rocky 12 months, my mum was really sick for half of it, and at times it was touch and go whether she would make it or not.
Thankfully, she is well on the road to recovery and is getting stronger as every day goes by. The past 12 months have brought us so much closer, and has made me realise how important it is to enjoy the time that you have with the people you love the most. We all take things for granted, but I am making a conscious effort to be thankful for all of the little things in life.
For us, today is just about appreciating the fact that we can still enjoy time together, and not taking anything for granted. So for all the mums out there, Happy Mother Day!
