Happy Birthday Mummy!

mummyHappy Birthday Mummy!!

This is a very old picture of my mum and I. I wonder what was so funny?

Today is my mum’s birthday. Although it’s been eight years since she passed on, I continue to feel her presence daily in my interactions with the boys, when I spend time in my garden, when I am creating in my craft room and especially with my decisions on how I chose to live my life.

I try to do my best to keep her spirit alive for my boys through talks.  I don’t want it to be taboo to talk about people that have passed on. I welcome the questions, even if at times they are difficult. I have even slowly resumed my genealogy quest which brings back photos and more stories to share with them.

How do you let go of someone so important in your life? I can’t. I miss her dearly and continue to go through an array of emotions from anger, sadness and some days I even find peace with this major loss.

I know I will not stop celebrating her many achievements or her birthday. So today I will pause a little longer to remember that on this day, the most amazing woman in my life was born.

Love you,
