What to write in a Mother’s Day card? That is a question that is harder to answer than one would think. When I was asked what would be the personalised message that I wanted on my bouquet, I had to stop and think. I’m not a Mother and my Mother isn’t around anymore either. (It’s been what, 10 years? 15? It’s all a blur and I can’t memorise dates anyway).
That said, I still think that Mother’s Day is a day to be celebrated – if only, in my case, the memory of my own Mother. Other women should be celebrated too – I have friends who are amazing Mothers to their children – but also the women who are great friends and have been almost like Mothers to me in these last few difficult months. Holding my hand, cooking for me, making me laugh, lending a shoulder to cry on and taking me to the hospital. You see, motherhood is not just for Mothers… Thank you.
Happy Mother’s Day!
