my mum

Each step I take in my life I think of her. Each step that leaps me forward, each step that takes me backwards, I think of her.

I will walk for the rest of my life.

And she will be with me in every step I take.

She will catch me when I fall. She will stand by my side as I walk with my children through my life. It is not the way I need, or I would want; it is the only way I have left to be with her.

I hold my mum in my heart. We will walk, and dance together.

{If only you could see my mum's grooves. There will be a lot of laughter in those times of dancing.}

Tomorrow is five years since I held my mum. Tomorrow I will hold her even closer than I have ever done before.

I miss you mum.

(This post is brave of me. I wanted to walk through my day tomorrow with no one even knowing that I still hurt, and want her back. I believe this will never go. She was a very special person, and I was blessed to have her as my mum).


  1. you are brave. will be thinking of you tomorrow. hugs. xx

  2. It takes courage to admit that we are vulnerable. But I think you will always miss your mum every single day and I think that everyone would feel the same way. x

  3. Thanks for sharing with us and being honest with yourself - it's the road to peace I'm sure.

    Can I be really insensitive and ask where your rug is from? I love it.

  4. thank you for sharing and for all your special words... mom died 33 (!!!) years ago and you are right - you will always hurt and always want her back...but as you said, we are grateful and lucky to have had such special moms for the short time we did...sending you courage and strength for tomorrow (and the rest of your days!) :) x amy

  5. oh dear friend. I thought to you today and your words are touching so much. I could not imagine how it feels to lost the parents, but i could feel your wonderful heart...your emotions inside...and your mum would be so proud of you and your life...its the right way...its your way to feel ..."no one is really gone as long as you think of him"...;)...a big hug and so much more...take care...cheers...i...

  6. thinking of you and your mom, x.
