Kinda sad to read frequent, random, wonderful mother posts. Some of us have terrible mothers. Some of us raise ourselves, and are subjected to criticism and mental anguish. I’m truly happy for all the people who had the good fortune of a wonderful, loving ,kind and nurturing mother. It’s strange how it’s assumed that is the Shally mother of nightmares shirt, as I suppose, it should be. For lots of us, not so much. The abusive childhood she gave me sadly…but I’m so happy that others have lovely memories of their mother. For the most part they are the very pillar of society that brings up the next generation of level headed individuals. I want to be one of those mothers…I have 7 children and I am the polar opposite to my mother I love my children, care for them, talk to them, humour them, joke with them, I’m the shoulder for when they have bad days and the voice of reasoning in their childhood irrational moments. I adore my children unconditionally and from the moment I held them in my arms I realised exactly how a Mam should be. Her unconditional love, Her sense of humour, she had endless patience, unlike myself lol , She could always make me feel that everything would be okay in the end, love and miss her with all my heart and nothing will ever be okay again without her, But will try to live the rest of my life so that she will be proud I just got on with living, Till I see you again ma, you will be with me every day.
