I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve posted on here. Partly because work has been crazy but also because we’ve had a bereavement. At the end of February I lost my grandmother.
She was nearly 90 and lived a great life, full of passion and enthusiasm, so we can ‘celebrate’ her life in a way she would have wanted. But when it comes down to it, she was still a mother. Now my mum doesn’t have a mother.
This made Mother’s Day so much more difficult. Whilst I wanted to enjoy my first one as a mum of two, I had to support her. This was the first time in her 60+ years she hadn’t been able to speak to her mum on Mother’s Day. She’ll never be able to do it again.
It breaks my heart. It really dawned on me that many people have to go through this. Whilst shop window are full of presents and gifts, telling you to treat your mum, lots of people are hurting inside because they’ll never get to do it.
