With the news bringing excitement and joy all over the world, we would like to congratulate the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry on the arrival of their baby boy! We wish them all the best in their new roles as parents. This news comes as here in Australia we are all preparing to celebrate our own mums this Sunday for Mother’s Day, and thank them for all they have done for us.
When I look back at my life so far, I can’t help but notice where my own mum has helped in getting me to where I am today. Her unwavering support has guided me through every hardship and allowed me to achieve everything I have. She has also shown and allowed me to work through my struggles and setbacks with humility.
While Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to say thank you, it can also remind us to share the love and gratitude every day.
So mum, if you’re reading this, thank you.
Thank you for picking me up when I’m down. For understanding my worries that will mean nothing in a year but are so important to me now. Thank you for your patience when I haven’t understood the things I should. For when I have fallen short of the person I am meant to be. For continuing to love me anyway.
Thank you for remembering all the important dates and all the little things I love, like blooming sunflowers and my go-to coffee order. Thank you for listening to me go on and on about my passions, for being interested in my work. For reading my articles and for being honest with me when they need some serious editing.
Thank you for keeping faith in me when I fail, equally as when I succeed. For showing me that it’s okay to not be perfect but that you can always be kind. Thank you for paving the way to understanding what love should look like, and how to be truly selfless as you have been all these years.
To my dearest mum, I love you. I’m so grateful for all you have taught me and all you have sacrificed for me. Happy Mother’s Day!
