WHERE’S YOUR MUM? Have you spoken to her today?
What if Mother’s Day, next year, this is your answer.
“Yeah, I miss Mum. I miss her endless lessons and voice of reason. I miss her judgment. I miss second guessing myself wondering what she’d think. I miss that safe place for me to have my tears wiped and my heart held. I miss forgetting to call her just because SHE wanted to say ‘hello’.
I miss her eyes. I miss the way she’d look at me and I’d wonder…. does she know? I miss her stories. I miss her telling me what life was like when she was my age and how lucky I should feel. I miss taking the time to ask her all the things that were going on inside her head.
I wonder now, did she ever have her heart broken?
I wonder now, what was her greatest love?
I wonder now, what was her secret wish for me?
I wonder now, what was her secret wish for herself?
I wish I knew all the things she wanted me to know about her. I wish I’d taken the time just to ask her.
I miss my Mum. I really wish she was here to annoy me, and judge me and make me feel guilty just one more time.”
WHEN YOUR MUM IS GONE, so are all her memories, her thoughts, her wishes and her dreams for tomorrow. When she finally closes her eyes all the things you wish you knew about your Mum, will be left unanswered forever.
If you are one of the lucky ones, give your Mum a call. NOW!
Then think about this as your weighing up whether to buy her flowers or choccies this Mother’s Day.
What about giving her the gift of tomorrow. A way to tell YOU her stories. A way for her to journal her thoughts and dreams and wishes. Let’s give her a way to introduce you to the woman you only thought you knew as ‘Mum’.
A way for her to tell YOU her stories. A way for her to journal her thoughts and dreams and wishes. Let’s give her a way to introduce you to the woman you only thought you knew as ‘Mum’.
Your Mum will NEVER ask you to sit and listen to all the things she wants you to know. Show her you don’t want to lose those precious times of HER life.
We only get one Mum and unfortunately, she doesn’t come with nine lives.
