I thought as it is Mothering Sunday this weekend that it would be appropriate to just spend some time appreciating how great mums are. I’d often heard that you appreciate your parents so much more when you have your own children and I completely agree. I’m still fairly new to the club but since becoming a mummy I’ve felt like I could burst with joy, completely overwhelmed and a little bit terrified, often in the space of an hour. The rollercoaster of emotions is then heightened by the serious lack of sleep and the pile of ‘mum guilt’ that they hand over when your baby is born.
Being a mother is tough!
But worth it? Oh my goodness, YES! The rewards are beyond comprehension. I’m incredibly blessed as I have many strong mothers in my family who are great role models so we have lots of support. This can often be taken for granted, which I am definitely guilty of. I know people say that Mother’s Day is just a commercial ploy to double the price of flowers but I actually think we need a reminder sometimes to stop and think about the women in our lives and say a massive THANK YOU!
You don’t have to wait until Sunday and you definitely don’t need to spend a fortune. Just give your mum/nan/whoever a call or if you can, find the time to put the kettle on and tell them you’re grateful for everything they do. It’ll make their day! As Baby Knight is just 8 months old, I’m not expecting breakfast in bed and a handmade card but I remember fondly all the times my sister and I would try and surprise our mum and make Mother’s Day really special so I’m looking forward to the years ahead.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you hardworking mums who spend all their time looking after everyone else. You are amazing!
Thanks for reading,
