To All Mum’s

In Britain, it is Mother’s Day.

So, to all mother’s out there today, let yourself be pampered, looked after and treated to a day off. For I have decided to choose a Mother’s Day song by Jamie O’Neal.

She’s never pulled anybody from a burning building
She’s never rocked Central Park to a half a million
Fans screaming out her name
She’s never hit a shot to win the game

She’s never left her footprints on the moon
She’s never made a solo hot air balloon ride around the world
No, she’s just your everyday average girl, but

She’s somebody’s hero
A hero to her baby with a skinned-up knee
A little kiss is all she needs
The keeper of the Cheerios
The voice that brings Snow White to life
Bedtime stories every night
And that smile lets her know
She’s somebody’s hero, ohh

My mum was my hero, although there were times when we didn’t get along, there was a bond between us. She was always there when I got home from school, made sure I was safe. Even as an adult making sure I was wearing my scarf and coat, and calling her when I got home. My mother-in-law, helped me, looking after my children, giving them he chance to thrive as adults. I don’t know what I would have done without her.

My daughter, a step-mum, and mum, will always be a hero to me and her children. She doesn’t need money, or gifts, just the knowledge that being a mum, or step-mum is the best thing in the world to be.

  1. Happy Mother’s Day! That’s a lovely song you’ve quoted and very true too. I hope you had a great day. I spent yesterday drinking cocktails and prosecco with my mother-in-law so I’m a little worse for wear today.
